The outdoor living room is anchored by a large, double sided, white masonry fireplace that is a nod to the walls of the home and the retaining walls in the front and backyards. With luxurious, outdoor furniture, a television and a wood ceiling, this outdoor space is cozy, warm and welcoming-the perfect space for an outdoor gathering.
A comfortable wicker sofa is situated by the fireplace for snuggling up on cool nights, while a cushioned swing is situated by a large opening for enjoying the breeze on warm afternoons. A rustic dining table with matching benches offers a place for casual outdoor dining.
Each of this deck's separate areas are represented through a clever mix of outdoor drapery panels, indoor-outdoor rugs and functional furniture placement. To keep everything cohesive, the same hues are used throughout, including in this outdoor living room.
Embellished with walls of glass and a dramatic open plan to accentuate its extraordinary beachfront placement, a calming impression permeates the main estate, adorned with a modern French motif and striking Polynesian touches. The living room provides plush seating areas that are perfect for cozying up by the fire.

Found objects are an eye-catching alternative to artwork above a mantel. You can replicate this look by layering discs, made of wood or metal, that you find new at discount home decor stores or while rummaging through items at thrift stops, says Donna Mathis with Haven Design Works. Look for ones with different sizes, which also can save money, instead of buying three large discs.
This family room, designed by Barry Dixon, calls on rustic touches to make the room a cozy gathering place. It features salvaged exposed beams, a two-story stone fireplace and a large wrought iron chandelier.
