Nothing is better than a warm night and a cool patio. This week we are celebrating the weather warming with everything Patio: the sacred space where indoor meets outdoor. Thoughts of BBQs, beach days, and hot nights bouncing are buzzing around in our heads. Whether you're curled up with a good book and a spicy kombucha, or cracking open a summer beer with friends. Enjoy our visual tour of the best patios we could find, as well as our Local Patio Companion Guide: A playlist of local musicians, landscapers, and drinks to enjoy on your outdoor haven.

Does your patio need a serious makeover? If so, Lisa Gimmy Landscape Architecture can give your space a whole new life. This Mid Century Modern inspired exterior design was masterfully done by her team and is our highlighted local designer  of the week. Photography by Jack Coyier


Lisa Gimmy and their team perfectly matched this Mid Century Home with an equally beautiful Mid Century patio. The same patio as the above picture that glows in the sunlight is now a low-lit soothing dinner spot. Photography by Jack Coyier

The Guest House

This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice.
meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.
