Inspired in Capri

On the deck (facing the Bay of Naples) of J.K. Place Capri, Capri, Italy.  

I recently returned home from a trip to Italy where fortunately the sun was shining every day. Happily, I spent most of the days resting and relaxing in the outdoors on patios, terraces, even a deck. The Romans truly understood ideal elements for an outdoor room. While away, I realized how behind I am in getting my own ‘Outdoor Room’ ready for summer. I have many excuses, many of them legitimate – most of all, I have lacked motivation due to our cool rainy spring. Anticipating that many of you are in the same ‘behind state’ I am in, I thought I would share my strategy for getting my own outdoor room ready for this weekend (yes, this weekend)

Using our best local merchants, here is what I recommend to you all:

Most importantly, fill your space with your friends and family, kids and pets. People create the experience. Keep it simple, enjoy, and my warmest wishes for star gazing outdoors.


Warm regards,
