Host Worthy

When it comes to decorating any new space — indoors our outdoors — consider its function, first and foremost. "I started the process with some very specific ideas as to how I wanted to use the space, so my design plan really came from those goals," explains Styles. "I envisioned how we live outdoors during the warmer months, so I wanted to leave open spaces for my kids to run around. To do this, I kept dining and lounging areas to either side of the courtyard, creating a great sense of flow when we host."
