AMY CHALMERS IS NO ARM­CHAIR DEC­O­RA­TOR.

Country Sampler's Upstyled Home - - LIVING IN OUTDOOR SPACES -

Her dreams lead to lit­er­ally mov­ing moun­tains and earth. As a lover of ev­ery­thing French, her house is al­ways un­der­go­ing im­prove­ments. A fas­ci­na­tion with French doors from her din­ing room to out­side nat­u­rally led to the need for a court­yard. En­ter her hus­band, Dave Chalmers, who, with an ex­ca­vat­ing com­pany and heavy equip­ment, was able to move her dream from a pile of rub­ble into a mag­nif­i­cent place to hang out and re­fresh. It may be the ul­ti­mate gar­den ren­o­va­tion.

Amy’s at­ten­tion to de­tail means fur­nish­ings are as care­fully ar­ranged as blocks of gran­ite. Lots of fur­ni­ture group­ings, up­cy­cled um­brel­las for shade, and pil­lows with a mono­gram de­note per­sonal style.

A place to sit and re­lax is lay­ered with Sun­brella fab­rics, which are cre­ated to en­dure sun­light and other out­door el­e­ments.
