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.

Walls encase this patio sitting room, but the sunlight streams in from above. Arched panels protruding from the wall give a unique, 3D finish behind a row of small succulents adding natural color to the space. The patio floor is striped powder blue and white under a collection of black patio furniture with white cushions. A single orange throw pillow adds a touch of color and compliments the hue of the retaining walls.
