In ‘n’ Out

Save for the extraordinarily high pollen count, the weather here in Atlanta has been practically perfect–sunny with temps in the mid 70s. For me, it doesn’t get any better than that. So, naturally, my thoughts are turning to spending more time outdoors.

I love the concept of outdoor living rooms, especially given the wide variety of indoor/outdoor fabrics available today. It wasn’t all that long ago that your choices for outdoor fabrics came down to hunter green or basic beige. But today’s bevy of beauties is not only hard-wearing but high-style, too–certainly chic enough to be used indoors or out. And I’m not the only one who’s noticed. A recent post by Material Girls gave a rundown of some of the season’s best. I’m particularly fond of these picks from Donghia, Schumacher and Lee Jofa. But there are SO many options out there. Which ones are your faves?
