This composite deck from Fiberon features a darker inlay pattern that defines the outdoor dining area, the same way an outdoor rug would. Accessories provide pops of color to contrast the Fiberon Horizon Dark Walnut composite railing, matching post-sleeve lighting and round black balusters.
Not every deck party needs to happen during the day. With the right deck lighting – think side posts and post caps as well as riser lighting on the stairs for safety – you can create a warm, inviting atmosphere that’s perfect for an adults-only cocktail party or movies and s’mores for the kids.
Located in Encinitas, Calif., the home is perched on prime waterfront property with incredible views of the Pacific coastline. An upper and lower seawall gives added protection to the house, which also includes a three-car garage.

A pair of black mesh chairs, a white lounge chair and a hammock hung between support beams create several places to enjoy the relaxing view available on this contemporary deck. Cedar siding adds beautiful color to the natural surroundings and a cable railing keeps the space feeling open.
