The patio view from this midcentury modern home is stunning: A pool in the distance is lined with lounge chairs for sunning and surrounded by the endemic trees of the region for privacy. Near to the home, an outdoor dining table and living area provide ample space for entertaining, and a fire pit adds warmth and pizzazz.
The Bucktown Hot Tub Retreat provides a serene space to relax amid the active city.

A long stretch of patio borders the back of this Laguna Beach home with prime waterfront viewing. Designers connected the interior to the picturesque outdoor space via a series of sliding doors that act as disappearing walls.
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.
Collaboration between the home's designer and architect resulted in a flowing floor plan, with soaring windows that overlook wide-open fields. In this outdoor lounge, four plush chairs enjoy views of the lake and a bold art display.
Perpendicular exposed ceiling beams create a subtle but decorative design on the ceiling of this luxurious cabana. Natural wood flooring keeps the design light under the large leather sectional and modern square chairs. Turquoise pillows add a touch of color to the bright, cozy space.
A half wall creates some privacy for the outdoor shower while still leaving it open to the gorgeous surrounding bay view. Wicker lounge chairs overlook the water for a cozy spot to relax and take in the view.
A pergola provides partial shade over a row of wood lounge chairs sitting poolside in this bright backyard. Vase-like end tables separate the chairs and add a functional decorative touch to the patio. Vivid grass and healthy plant life create a bright frame around the water.
