It is supposed to get to 100 degrees in DC today and I have an outdoor concert - Diana Krall - tonight at Wolf Trap. I think I would rather be on this lovely patio by Philadelphia interior designer Leslie Hayes. I adore the color scheme of blue and white with punches of orange and those fabulous vintage Greek key patio chairs. The cocktail table is pure genius - three blue and white Chinese garden stools topped with glass. This would also work indoors and might also be great with two garden stools and a rectangular piece of glass. I think I would ditch that Liberace candelabra, the ugly potted plant and that crab - this is probably on the Main Line, not the beach, but the rest of it is wonderful.
I grew up in Europe and Lake Forest, Illinois. After graduating from The Ferry Hall School, Bryn Mawr College, and George Washington University Law School, I practiced law in Washington, D.C. Now I am devoting my time to three of my great passions - interior design, blogging, and Chinoiserie.
