Summer is finally here! (kinda...)

Anyone who has lived in Chicago for more than a couple of years knows, there is no relying on the expected season changes that everyone else in the midwest has the luxury of expecting. Summer starts on June 21st, but as a Chicagoan, we won't be surprised if we're still wearing a hat and sweater on June 20th!

Spring as brought us a few beautiful days so far, and we can't help but get excited to begin redoing our outdoor spaces!  Whether you have a small porch or a grand patio, we have put together some of our favorite pieces to bring your outdoor spaces to life!  (regardless of when Mother Nature will allow us to enjoy it....)

When decorating any room inside your home, there are a lot of components that go into it; Furniture, art, lighting, textiles and decor are all obvious pieces that are really thought through when redesigning a space.  But when in comes to designing an outside space, we typically fall short.  Some kind of seating, something to put drinks down on, a grill, and done.  

We justify this because it isn't used throughout the year, but we all need to change this mindset! Take a look at these two different designs, and let us know what you do to make your outdoor spaces really stand out!
