8. Less is often much, much more. The word "uncluttered" comes to mind for this grassy nook. One Ali Baba–scale urn plus one simple, striped awning chair, and all of a sudden the space has a point of view.The urn feels permanent, anchoring the base of a tree trunk. The chair is less so, but that's part of its charm. Plunked down here for a moment, the chair turns a lush, tropical setting into a room — something to be visited and occupied, rather than just observed. (Imagine an outdoor dining table plus six chairs instead and you'll see what I mean. They would dominate the space, making it impossible to view the plantings). I like to imagine having this space all to myself, thank you very much!
