The cool color palate of this rooftop terrace sitting area complements the warm wood of the privacy screen and container hedge. The modern fire pit matches the clean lines of the seating area, creating an attractive focal point.
A vaulted ceiling with exposed wood beams covers this screened patio. A simple outdoor dining area and sitting area with rocking chairs allows plenty of space for entertaining. Durable floor tiles ground the space in a stylish way.
This house wraps around a pretty backyard that looks out onto Lake Minnetonka. Up top, a deck is home to a deluxe outdoor kitchen and dining area. On the lower level, there's a sitting area and screened-in porch.
The homeowners decided to dedicate the screened-in porch to a spacious sitting area instead of trying to squeeze in a dining table as well. The swing is the size of a twin bed for totally roomy relaxing.
In this cozy sitting area, a white leather sectional takes up prime position opposite the fireplace, wall mounted flatscreen and windows. When the game is over, a sliding wood panel hides the tv screen.
The grand living room (over 1500 square feet!) provides panoramic skyline views via over 65 feet of floor-to-ceiling windows and contains two sitting areas, a free-floating fireplace, bar and drop-down movie screen.
Contrasting bright white molding and light green beadboard walls bring a touch of coastal flair to this traditional sitting area and adjacent kitchen. Natural light from an alcove of windows fills the space and lets nature in. A set of French doors leads out to a screened patio dining area providing plenty of space for entertaining.
During this colonial home's renovation, a screened porch was added to the rear elevation. The porch, which is connected to the family room by sliding French doors, features a sitting area, fireplace and dining area for 10. Both side yards — one housing the kids' play area and the other boasting an open terrace — are visible from the porch.
The design goal for this backyard? Create a quiet escape for meditating and relaxing. Fragrant plants are the inviting screen around an in-ground hot tub. Nearby, a fire pit is at the heart of a sitting area.
