I often speak of downsizing – which I’ve done and really will never go back to owning stuff and more stuff to fill a home. I prefer a small space, a loft or a studio filled with the simplest of decors and a handful of memorable collectables – that’s all I need to feel content.

Decor: Screened-In Porches For Lazy Summer Days

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. Recently, I’ve been considering a renovation project for a home of a friend in the suburbs, about two hours from San Francisco, where a screened-in porch would be ideal – at least for my visits 🙂 Would you consider a screened-in porch or have one you adore?
