The two daughters of the family get a play space all to themselves, accessible by sliding doors off of their bedrooms. Instead of a deck, the homeowner decided to cover the girls' outdoor space in astroturf.
This house, originally built in the 1880s, had been divided into four separate apartments. During its remodel, the main floor was reconfigured with an open concept floor plan that joins the kitchen, dining and living areas as well as an outdoor terrace.
Doors from inside are framed by elegant yet casual damask curtains, softening the view of this outdoor terrace with rustic charm. Brick pavers are laid in a herringbone pattern to add interest underfoot. A long dining table surrounded by wicker chairs provides the perfect spot for entertaining in view of the pool.
This home features a detailed terrace that connects the indoor space to the outdoor space. Glass walls put the indoor dining room in view, creating symmetry between the spaces. The terrace includes a custom pergola, wood fire feature, grilling table and raised herb planter.
Bold Mediterranean blue upholstery livens up this outdoor terrace overlooking a tranquil waterside scene. Deep, facing sofas with an ottoman in between provide a comfortable spot for outdoor conversation.
With four durable chairs and a round dining table, this secluded outdoor terrace becomes the perfect place to enjoy a meal al fresco. Rows of European boxwood plants and evergreen trees help define the space even further.
Stone tiles cover the floor of this Paradiso rooftop terrace with a modern privacy wall and outdoor furniture for guests. Enjoy a glass of wine day or night in this private space and take in the views of Lake Lugano.
The landscape design of this backyard uses multiple levels to make full use of the outdoor space. Here, a patio is home to the dining table, while a deck just below it makes a cozy sitting area with a fire bowl and chairs.
