I rent a 2 bdrm townhouse, I have 2 children under 8. I need some tips on how to create a calming sitting area for myself outside my back door. There is virtually no room for large pieces, but there is room for two chairs and a cafe table. My questions are geared towards lighting, (other than the light above the back door), potted plant ideas, or anything else to make my outdoor area different than the department store flyers!! I am artsy, and like to be original. Colour is a must!!The area is not too close to traffic or children's toys. Privacy is an issue as the building is a "U" shape and i have 7 other neighbours looking out their kitchen windows at me when I do sit outside!!
