Some of my happiest memories in L.A. (and Palm Springs!) have been made around backyard outdoor fire-pits. Laughing with friends, cuddling up after dark, welcoming passing neighbors to join us. I love them and dream of adding one to my backyard. While it probably won’t happen this year, it doesn’t hurt to plan ahead!

Free-standing or built in they can really add to the architecture of your home. Of course, I’m attracted to modern designs and, it turns out, there are a lot to choose from.
