Swimming Pool and Hot Tub With Stone Statuary Fountains
Statues of three woman become makeshift water carriers, as water pours from the stone urns they hold into the swimming pool and spa below them. Two fire pits are on either side of the hot tub, while the pool itself has an adjacent poolside patio.
Outdoor Lounge With Diagonal Wooden Beam Structure
The elevated, diagonal ridge beam that projects out on the leading edge of the wooden structure posed a challenge for the design team. Custom steel connections and careful planning made the outdoor layout successful in creating a cozy lounge for the homeowners and their guests to enjoy.
The main focus of the design was the infinity pool. It was positioned so the infinity edge faces the largest view of the lake. The designer created a large, lounging patio for big parties as well as a lower patio for drinks and cigars. The unique water feature with plants breaks up and softens the extensive hardscaping.
A Knotted Melati Hanging Chair from Anthropologie creates a cozy sitting nook on this patio. A matching Fermob bar cart provides a convenient spot to store beach towels, including these by Marimekko, or beverages and snacks to guarantee fun in the sun.
Contemporary Covered Patio With Eye-Catching Infinity Pool
This stunning backyard features a covered patio with a poolside sitting area. Cozy outdoor furniture surrounds a fire pit, while an infinity pool leads the way to a panoramic view, creating the ideal entertainment space.
This vertical garden offers a contemporary spin on the more traditional garden wall. The oversized, textured medallion serves as a focal point, though plants in a mixture of textures, colors and shapes draw the eye onward, and raised redwood beds ground the space.
The backyard is a delightful space to hang out, linger while the gas fire pit with crystal pieces glows. The sofas from the Oskar Collection helps to define the space while bringing the inside out and the outside in.
Courtyard With Lush Landscaping and Bistro Dining Set
Lush green landscaping surrounds this outdoor dining space with bright green and deep purple hues, creating an enchanting garden space. A small dining set provides space for entertaining just outside a dark teal door and window for a cozy, cafe-style experience.
The geometric design of this water and fire feature aligns with the architectural character of the home. The home blends seamlessly to the outdoors with its myriad of glass window walls, which is why this feature is designed to be dynamic from multiple angles and vantage points. A rain chain directs water from the second level of the home to the lower level basin.
A black wicker sectional with a matching coffee table sets the tone for relaxation on this stylish patio. Green and white nautical patterned pillows pad the sofa. A textured planter mounted to the wall creates a vertical garden, and a beer basket keeps refreshments readily available.
