Thanks, Remodelista, for spending the week doing what we love best: finding new ways to make the indoors an extension of our outdoor living space.
Above: Table settings bring a little outdoors (eucalyptus leaves) to the plate. Julie thinks LA designer Heather Taylor is making the perfect linen napkins for summer. Couldn’t agree more. See why in Left Coast Luxury, Table Linen Edition.
Above: Christine tells all in her Remodeling 101 post on How Shaker Peg Rails Saved My Summer Sanity: her fear of losing it over the soggy towels and swimsuits tossed aside by her sons and their friends at her Connecticut home. To the rescue: Shaker peg rails, inspired by rooms like this one at the serene High Road House hotel in London, where floors are mercifully clutter-free.
Above: In her Design Sleuth post about Shade Sails, Julie hunts down stylish versions of those tension-mounted triangles of UV-blocking fabric that double the comfort of your outdoor space when temperatures rise. For example, the Coolaroo Shade Sail shown here shuts out up to 90 percent of UV rays.
Above: Furniture that works just as well inside as outside: Is there such a thing? A husband-and-wife team in Melbourne, Australia, makes carefree rockers, Shiny Happy Furniture From Melbourne, that will cheer up both a deck and a living room.
