Every year, we look forward to the unveiling of the Southern Living Idea House, and this one was no exception. Of course we were delighted to see our outdoor furniture on the porch and patio, so we sat down with Margaret Kirkland to hear all about her inspiration for the space. She used pieces from Suzanne Kasler’s Directoire Collection, as well as our Sunday Porch Swing. In the video above she shares her inspiration!
