A built-in, oversize umbrella offers shade above a modern ipe wood deck in this California backyard. The pool and hot tub are surrounded by planes of white concrete, and a cable rail system continues the space's clean horizontal lines.
Glass sections in the home's exterior walls allow indoor light to travel out onto this beautiful back deck. Levels in the architecture create a pleasing look complementary to the sharp angles of the home and swimming pool. Outdoor furniture provides an area to relax poolside.
This exterior space was meant to be a very manicured and well-balanced area. Loungers on the pool's baja step combine with other groupings of furniture to let the entertaining flow from area to area. The space is not very large, so the design works to maximize it as much as possible with appropriate accent lighting.
This clean-lined pool and hot tub area features an ipe wood deck and fence that add distinction and an organic, earthy flair. The white concrete and sweeping planes of the space give it a sleek, modern aesthetic.
Travertine creates clean lines and a high-end look for this square fire pit on a pool deck made of ipe wood. Volcanic rock fills the natural gas fire pit, which has a stainless steel burner. The modern fire pit and pool area is designed by Atlanta-based Hearthstone Environments.
Clean lines are the hallmark of this gorgeous modern home. The wood used in the house is also featured in the deck surrounding the pool, creating a sense of symmetry and connection. Recessed lights within the home reflect beautifully in the water.
Light concrete and stainless steel create a soft contrast against the natural hues of the trees and plants surrounding this deck. Stained wood transitions to the natural landscaping. A waterfall structure flows down into a circular pool, complementing the cascading movement of the deck levels.
