Tri-level decks make the most of this California home's outdoor space while adding living area for a modern family. Sliding glass doors on the top floor, pocket doors in the center and a roll-up garage door at ground level are flexible and fit with the home's unique, modern architecture. The bold pink, yellow and teal color palette reflects the fun personality of the owners.
In the backyard of this midcentury modern home, planter boxes line the windows and the landscaping is kept simple, yet elegant. Limestone decking leads the way to the narrow, elongated pool complete with lounge chairs and a spa for relaxing and enjoying the view.
Evergreens in custom ipe planters line this modern urban backyard and provide privacy from neighboring buildings. New York City fire code limits the amount of wood decking that can be used in terrace and roof design, so the designers turned this limitation into a design feature.
It's great to be modern, but the holidays are all about tradition. So be sure to add a little retro styling to your holiday decor to celebrate all the joys of Christmas past. Don't be afraid to bring out the tinsel, your favorite red bows, and the traditional Christmas balls to deck the halls for your retro holiday. Photo courtesy of Mrs. Lilien
This playroom is decked out in modern style. A bubble gum pink sofa complements a white mod coffee table and hanging lanterns in the sitting area. To the right, a floating countertop acts as a craft area, topped with wall-mounted shelves and under-cabinet lighting.
This modern space serves multiple functions, with a seating area, sleeping nook and built-in bench with storage. Because the house sits in a special zoning area, the designers were unable to increase the square footage of the existing house, instead building a separate structure that connects to the old house by a deck. The home runs on solar power, recycles gray water and captures rain water in cisterns. All interior doors are built from recycled flooring.
A wall in the two-story great room of this contemporary home is decked out with floor-to-ceiling windows affording views of the surrounding trees and far-off views. A non-traditional layout of the windows adds to the modern feel of the home.
A mid-century modern table with a pretty calla lily centerpiece sits in this contemporary white living room. A wall of white bookshelves decked out in brightly-colored books and accessories livens up the entire room.
A series of patios, decks and terraces wrap around the back of this home, giving the outdoor space a sense of dimension. This terrace is dedicated to a square fire pit. The accompanying adirondack chairs look refreshingly modern in slate gray and a scaled-down size.
Beautiful decking creates a durable path that leads to the modern shaded outdoor dining room. Creating individual spaces in the backyard with visual markers like the shaded pergola enhance the design and create unique zones that make it easy to enjoy every inch of this inviting outdoor oasis.
While staying true to the architecture of the house, modern design elements were incorporated as well. The barbecue enclosure is veneered with limestone in a subway tile cut, while a trellis added to the garage adds shade over the outdoor kitchen area. Due to the limited space of the backyard, the original backyard did not provide adequate lounging space for the homeowners. A dry deck is added within the pool perimeter, using lightweight blocks to ensure no unnecessary weight was put on the existing gunite shell.
The pool house kitchen often serves as a wet bar and food prep station for the family's pool parties, so the small galley kitchen has been decked out in Ann Sacks tile and custom shelves. The tile backsplash gives the room a textured feel, while the open shelving helps keep the modern look of the space.

Th focus of this home's pool area is oneness with nature. A natural wood deck extends from the modern facade of the home, further blending the construction of this building with its surroundings. Two chaise lounges, a covered chaise lounge and a fire pit rest next to the pool so that homeowners can enjoy their views. The most spectacular part of this outdoor living space, however, is the infinity pool that stretches out across the space and seems to become one with the hillside, providing the ultimate "one with nature" feel designers and homeowners craved.
