Forget that we’re in the middle of February here. Today was so warm that I actually took Taz for a walk without a jacket. That got me looking ahead to spring and living outdoors again. This fantastic outdoor space was designed by Brian Patrick Flynn with Hayneedle for his outdoor deck in his Atlanta home.

I love the unexpected plum color but it totally works as it’s a color you would see out in nature with the grays and browns. And all those lush plants. And the Marrakech pendants. And the fun plum fabric on the ottoman with the greek key detail. I think I have just found my ideal patio design scheme.

Think you would care to join me for a few cocktail drinks here on some fine summer evening? I hope you would.
