The family wanted a unique space for outdoor entertaining, so designers created a space that would function as an extension of the home's interior. A wood paneled ceiling and dark, wicker furniture bring a warm contrast to the neutral space, while the space's high arches let in plenty of natural light. In order to control the natural light during the day and keep bugs out at night, heavy curtains were hung so that the homeowners would be able to control the atmosphere of their space. To help the space remain usable during cooler weather, a fireplace was added to give off warmth when needed.
A beautiful arched, brick entryway and stone patio lead out to the backyard from this covered, outdoor sitting area. Wood planks, a gold sunburst mirror and wicker furniture give this space the comfort and style of an indoor room.
