Finding Forever in the Fleeting WHERE YOU CAN BE BOTH OVER THE MOON AND BENEATH THE STARS AT THE SAME TIME

BY BETHANY

Nestled on a quiet street, a gaze out our windows will reveal nothing but cornfields— if you’re lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of vintage planes flying overhead. But more impressive than the view from inside is the view from the patio. As a family that spends a lot of time outdoors, having a communal space to soak in the sun and get the most out of our fleeting Canadian summers truly makes us feel like we live on a luxurious retreat—no passports required! The island-inspired sectional 12

offers a moment of pause before the start of a hectic day, and the Jonathan Outdoor daybed transforms from an afternoon reading (and subsequent napping) spot to an evening snuggle nook under the stars. We once considered this fixer-upper a temporary home, but whether it’s the transformation of the patio or a shift in perspective from the family living under its roof, it’s slowly become the perfect destination for raising our adventure-seeking family.
