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.
Glass panels on the deck railing allow for crystal-clear views of the backyard. A rattan, egg-shaped swing provides cozy, eclectic outdoor seating. Navy outdoor throw pillows serve as extra seating or a foot rest for the swing.
Gorgeous marbleized tile in blue and green hues covers the outside of this hot tub, which flows into the pool. The Mediterranean style exterior boasts stacked limestone walls, a second-story deck with a pergola and wrought iron deck railing.
Cozy, transitional style is carried outdoors with this colorful sitting area designed by Brian Patrick Flynn. The deck rail is dressed up by several baskets of flowers, while a bright blue rug adds color and comfort beneath the upholstered sectional.

Sure, a stained wood deck is nice, but treat it to a coat of black paint and the look becomes significantly more elegant. “Black is versatile and dramatic,” says designer Stephanie Wilson. “Here, the black decking and rail acts as a strong base for the white walls and window trim; the black French doors tie the decking and the walls together and adds a lovely element of symmetry.”
