Our screened in patio tends to evolve with the seasons. In the Summertime we leave it pretty open and uncluttered to accommodate pool guests and impromptu dance parties. In the Spring, it often becomes a landing pad for a cold beer and clothes shed while working around the yard. It gets a soft glow from lights and candles in the Winter, but I really think it's in its glory when blanketed with the Fall light that pours in through the screens each afternoon from the West.
We had our first bought of Santa Ana winds blow through last week, telling me it was time to pack away some of the patio furniture around the pool's perimeter. I wanted to make good use of the table and chairs we recently renovated and so I pulled them into the covered patio and created a Fall centerpiece using the pumpkins I recently decorated using my favorite wallpaper pattern for inspiration.
The classic stripes are holding up well on the banquet. I'm glad we went with this all-season pattern. It feels fresh and light during warmer months, but just cozy enough to weather this time of year as well.
