Space is at the top of most peoples' wish list when it comes to homes. I'm lucky to have a period house with a large yard, but lately I'm yearning the intimacy and coziness of a courtyard. One enveloped by greenery and lots of pots. A little outdoor sanctuary where I can drink my morning coffee and soak up the afternoon sun. Oh, who am I kidding? I just want to sit out there and drink Rose'. If you're lucky enough to have one, don't  dismiss it as a small, useless space. Have some fun with it and inject a little personality. Perhaps try a hanging chair or bench sitting with lots and lots of plants. Always lots of plants! Try different sized and shaped pots, both hanging and sitting on the ground, and there's always room for a gorgeous climber. Some string lights would also be great and perhaps some scattered oversized cushions to laze around. Think of it as an outdoor room - make it as comfy and inviting or as funky and cool as your indoor space.
