Your guests will never want to leave this expansive patio area. Soaking up the sun in a contemporary lounge chair or enjoying a meal at the outdoor dining table will have you hoping for an endless summer. The wood pergola provides an enclosed intimacy while still allowing light and nature in.
A garage was opened up and turned into a lounge that will easily accommodate the homeowner's large family, as seen on The Outdoor Room by Jamie Durie on HGTV. In one direction, you see the relaxing outdoor dining area and in the other direction you see into the garden toward the hot tub and deck.
This deck has an outdoor kitchen complete with a bar and living room with furniture that will survive the elements. Use durable materials like redwood, stone furniture and outdoor pillows to ensure your outdoor entertaining space holds up to the weather.
While staying true to the architecture of the house, modern design elements were incorporated as well. The barbecue enclosure is veneered with limestone in a subway tile cut, while a trellis added to the garage adds shade over the outdoor kitchen area. Due to the limited space of the backyard, the original backyard did not provide adequate lounging space for the homeowners. A dry deck is added within the pool perimeter, using lightweight blocks to ensure no unnecessary weight was put on the existing gunite shell.
Oversized lounge chairs provide a perfect spot to enjoy both the poolside atmosphere and the view at this waterfront Newport Beach, California, home. Sophisticated city living meets the comfort and casualness of beachside relaxation in this 12,710-square-foot new build on the bay.
White cedar fencing provides a buffer of privacy in the yard, where all-weather stackable chaises, fashioned from a material that incorporates post-consumer bottle waste, provide a sunbathing area. The family pet can grab some shade in the cushioned dog house.
The various outdoor living areas provide ample room for entertaining and unwinding. This deck is the perfect place for watching the sunset. Contemporary furniture throughout creates a relaxed atmosphere for dining and lounging.
This contemporary home seamlessly blends indoors and out. The chic living room completely opens up to a covered outdoor seating area. A black-and-white palette give the rooms a modern, sophisticated feeling.
