Remember how last year I spent ages trying to find affordable brightly-coloured sun umbrellas and lounger cushions for the deck and then had to settle for white umbrellas and red cushions because everything else was SO boring?
Our deck in happier times
I was obviously a year ahead of my time, as these are some of the options now available from Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware. Grrrrrrr! I love those stripy brollies particularly, but can’t remotely justify replacing our boring old white ones.
I don’t actually know why I’m worrying about the deck, as we’re currently experiencing monsoon-type conditions here in Seattle and I am spending all my time under an umbrella of a very different kind.
