Wide doorways throughout this sprawling Newport Coast, California, estate open the interior spaces to a series of covered and uncovered patios and courtyards.

An outdoor living room features a mix of design elements, from the reclaimed woods on the coffee table and ceiling beams to the clean, contemporary lines of the woven and upholstered seating. The space is sited to take advantage of the sweeping coastal views, and it also opens to the indoors via a wide retractable glass wall that slides into a pocket door. Traditional lanterns light the space, giving a nod to the Mediterranean architecture.
The front patio was designed for breaking bread with friends and enjoying views of the garden. A long wooden table centers the space, with a buffet that keeps dishes within easy reach, while a black accent wall adds a touch of intrigue.
Vibrant colorful pillows and rugs bring this inviting patio space to life. A stone bench is built into the retaining wall which doubles as a privacy wall enclosing the cozy space. Wood furniture, plants and woven planters add beautiful natural texture to compliment the aesthetic.
The design was meant to feel similar to a small Mediterranean village where people could come together in the main outdoor living space but also go indoors for privacy, whether that meant the main house or the cabana guest house at the back.
Geometric lines converge to add interest to this pretty patio. Stone pavers underfoot are bordered by grass, bringing an organic element to the space that links it to the surrounding California foliage. Slatted wood overhead filters sunlight for relaxed outdoor dining.
Contemporary double french doors open to an alfresco dining room on this gorgeous second-story stone balcony with a wood beamed roof.

Circled around the patio, a stone retaining wall adds some level of privacy to this outdoor space. Wrought iron furnishings feature plush, neutral cushions to create a cozy environment around the stone clad fireplace.
