This outdoor living space wows with a transitional design blending artful and charming finishes with chic lines and sleek features. The stunning geometric pool and infinity spa, LED lighting, see-through fireplace, natural stone deck and surrounds create a luxurious atmosphere perfect for entertaining or simply relaxing at home.

A custom designed table made from Italian porcelain flooring with a glass tile inlay is flanked by comfortable metal dining chairs with striped blue cushions in this outdoor dining area. The view from the table is expansive and opens up to hillsides covered in eucalyptus and palm trees and a comfortable lounge area with additional seating. The hillside lounge area is framed by two taupe pillars, a brick patio and a brown wood guardrail, emphasizing the neutral color palette of the garden.
The key to making outdoor spaces feel warm and welcoming is layering them like indoor spaces. Any time you plan a space, large or small, try to incorporate low-maintenance plants and potted flowers into the mix along with carefree rugs that add color, pattern and texture.
No matter the weather, this covered patio is a great spot for lounging. A ceiling fan allows the homeowners and their guests to cool down during the hotter months. There's even a nearby pool for enjoying a swim.
