The overarching theme to the summer edition of HOME is “friendship and fun.” Isn’t that what summer is all about? Making new friends. Laughing. Whiling away a lazy afternoon on a porch.

We’ve got all the necessary ingredients to help you create an at-home paradise.

Have a little shady spot in your yard? Plant a shade garden and create your new favorite place to read or bird watch. Learn how to ease the transition points between inside and outside, virtually doubling your entertaining space, so your guests will flow seamlessly throughout your next party. And, we’ll even help you plan the menu with some fresh new recipes using lemons.

We’d love to hear from you! Please email or visit our Facebook page to share photos and stories of your summertime adventures.

Your friends at HOME,
