Getaways are all about comfort and here, the lounging begins before guests even get through the door. The white, wood furniture pops against the dark gravel of the driveway and the moody color of the lodge itself. As Pflug says, “The color story here started with the outside of the building. I knew I wanted to paint it a kind of dark, off-black color. It looks so amazing next to the greens of nature. Everything else just came from there.”
Lounge in Comfort
Lounging by the pool is more comfortable thanks to an assortment of solid and striped outdoor pillows and cushy towels.
Bright blue accents and lush plantings brighten this urban terrace, creating an ideal spot to unwind or to entertain friends. A clean-lined woven sofa mixes with basket-weave chairs in a rubbed gold finish, resulting in a comfortable space that's at once modern and cozy. A "wall" of plants behind the seating area adds privacy and turns the space into a true outdoor room.
Outdoor Pillows Create the Prefect Outdoor Lounge Area
Striped and solid pillows create a harmonious design and add comfort to the tropical outdoor cabana. The deep red tone of the main cushion was used to compliment the reds of the Merbau wood frame, and the striped pillows with offset colors ties into the natural shades of the rocks, creating a perfect harmony of inviting colors.
Tucked inside an elegant covered patio, this Mediterranean-style outdoor dining room will make guests line up for an invitation. Large wicker chairs and a stylish overhead light fixture provide practical comfort.
A beautiful arched, brick entryway and stone patio lead out to the backyard from this covered, outdoor sitting area. Wood planks, a gold sunburst mirror and wicker furniture give this space the comfort and style of an indoor room.
Entertaining friends and family in comfort were extremely important to the homeowners, so designers merged the homeowners' love of the outdoors with an al fresco great room that offers all forms of entertainment: play, relaxation, socializing and dining. To create this great space, designers combined outdoor rugs, mixed furniture sets and lots of accessories to make the space feel like an extension of the home's interior.
The poolhouse features a sunken design, which gives a different perspective of the landscape, as well as heightened connectivity between activities.The poolhouse has all the comforts of home: an outdoor TV, wood burning fireplace, bathroom/changing room, storage room, full fridge and a high-end kitchen with a martini sink. Storm shutters drop down with a push of a button to provide protection on a stormy night or keep the sun out in the late afternoon. The three main arches facing the pool have screens as well to block the sun and reduce wind.
