"The Oregon Women's Report" carries Outdoor Living Spaces On A Budget by Erika Weisensee in which the author lays out some affordable ways to make your outdoor space more livable. I especially liked this tip:
• Have a focal point for your outdoor living space. Larger focal points might include a fire pit, or colorful shade umbrella, while smaller (and less expensive) ones might be a pot of showy flowers or a cool lantern.
While we're on the subject of outdoor furniture, I came across Andreu World which is introducing a very nice outdoor furniture collection.
