Pergolas are a good way to ease transition from house to other hardscape amenities -- here, both pool and outdoor kitchen (in the background) received a shading structure. Space the pergola's roof boards as needed to shield the sun (this one relies on closeness to offer more shade).
With colorful dishes and serveware, you’ll always be ready for spring and summer entertaining. Wooden serve boards like these are perfect for cheese plates and the ceramic fish-shaped plate is so seasonally fun. Patterned terracotta small bowls and plates are appetizer-ready and a vibrant, finishing touch to your tabletop.
