Since I was little, I have wanted a courtyard in the middle of my house. I used to draw little houseplans that had all the rooms oriented around an interior courtyard. However, the reality is that I live in the Midwest, and an interior courtyard might not be so usable in the winter.
These pictures got me thinking about the concept again...
Wouldn't it be nice to lie here and read a book with the sound of the water fountain behind you and all those plants around you? I love the floor too!
An interior courtyard is a very good reason for living in a temperate climate!
