Italian Patio With Seating Area and Fireplace
This opulent patio space from designer Thomas Oppelt has arching entrances lined with bricks, exposed wood beams and outdoor brick fireplace. An ornate candle-holder forms a visual focal point on the fireplace mantel, and a seating area is highlighted by ornate light fixtures, comfortable outdoor chairs, ottoman and glass side table.
When actress Anne Heche and her husband asked Jamie Durie to create more shade in their too-hot backyard, he delivered with this house-length pergola fitted with adjustable Roman shades on the top and sides.
Entering this Mediterranean masterpiece, guests are greeted with a beautiful, marble spiral staircase that leads down into an open seating area complete with built-in alcoves to display fine artwork. Lit by a perfectly situated fireplace and a gorgeous glass chandelier, this cozy seating area s perfect for formal entertaining.
A tile fireplace surround wall shimmers in the light of decorative pendant lights in this moroccan style lounge. Large floor pillows bring bold, vibrant color to the room and create an cozy atmosphere. The “wood” flooring is actually of noce travertine, chosen for its ability to better withstand the Florida humidity and social traffic.
Mediterranean Kitchen with Custom Hood and Cooktop
Mediterranean charm exudes from this beautiful kitchen. It has every convenience a modern chef could hope for, including a built-in stainless cooktop and range hood with painted cabinetry. A mosaic tile backsplash features a decorative trim.
Dark, elegant details like the green velvet sofa and black leather dining chairs give this Spanish-style room a beautifully sophisticated look. The dark shades are brightened with luxurious golden pops of brass.
White columns pair with rustic wood beams for a Mediterranean-inspired pergola, while an Old World chandelier and cozy fire pit illuminates the space in the evenings. Teak furniture features comfortable navy cushions with white piping to reflect the overall style of the backyard.
Elaborate yet classic railing surrounds the balconies at this Mediterranean home. A colorful round table pairs with comfortable wicker armchairs for the perfect outdoor dining spot on Lake Lugano in Switzerland.
