Jen Stagg runs a great blog called With Heart. In 2014, she spruced up her back deck with a pergola, outdoor curtains, lighting and furniture. We think it looks great! And it also inspires us to reconsider our own backyard as a great place to host friends and family, even as the weather turns colder. By adding some susbstantial outdoor curtains and maybe some heating lamps, we plan to turn our Northern California back porches into lovely gathering spaces at Thanksgiving and Christmas.
