Admit it. You wish you were sitting on this patio ushering in the twilight while sipping wine and carefully prepared aperitif. Anything but return to the reality of Monday. Tracking down the source of this lovely patio led me to Charleston based historic preservationist Olivia Brock and her blog, Lacquered Life. Olivia and her husband painstakingly returned their Single House back to it's 1780s roots removing decorative architecture and accessories in favor of period appropriate options. Read more about their renovation over on Southern Living. I'm in love with the kitchen, all the function of the 21st century concealed behind built-ins and plank walled charm.
