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.
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.
Gorgeous established trees surround this Mediterranean backyard to provide shade and privacy. Terracotta roof tiles mix with a stucco exterior and wood-framed windows and French doors for an Old World-inspired home.
Easy living is made even easier on this gorgeous Mediterranean patio. A long rustic trestle table provides ample room for guests, and the patterned tiles underfoot mean the floor is just as compelling as the surroundings.
Lanai: Italian Vineyard Estate in Vacaville, Calif.
With stately columns, grand arches and sweeping California views, this Italian-style lanai is luxury at its finest. Contemporary outdoor furniture creates a comfortable seating area for relaxing with family and friends.
From the water, the view of this 18,000-square-foot Miami Beach estate is pristine and spectacular. An arched portico runs along the rear central wing of the home, which was built in 1937 in the Mediterranean Revival style. The property has undergone an extensive renovation to turn it into a great space for modern living and entertaining.
