Coming upon Emily Bishop's design work on the deck and patio at the design house was timely. After touring the entire home, my friends and I convened on the lovely outdoor furniture by Brown Jordan. At which time we had the opportunity to meet Ms. Bishop herself and take in all the scenery while we absorbed the restfulness of the setting.

To me, that is what a haven is all about. Living on the inside, temporarily forgetting what's nearby. It's a nice escape.
