If you're like us, you're not quite ready to let go of summer quite yet. We're desperate to cling tightly onto the last rays of sunshine so this week, we're loving these beautiful courtyards. We love natural light and integrating the outdoors with architecture, For us, especially in Seattle, any glimpse of sun is something to celebrate and a beautifully designed courtyard makes it easy.
