My Current Casa, "After" pictures of the Outdoor Room

This is one of my favorite rooms in the house.  The room with only two walls...
It is a great room for entertaining, for hanging out and just being together.

I love this Indonesian Teak bed.  We've never used it for sleeping but have
used it as a sofa on many occasions.  It's comfy and a great conversation piece.

 The curtains are draped around the open arches of the terrace.  After attempting different fabrics out there, I have come to the conclusion that the sheer, cotton curtains from Ikea are the best fit for this area.  If they get wet, they dry quickly and don't get mold stains like thicker fabrics might.  They also look beautiful blowing in the wind.

We moved the Foosball table out from the playroom because it wasn't getting any use there.
  Now children play with this all the time.

Our baby Coco up to her antics.  She's walking on a wicker storage basket.
We have many furniture pieces here and its not by choice. 
I would prefer to have less furniture in every room of the house.  I inherited some pieces from my mother and others from a vacation rental we redecorated .  They are all in good condition, and I hope to purchase another vacation property where I can put them all in the near future.  Meanwhile, we keep them here, safe from the dangers of the sun and the rain.

The armoire holds a tv set and small refrigerator with water and other drinks.  We also have sunblock and insect repellent, etc. stored in there.
