reminds me of old indian houses built mandatorily with courtyards in the middle of the house....love them!
Pergola +Trellis + Tables. Simple and lovely, tables can be brought indoors. Pergola: add bunting or lights (instead of bougainvillea). Add a big pot plant.

Traditional Indian homes are typically decorated in rich colors, and intricate patterns. You will also find exotic textiles, and embroidered tapestry around the home. My favorite is a wooden swing which magically hangs in the living room.
