Stacked stone brings beautiful design and texture moving around three sides of this fireplace from mantel to hearth. The built in stone frames the smaller panel fireplace surround with a smoky brown and black finish.

Sunlight and the overflow of water have a beautifully reflective quality over the iridescent tile on this inviting hot tub.

With a corrugated metal roof and large cutouts, this outdoor lounge offers shelter from the afternoon sun and encourages cool breezes. Throw pillows and an area rug in soft, neutral hues help showcase the subtle texture of the structure itself: the brushed concrete, the beams radiating from the built-in fireplace and the unique pattern of the tile flooring.
The ceiling over this covered outdoor living room features dark wood exposed beams that create a bold contrast against the light neutral structure.
