The contemporary coffee cafe is designed for the Scottsdale Area Association of REALTORS® headquarters, Venue8600. A wood bar is paired with sleek white countertops and white and yellow barstools. Cool pendant lights hang above the bar, and a comfortable lounge area is the perfect spot to meet with clients or take a break.
This contemporary family room-kitchen combo gets its interest from layered texture and pops of bright color in artwork and accessories. A suspended track light fixture tops the modern dining table, dividing the space and creating distinct areas for lounging, cooking and dining. A large, contemporary modular sofa offers plenty of seating for family and friends.
This beautiful, split-level backyard has something for every occasion.

No matter where you live, there's no denying that the summer sun can sometimes feel relentless. Make your front porch into a relaxing oasis by rolling out a serving cart when guests arrive. Ice cold lemonade (or bubbly!) makes lounging on the porch feel like a mini vacay.
A pergola cover lets fresh air wash over this extravagant poolside seating set up while privacy curtains allow the space to be closed off at will.

A large lantern illuminates the space to transition the lounge into the evening.
This picturesque backyard area features an outdoor dining space with a wooden pergola positioned over a table and chairs. An inground pool is flanked by two wooden lounge chairs, while lush greenery finishes off the look of the space.

Inspired by the idea of a well-traveled woman, this dressing room pairs a glamorous Victorian-style bench with two Chinese ceramic vases. The result is an elegant yet eclectic seat on which to lounge before getting ready for a night on the town. Two floor-to-ceiling armoires ensure that the lady of the house has many outfits to choose from.
A traditional Persian rug, large-scale modern artwork and a wood-paneled wall give this open, airy family room a homey, transitional feel. A mod sectional sofa offers plenty of seating for guests, while an Eames lounge chair takes advantage of the view and natural light offered by a wall of windows.
A large vaulted pergola extends off the back of the house, sheltering a lounge area and an outdoor kitchen. The pergola's wood beams and high ceiling make the space have a light, open feel that transitions well into the rest of the yard.

Curl up with a good book beside the fireplace in this neutral penthouse living space. Modern wood panels provide a beautiful, warm accent around the gas fireplace and large framed art. Two neutral, cushioned sofas and a leather lounge share a chunky wooden coffee table. This luxe living space provides every spot in the room with a stunning city view.
Enjoy al fresco dining on this elevated, lakeside deck. After dining, relax on one of the swings. Many of the residential properties on this lake have a boat dock. The Houghtons bought two lots, making room for a boat dock AND a second "party deck" (this was their wish, in two words!). So HGID designed this as a floating lounge, literally - comfy upholstered seating areas with a huge TV, swimming dock (they're wake boarding fanatics) and wet bar complete with a kegerator (they're fanatical for beer). Everything is upholstered in Sunbrella, including the outdoor drapery, which all gets a heavy hose-down in advance of every visit. The couple and their guests can nap, lounge, party and relax there.
To add drama and a touch of Southern farmhouse style to their dining room, homeowners Jeremy and Amanda had a rustic farmhouse table lacquered in white, then added high-end black Maarten Baas Smoke chairs. The contrast between the white and the black adds high drama; the back wall was also painted black to delineate the dining room from the nearby lounge.
A round stone fire pit surrounded by Adirondack chairs creates the perfect spot for roasting marshmallows in this backyard. During the hotter months, a refreshing swimming pool with lounge chairs and an umbrella attracts the sun-lovers.
