The homeowners wanted an outdoor design that would meet the desires of their indoor-outdoor lifestyle, so designers included multiple seating areas with chaise lounges for taking in the sun, half-submerged loungers for cooling off in the shallow end of the pool, porch swings and an outdoor dining table for enjoying a meal al fresco.
No need to move the party inside when this amazing courtyard is available. The planter retaining walls and cozy furniture make this space one with nature and perfect for entertaining and relaxing outside.
This neutral backyard features an outdoor living room with comfy wicker furniture and a wood coffee table. The stone tiled deck extends to an ivy-strewn, contemporary pergola that covers a long dining table.
A pair of curved, outdoor sofas add an outdoor living space to the patio at the rear of the home. This space is the perfect place for an intimate gathering of friends or the enjoyment of a warm cup of coffee in the morning.
HGTV Design Star contestant Trent Hultgren brought the indoors out with this coastal outdoor living room. Perfect for entertaining guests or relaxing solo with a good book, this space dons a comfy sling chair and weather resistant sofa.
The shed-style art studio has two sliding glass door entries and clerestory windows to maximize the natural light entering the space. Square concrete paver walkways with Mexican pebble joints connect the studio with the house, fire pit area and concrete patio. Pea gravel makes for a clean and budget-friendly mulch material.
This window design brings connection and functionality between the patio and living areas of the home. The large sliding window creates a dynamic space that can be opened up to accommodate more guests or just to enjoy the outdoors. The trees provide natural shade over a small patio and bamboo plants.
The smooth neutral exterior design of this home is given a two-tone effect with an accent wood panel on the upper half of the house. Meeting the wood panel in the center of the wall is a small balcony. On the ground, a patio space creates a base for a cozy outdoor living room complete with fireplace. From the patio the space transitions to the open, bright backyard.
