Well, this is just about the strangest thing ever! One of my Pinterest boards is full of broken links, and after some investigating, I discovered that the links lead to a post from way back in July 2012 that was never published. But I could have sworn...
In any case, today I'm bringing you back a year and a month to "A Roof with a View," because the photos are just too lovely to be left unpublished.
Circa July 5, 2012:
I hope everyone (stateside, at least) had a nice 4th of July holiday! Our laziness paid off, and Mr. Well-Appointed Catwalk and I were rewarded with a perfect view of the fireworks from our apartment window.
We did clandestinely climb to our building's rooftop before the rain began, but being officially off limits, our roof lacks a certain "je ne sais quois" in its black tar surface. I've heard that it originally held a swimming pool but that the grinches on the condo board had it filled in.
Black tar or no, it's hard to find a more perfect spot for fireworks viewing than a rooftop, but these amazing elevated spaces take picturesque to another level.

This little red and white oasis sits on the rooftop of an Atlanta loft. I can't get over the Greek key-patterned floor! It's amazing what a little paint and a chandelier can do, isn't it?
And, last but not least, there's this minimalist roof deck designed by Pamela Bestler. I can't find any information on its whereabouts, but I spy a daybed made of grass. I think that speaks for itself.
