The owners of this traditional, coastal home requested a lounge-style dining area with views to the ocean. The designers took advantage of the open concept floor plan to arrange the furniture into a focal point, drawing the eye from the entry straight through the dining space to the sweeping vista beyond. The entire back of the house opens up to a full sun deck, allowing for panoramic views of the beach.
A balcony offers a bird's eye view of this traditional great room, where the central dining space flows into the kitchen, living room and sun deck beyond. A large lantern-style chandelier has the size and presence to light the space, while the nautical feel of its rope-like design complements the home's coastal location and theme. The dining room opens to the outdoor space and offers comfortable, lounge-style seating, inviting guests to linger and enjoy the ocean views.
A reclaimed window serves as a translucent wall at the end of the back deck on this Bolinas, Calif., estate. Lavender plants frame the deck while offering a pleasant fragrance for anyone out enjoying the sun.
Complete with a bar, surround sound and water mister, this luxurious boat deck comes equipped with all the necessary features for enjoying a summer day on the lake. With a covered deck, it offers respite from the sun as well.
This sunny roof deck project features multiple seating areas, an outdoor dining table and a custom fire pit. A cedar pergola offers partial shade above Ipe decking and SYNLawn artificial grass, making this rooftop deck a perfect space for entertaining and sun bathing in the Windy City.
