There’s nothing like a chandelier to create an elegant dining atmosphere. But wiring for an outdoor fixture can be complicated, and wet-rated styles are somewhat limited. One solution is to hang a candle chandelier from the beams of a pergola or covered patio, as designer Howard Roberts did here. Use battery-operated LED “candles” for easy operation. Add string lights radiating from the chandelier’s mounting to create a magical canopy of light above diners' heads.
A comfortable, homey outdoor space is a must since the majority of leisure will be spent on this porch with an incredible beach view. The outdoor fireplace, coffered ceiling and candle chandelier make this space feel like a direct extension of the indoor living room.
A true extension of indoor living, this outdoor living and dining space boasts a bar, stained wood coffered ceilings and candle chandeliers. The long dining table lends itself perfectly to entertaining.
This two-story home features two porches. The lower one has an outdoor seating area with wicker furniture and a candle chandelier. The balcony offers additional outdoor seating, accessible from the home via sliding doors.
