When the weather warms is when you're supposed to be looking forward to spending as much time outside as humanly possible, right? Looking forward to dining al fresco and pool parties and seeing movies outdoors; walking the dog or planning a picnic is a new joy. We feel that way too, though this week's focus is kind of the opposite. See, everyone's posting a lot of great home-focused stuff––stuff that's giving us the major urge to nest and secretly hibernate. Though we will certainly remember to head outside this summer, admiring the awesome set-ups of others isn't exactly a crime, right?
