1. Give it home-like elements. There's everything to love about this outdoor room: The obvious "doorway" through which one enters (complete with a stone mosaic "area rug" at the threshold), the steps that ascend to a welcoming outdoor room, the presence of aromatic lavender to stimulate sensory memories, the shelter of a roof overhead and the warmth of the fire in the hearth. Exquisitely appointed, this garden has a distinctive point of view. Once you settle in, leaving would be unthinkable!
