Glass walls disappear to connect interior rooms with the patio that stretches all along this home's outer edge. The ceiling's wood paneling visually joins the two spaces, making the difference between indoors and out even more seamless.
Sliding glass doors create a seamless transition to the screened-in porch and deck. This space was purposefully constructed by the architects to increase the home's usable floor plan by over 50% and give the owners another space to relax.
This cozy porch offers comfortable seating on a beige outdoor sofa accented with striped throw pillows. A gorgeous stained wood set features an armchair, foot rest and end table. The striped pattern is repeated on the chair cushions.
A round glass table is an ideal choice for small spaces because of its compact shape and its barely-there appearance. If you are looking for glassware, you often can find pieces at thrift shops run by charitable organizations for 50 cents or a dollar each, amassing a great collection for less than 10 dollars that is curated by you, says Michiel Perry, founder and curator of Black Southern Belle.
A concrete sidewalk leads from the driveway to the covered porch entry of this home. Frosted glass stripes create an attractive modern door against the white horizontal siding. The dark roof creates contrast against the bright home.
The ground-level patio area of the HGTV Dream Home 2013 features all-weather woven chairs that cozy up to a glass-topped table, ideal for both formal dinners or a table surface to focus on family craft projects.A makeshift chandelier of zinc hexagon-shaped lanterns illuminates the table top. The romance of candlelight elevates the dining experience in this casual gathering area.
