Entertain in style with this outdoor kitchen made of stone bricks with a dark wood pergola. Ample stone countertops provide lots of cooking and serving space surrounding the gas grill and guest can relax on the nearby swing.
Outdoor drapery helps blur the lines between indoor spaces and exterior porches filled with upholstery, swings and places for lazy napping next to the saltwater pool, all keeping a fresh, clean and neutral palette. And after the sun goes down, the party moves to the lakeside fire pit.
Everything is upholstered in Sunbrella, including the outdoor drapery, which all gets a heavy hose-down in advance of every visit. The couple and their guests can nap, lounge, party and relax there.
A pergola with a large swinging daybed is the perfect spot to relax in this urban outdoor living space. An outdoor kitchen area leads around to a dining table that seats eight, perfect for entertaining.
Two pergolas flank the pool house and create outdoor rooms. One pergola forms a casual living room, complete with informal fire feature on an irregular bluestone patio. The other pergola design includes a swinging bed hanging from the perlins. Raised planting areas create a protected ambience and foster privacy in the pool zone. Sod ribbons on the raised bed stairs soften the hardscape.
The custom-made bed swing on this Atlanta back porch beckons people to read, chat and nap among the natural surroundings. The swing is one of the homeowners' favorite elements of their outdoor living space.
