(and calling it eclectic doesn't help.)...

    I love how our piece of the world experiences the full range of seasons. Spring, summer, autumn, winter -- each has its own unique beauty. It gives us an indoor-outdoor, best-of-both-worlds frame of mind that we celebrate in this issue. Whether it's leaving your floor-to-ceiling windows bare to let in all the natural light, decorating with an armful of flowering branches from the backyard or whipping up easy recipes to enjoy alfresco, we can't get enough of the promise of the season.
