design plan: my perfect patio

i recently completed an e-design plan for a patio, which really got me thinking about
my own outdoor space. we furnished our patio about 7 years ago, and the patio furniture is
definitely showing it's age. the cushions are totally worn out, and i am having a hard  time
deciding whether i should get them reupholstered or just start over again. and, of course,
all of that led to me daydreaming about my perfect outdoor space...what i would do if
i had a much larger space and budget....a pergola is a must! i would love to see the
edges softened with some simple curtains, and urns filled with herbs. next up would be a
cozy seating area packed with colorful pillows and anchored with a graphic outdoor rug.
ahhh...i can almost smell the grill going and the music playing...
