A plush beanbag chair and bookshelf that's easy for little hands to reach make this reading corner an instant hit. The colorful furnishings as well as the toys and books themselves brighten up the space with a rainbow array.
This house had expansion restrictions because of its proximity to Minnesota's Lake Elmo. To make a larger patio space, designers cleverly worked around the limits by installing a custom pergola frame with a louvered roof and vinyl wall panels.
The homeowners of this Lake Elmo residence wanted more out of their outdoor space, but couldn't build any closer to the water due to land use regulations. A larger patio and unique pergola offered the perfect solution. The pergola has a louvered roof and lowerable clear wall panels making the space usable in different weather.
