Beneath Starry SkiesMediterranean Patio, San Francisco

Is there anything more fun than outdoor entertaining? The house, patio and lawn all flow together to create one seamless space that appears to go forever. Here we worked to create the kind of atmosphere you find in an Italian Piazza with the outdoor market lights strung from the house to the tree and speakers hidden in strategic locations filling the air with music.

    Actually those are bricks. McNear red wirecut bricks in a herringbone pattern. Very old, very traditional, very durable!

    The table is from Smith and Hawken - a brand that was purchased by Target years ago, but the quality isn't what it once was. You can find something similar from Country Casual Teak. The chairs are by OW Lee, a brand carried by most outdoor furniture retail outlets.

    It's a custom stain. The color is the result of a 5 step process. I don't have the exact details.

    I'm sorry, I'm not the architect and am not in possession of the plans. Interior shots are coming soon.

    The house color is Benjamin Moore #904 - White blush (low luster). The windows and doors are a custom stain process over western red cedar.

Mitchell Parker added this to The Polite House: Considerations for Hosting a Housewarming PartyNov 18, 2016

Congratulations! What a fun time for you and your partner as you settle into your new house and get to know your new neighborhood. I’m glad to hear that your first introductions to your new neighbors have gone well, and it’s so great as the new “kid” on the block to have the confidence to introduce yourself to more established neighbors. In regard to your two questions, I have a few thoughts that may help clarify the nature of a housewarming party and help you to proceed. A housewarming is supposed to be just that: a party to warm the house with friends and family so that a new place doesn’t seem, well, quite so new, unfamiliar and cold. It’s amazing how the “strangeness” of an environment is replaced with the feeling of “home” once we have spent a little time with our friends and family in our new space. Naturally, it would make more sense to have your guest list for this party contain your closest friends and family in the area. Depending on how long you’ve lived in your area, this may be a very large group or a smaller, more intimate circle. This party is also a great way to invite new neighbors to get to know you a bit better and to establish yourself as a friendly and welcoming neighbor.
