Every lakeside retreat needs a spacious outdoor kitchen and grilling spot to host year-round parties. This living space is complete with an extra-large patio, retaining wall, dining area, fireplace, custom-built dining table and fireside sofa.
This fireplace commands all of the attention in this room. An extremely wide firebox allows the entire wall to become a fireplace object that the architect has clad in a textured stone, coarse and shadowed, yet it remains machined like the fireplace opening.
In this living room, an unusual shelf sits atop a concrete slab; its wide-spaced wood slats allow the sunlight to filter in. Below, a long, low modern fireplace echoes the general shape and lines of the ranch home.
This spectacular patio offers up the very best in outdoor living: A cedar roof shelters the space from the hot sun or rain, but wide open walls keep the views on constant display. There's a fireplace for chilly evenings, a huge sectional for easy lounging and a long dining table for the ultimate al fresco dinner parties.

Graphic black-and-cream tiles create a Moroccan modern vibe in this contemporary living space. A large circular mirror brightens up the look, visually enlarging the room. European oak wide plank wood flooring grounds the space.
A warm and inviting luxurious master suite offers its own carved Canterra stone fireplace and a wall of massive windows, allowing for expansive mountain and desert views. The ceiling features wood beamed trusses, and the space is grounded by random wire brushed wide plank wood floors.
The sleek, modern fireplace in this urban dwelling creates a low-slung, horizontal line that's echoed in furnishings throughout the space.

Wide sliding doors connect the interior of this luxurious Texas estate to its resort-like backyard. A pergola shelters a seating area with a stacked stone fireplace, and a hot tub rests across the patio from a sleek, rectangular pool. The stone garden wall ties in with the home's white stone exterior.
A custom cornice box and draperies frame the view in this contemporary family room, drawing the eye to the sweeping seascape beyond. A wide custom fireplace warms the space while a flat-panel TV is situated above for easy viewing.
