Not every deck party needs to happen during the day. With the right deck lighting – think side posts and post caps as well as riser lighting on the stairs for safety – you can create a warm, inviting atmosphere that’s perfect for an adults-only cocktail party or movies and s’mores for the kids.
Outdoor seating surrounds an infinity pool and spa in this oceanfront oasis by designer Madelyn Simon. Low hedges provide a level of privacy around the stone deck without obstructing the spectacular view.

Using black as an accent color on the exterior helps draw attention to architectural details like windows, doors, and trim, and, as the team at Awad + Koontz Architects Builders notes, “gives a modern touch to a traditional home.”
The back patio with a fireplace and pergola is surrounded by dense landscape to give the space an enclosed feeling. This area of the backyard is great in every season. The fireplace adds an element of warmth in the cooler months.
