The homeowners wanted an outdoor design that would meet the desires of their indoor-outdoor lifestyle, so designers included multiple seating areas with chaise lounges for taking in the sun, half-submerged loungers for cooling off in the shallow end of the pool, porch swings and an outdoor dining table for enjoying a meal al fresco.
This window design brings connection and functionality between the patio and living areas of the home. The large sliding window creates a dynamic space that can be opened up to accommodate more guests or just to enjoy the outdoors. The trees provide natural shade over a small patio and bamboo plants.
Designers were careful to blend the indoor and outdoor spaces by taking advantage of sight lines from the home's interior design. The plants in the front courtyard and the back yard can be seen from the living room, kitchen, bedroom and hallways. Here, a sculptural cactus provides a backdrop for art inside the home.
Outdoor lights strung across the backyard of this stately home give the space its "wow factor" and add a festive ambiance. Ample windows and terraces connect the house to the backyard and brings the indoor and outdoor spaces together.
This modern living space is configured as one uninterrupted indoor-outdoor space. These public spaces open immediately to the pool and backyard living areas by means of sliding glass panels that fully disappear.
Festive lighting and ample seating make this traditional backyard pool a fantastic spot to entertain. Seating is grouped into zones for conversation, dining and poolside lounging. Ample terraces connect the indoor and outdoor spaces and give the home great views of its retreat-like backyard.
The window wall of this contemporary bedroom slides back to open up the space to the gracious backyard, making a perfectly stylish example of indoor outdoor living. Furnishings are kept simple for a clutter-free feel.
