Naturally, this home comes with a formal dining room and a dining space outside for more casual get-togethers. With a grill, counter, large table and eight chairs, the owners have everything they need to entertain.
This pretty patio also includes a dining table, with cushioned chairs for comfortable seating. At night, the owners and their friends can enjoy dinner beneath the stars while exchanging casual conversation.
A smooth flagstone patio waits just off the kitchen, giving the owners another spot to entertain visitors. While the chef whips up dinner, guests can take their drinks outside and admire the gardens, then gather around the wood dining table.
Double doors open to the back patio, where the owners have access to an outdoor kitchen, dining set and two lounge chairs for sunbathing. Shrubs soften the space and ensure that it speaks to its surroundings.
A circular glass and wicker table makes a simple and beautiful outdoor dining room. Matching rattan chairs with green seat cushions and multicolor leaf lumbar pillows add touches of color to this tropical dining set.
Stephanotis floribunda climbs the pergola and so keeps the dining area below cool and shaded. To the right, an outdoor kitchen with a grill and bar ensures that the owners and their guests are never without refreshments.

The wood exterior of this midcentury modern home frames this courtyard space giving it privacy while allowing it to still feel open and spacious. Wood furniture is arranged to form a sitting space and an outdoor dining set up over the pressed gravel floor. Plant life adds natural texture and color to decorate.
Adding red cushions to outdoor dining chairs creates a vibrancy that comes from the contrast against trees and plants. The traditional iron scrollwork of the chairs and table bring an unexpected yet fun sense of formality to the patio gathering space.
