This family-friendly and sustainable backyard features a raised vegetable garden, built-in bench seating, a safari-style pergola and a nearby breakfast deck with a cozy bistro table. Underneath the pergola, a spacious outdoor dining table can comfortably seat up to 11 people for alfresco entertaining.
The patio off the breakfast and family rooms is meant to entertain! There's a stainless steel grill, an outdoor fireplace, plenty of space for a dining table. And the sound of a nearby fountain provides a soothing backdrop.
Four Philippe Starck Ghost chairs surround a contemporary pedestal table in this all-white breakfast space. A spoked contemporary pendant lights the space, while loads of surrounding windows bring the outdoors - and the sunshine - in. The adjoining living space features a glass wall that fully opens, allowing the owners and their guests to enjoy a seamless transition to outdoor living.
The perfectly overgrown landscaping of this cozy cottage pays homage to the fact that the space was once a garden shed. It has since been remodeled into a beautiful, quaint guest space with a small deck and breakfast table, two side patios and French doors on all four sides of the cabin to allow direct access to each of the outdoor spaces.
Dress cold, bare dorm room floors with indoor-outdoor rugs that are inexpensive and hold up to a lot of traffic and spills. Here, we layered a black polypropylene rug on top of a larger sisal rug to add style and texture to the space. The black rug allows the white table top to pop, while the additional rugs compliment the light gold and turquoise tones of the breakfast tray.
Entertaining space was important to these homeowners, so designers made sure to add ample dining space both inside the house and outside. One such space is this home's breezeway that accommodates two tables that seat four people. The tables are sturdy, weatherproof wicker with outdoor cushions for comfort, and, since they are protected by the breezeway roof, homeowners can use this space in rain or shine. To top off the elegance of the space, this outdoor dining area is situated directly in front of beautiful ocean views, making it the perfect location for a sunset dinner or sunrise breakfast.
