Outdoor Living, New York Style

As much as I heart NY, the lack of private green space was one of the issues that sent me packing for hometown Georgia. However, it looks like Charlotte Moss has the right idea for her own New York townhouse above.

I am especially digging the teal, chevron-slatted chairs. Now that I am back in the South, I can see Chinese fans from Pearl River Mart making useful dinner party favors on a hot summer night.

For more Moss musings on entertaining and the merits of the outdoor fireplace, see New York Magazine's "Hyper Design" Issue or her latest book, A Flair for Living.

It is a great space - and to have outdoor space in NY is a major.

I'm so intrigued by the idea of a true outdoor dinner party, but the thought of the mosquitos.... this setting looks so incredibly inviting and elegant, though, that trying to replicate it my overcome my phobias.
