Inspired by a visit to a Native American pueblo, Jamie Durie designed this circular adobe outdoor room. A traditional drying rack serves as an artistic shade structure over the new outdoor dining area.
An Ipe wood shade structure was attached to custom rolled steel columns and joists in this industrial-style backyard to create a unique arbor. Creative furniture and a fire pit add personality to the pool area.
The homeowners wanted a place to spend time together and entertain that could be used for all seasons in Colorado. The fireplace and infrared heaters provide warmth on cool nights, and the shade structure and ceiling fans provide comfort on warm evenings.
Nothing says "party-ready" quite like this outdoor retreat complete with a swimming pool, full kitchen, fire table, dining table, lounging area, aluminum shade structure and flat-screen TV. Day or night, this space is the ideal setting for friends and family to gather.
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.
At night, bistro lights and a working fireplace cast an enchanting glow across this chic dining space. With a table set for six, the owners and their guests can enjoy dinner al fresco and then head to the fire pit for drinks.
A built-in, oversize umbrella offers shade above a modern ipe wood deck in this California backyard. The pool and hot tub are surrounded by planes of white concrete, and a cable rail system continues the space's clean horizontal lines.
Log slice pavers create a rustic walkway through this beautiful garden. A pergola structure provides a bit of shade for the raised garden below, but also serves as the wall for a vertical garden to maximize space.
Warm shades of brown and tan pair with a toasty fire to create a comfortable, inviting atmosphere in this sitting room. The fireplace's clean-lined structure and the bench's sleek curves establish a contemporary aesthetic.
