Bringing the outside in is a highly-used decorating concept and has been for ages, but designer Dorothee Schumacher takes it to a whole new and über cool level. It helps to have a sun room that looks more like a greenhouse. : )

Originally, I wanted to ask you about plants: how many you have in your home and which ones bring you the most happiness and which ones survive even the blackest of thumbs. But, honestly? I really want to talk about Dorothee’s miniature horse! Now that is bringing the outside in!

Do you have pets? Are they allowed in the house? On the furniture? Kitchen counter-tops? In your bed? Tell me everything! I’m so curious!
