“When people are outside, the beautiful teak and the cushions become the background for people and their dressed up clothes and their food and wine,” says Linda. “I like that kind of approach to outside, because you’re also looking at landscaping and the sky. The furniture is beautiful and durable, and it works in this area of the world. You want it to always look good and really be comfortable.”
This beautiful patio features a central fountain surrounded by bluestone pavers. Brick bands help define different sections. Gracefully wide steps lead down from the kitchen; the original door was widened to allow for a more seamless transition from indoors out.
Tracy Morris Design brought the luxury resort experience to this Florida backyard. The pergola represents the client's travels to Turks and Caicos, with teak furniture to match. The white fabric used is both attractive and functional and the upholstery is soft with an absorbent core for quick drying. The furniture is positioned at various points on the slate patio to overlook the sparkling swimming pool.
After a day of romping around on the island, children can enjoy a private outdoor space to unwind. Teak lounge chairs with turquoise cushions and a pink throw blanket bring the cheerful theme of the kids’ room outside.
The homeowners, guests and pets can relax on outdoor furniture accented by throw pillows within the shady seclusion of a tall, wood privacy fence. The homeowner had a vision for transforming the space, which was already partially enclosed by a fence and concrete wall, into an outdoor courtyard for entertaining on warm summer evenings.
Comfortable teak furniture with soft blue cushions reflect the Mediterranean-inspired water feature. The fountain adds soothing background sound, while space heaters keep the space warm even in cooler weather.
The eco-friendly courtyard, constructed of permeable pavers and enclosed by picket fencing, accommodates both social gatherings and intimate family dinners at the HGTV Green Home 2010. Teak wood furniture provides chic seating for the space.
Bistro lights are the finishing touch on this modern courtyard, illuminating the wood furniture, bluestone paving with pebble accents, crushed granite and rustic container. Drought-tolerant plants surround the patio, adding a flair of green to complete the space.
Bluestone paving with pebble accents, crushed granite and cedar fencing work together to transform what was previously an RV parking space into a modern courtyard. The lines of the furniture mimic the lines of the cedar fencing.
