Screened-in porches are not the norm in California, so when we bought our house in Sacramento a decade ago (and sold it since) – we never considered attaching a porch and so the summer nights, and early mornings were spent indoors just so I wouldn’t get attacked by mosquitoes – since I am very allergic. Which made me often wondered, why have such a perfectly landscaped backyard if I wasn’t able to enjoy the outdoors in the warmer months.

Anyway, while we wait out our turn – it looks like early March or late March – who knows anymore, I am already doing research on the rest of the exterior decor with minor design updates. Here’s my favorites so far: And here’s the rest of my favorites from Home Designing 🙂 just because I love modern architecture and design:
