As we approach the summer months, the line between indoors and outdoors begins to blur and we find ourselves spending more time on back patios and screened porches. These extensions of our homes become our main living spaces where we linger well into the evening hours, enjoying conversation, cocktails, and alfresco meals. In the May/June 2019 issue of Southern Home, we feature a number of homes with beautiful outdoor areas tailor-made for entertaining, as well as for quiet moments of solitude. Plus, discover the latest furnishings to design your own summer escape in the best place of all—right outside your door. Preview the issue here, then grab a copy of your own!
