Chez J Affordable Patio Decor Project

As a designer, I’m very sensitive to my surroundings at home.  I need to feel both comfortable and happy with my space.

For the first four years I lived in my suburban San Diego townhouse, aka Chez J, my patio was a small empty rectangle.  It wasn’t an eyesore; it just wasn’t inspiring.  Every time I’d walk up to my front door, it would mock me with its emptiness.

OK, this is a bit tongue-in-cheek, but stay with me please as there is some helpful info in these points.  I promise!  I have some solid expertise in both design and modern dating.  I’ve been involved with design professionally for 11 years and 21st Century dating for more than two.  Here are the similarities I see, and a few notable differences:
