Simple Sitting Area

Just enough room for tea for two.

French Country owner Vi Jull bought this 1875 Picton home on a whim, and hasn't looked back. Following a partial reno and an overhaul of the garden, the new home was perfect for her relocation from Toronto. A new flagstone patio and pergola-topped deck evoke a French courtyard, and is the perfect spot to dine à deux. Extra-wide stairs make the deck seem larger than it is, and Vi chose airy furniture that wouldn't overcrowd the patio.
