I don't know if any of you have noticed a new sidebar picture I have added: Gardens to Inspire. In Sacramento California, outdoor living is as much a part of our existence here as indoors. In the summer we get the Delta breezes that blow in and cool the evenings, and outdoor entertaining is common all summer. I don't know about you, but nature influences so much of the interior design that I do. Almost all of the homes and restaurants I work on have an indoor/outdoor flow that is very important to the design. I am going to try and post outdoor "rooms" on a regular basis and renew the sidebar picture at least weekly. I hope you let me know what you think of my idea and if you enjoy the images!
These are a couple of not very well done photos of the part of my own garden still intact during our remodel.
