Style Board: Backyard
It's such a short season in Toronto, this blissful period of outdoor living. There is a magical period when it is just the right temperature to sit bare-armed outside until the moon comes up, and the June bugs have finished their mad ritual of bouncing off the window into my lap, and it seems like the sun is never going to set. Heaven.
I'm never going to be a winter lover, no matter how much hygge I bring into my life. Summer is my season hands down.
We were planning a major reno of our backyard (the current situation features a chain link fence around a well-loved but very 1970s swimming pool) but the pricing came back significantly higher than we budgeted. Coupled with a month-long trip to Italy in July and our sell/stay/sell/stay conversations, it was clear we needed to put on the brakes. At least until spring.
In the meantime, here is what I had planned for the furniture and general feel. I just can't do matched patio sets!
