The bluestone patio leads from the indoor space onto the outdoor covered cabana and beyond, providing the foundation for the outdoor dining space and bordering the pool area, creating an elegant, complementary addition to the original portion of the home.
The property, located on the Thousand Islands in Clayton New York, overlooks the St. Lawrence River. Local stone was used throughout the landscape design; this patio was made from Lilac Bluestone pavers.
To carry the farmhouse aesthetic outdoors, designers used a roughly-cut stone table and rush-back-and-seat chairs for the outdoor dining area. Bluestone for the patio and the cool tint of the dining room windows extends the blue color scheme outside.
Leading from the indoor space with the backlit onyx bar, a blue stone patio extends under the covered cabana, but also around the pool and spa area, creating a cohesive indoor/outdoor entertaining space.
Lounge chairs are arranged to take advantage of the beautiful mountain and meadow views. A sleek, contemporary pool surrounded by a bluestone patio contrasts against the rustic barn that acts as an entertaining space.
This bluestone patio is equally prepared to handle formal gatherings and family fun. A ping pong table sits in the middle of a wide open space between dining area and fireplace lounge. Bluestone pavers continue the look over to the pool.
Designer Heather Lashbrook Jones of a Blade of Grass Landscape Design suggests prioritizing areas that will be seen the most. From their back windows, the homeowners overlook a lovely bluestone patio so low stacked stone walls serve as a wow factor that define the outdoor living and dining areas. To cozy up the seating area, a custom outdoor fireplace was constructed using American and Corinthian granite.
A bluestone patio extends throughout this outdoor living area featuring a kitchen with bar seating, pergola covered dining room and covered living room. Brown iron bar chairs create a countertop eating space at the kitchen area with shade available from neutral stranding umbrellas. The thick tree line provides natural color to the design.
