Why We Love It

Just for today, I'll imagine I live in a place where you'd dare to invite your guests to step outdoors during the summer―a place where the smell of potted roses and gardenias drifts on the cool evening breeze and the insect life minds its own business. I would love to gather my friends on a loggia, safe from the errant rain shower, and preside over a festive dinner party in a civilized outdoor room such as this one from Southern Living. The space also allows for the use of real furniture, as these homeowners have done with a pretty wood cabinet that could serve as a bar.
