Every kid needs a place to just be. To be safe. To be loved. To simply be a kid.
The KidSanctuary Campus in Palm Beach County, Florida, offers exactly that — a place where the most vulnerable kids in the foster care system can thrive.

It’s summertime here in the States and that means living spaces are expanding. Whether you have a porch, patio, veranda, or a lanai, these multi-functional, outdoor living areas get a workout with parties, dinners, lounging, and even sleeping.
Summertime also brings bugs, especially in the South where interior designer Alys Protzman lives.
