The patio view from this midcentury modern home is stunning: A pool in the distance is lined with lounge chairs for sunning and surrounded by the endemic trees of the region for privacy. Near to the home, an outdoor dining table and living area provide ample space for entertaining, and a fire pit adds warmth and pizzazz.
A long stretch of patio borders the back of this Laguna Beach home with prime waterfront viewing. Designers connected the interior to the picturesque outdoor space via a series of sliding doors that act as disappearing walls.
One of the goals in the creation of this home's outdoor space was to make it as open as possible. To that end, designers used clear railings around the pool and deck and kept all the elements on a low scale.
Collaboration between the home's designer and architect resulted in a flowing floor plan, with soaring windows that overlook wide-open fields. In this outdoor lounge, four plush chairs enjoy views of the lake and a bold art display.
A half wall creates some privacy for the outdoor shower while still leaving it open to the gorgeous surrounding bay view. Wicker lounge chairs overlook the water for a cozy spot to relax and take in the view.
Pink chairs with colorful striped seats add a beachy feel to this concrete balcony. The colors shine against the natural hues of the outdoors. A black railing encompasses the flooring with a grid design creating a safety wall.
The roof is extended off the doors to the pool area to create shaded patios around the pool. A pair of lounge chairs with bright blue cushions bring a pop of color to the space and have the perfect view for relaxing outdoors. Pavers are used to create a geometric surround around the pool, while grass in between softens the hardscaping.
