House Home May 2012 Magazine Breezy Style

Blur the lines between indoors and out with decorating tips for seamless spaces. It's the time of year we throw open our windows, pull out patio furniture and enjoy light, breezy decor inside and comfortable living outside. Suzanne Dimma writes about trends in bathrooms — including large picture windows, private decks and outdoor showers — that make everyday spaces more like spas. Browse photos of TV host Marilyn Denis's serene Toronto home, including her private backyard for entertaining. Plus, draw inspiration from a Dominican home-away-from-home, complete with indigenous stone walls, open-air rooms and a lush courtyard with pool. Senior design editor Margot Austin shows us how to block-print linens for a relaxed, boho tablescape while Amy Rosen reveals easy-to-make recipes for top Asian take-out dishes.
