Patio Umbrellas


Hello from Dallas! I’m Shelly of Shelly Rosenberg Studio, and as an interior designer I’m very excited to be a new design contributor here on Sarah Sarna! I’ll be sharing my curated home decor favorites with y’all every month, through the end of the year.


We long for summer, most of the year. We just yearn for those sunny, carefree days, don’t we? It’s always an indulgence to gain that youthful, rosy glow, but we must remember our #1 beauty rule: protect your skin from the sun! There isn’t a more sophisticated way than perching ourselves under a lovely patio umbrella. In fact, we’ve been doing it for thousands of years. The word, itself, comes from the Latin root, umbra, meaning shade. These little beauties are perfect poolside companions. Add good friends, nibbles–a cold cocktail? And you’re made in the shade.
