One of the goals in the creation of this home's outdoor space was to make it as open as possible. To that end, designers used clear railings around the pool and deck and kept all the elements on a low scale.
Remodeled for a client who downsized from a large piece of property to a zero lot concept. Here in SoCal we are having a water shortage so many of my clients are moving away from the houses with acreage and buying tiny beach homes to have a pared down simple lifestyle.
This perfectly situated deck from HGTV Dream Home 2011 boasts amazing views from the comfort of two plush lounge chairs. Walls of windows ensure the views are never blocked, even for those inside the home.
The woven design of the umber-hued lounge chairs on this cozy deck resembles classic wicker furnishings. A grand live oak, saved during the home's construction, provides a shading canopy over this outdoor sitting area.
