This terrace treats visitors to panoramic views of the forests, lakes and mountains that decorate Washington State. When they need to put their feet up, the owners can kick back on those two comfortable chaises.

Three-Tiered Pool Design With Black Onyx Water Features
Jason Brownlee truly created a work of art for this lakefront property in his design of a terraced pool with water features in black onyx. It connects visually with the Mediterranean-inspired home while providing contrast in color and texture. Especially stunning is the reflective, infinity-edged upper section that is flush with the patio and features a decorative fire bowl to provide accent and drama. Travertine stone creates consistency with the rest of the home and allows the pool and landscaping to take prominence.
Not every deck party needs to happen during the day. With the right deck lighting – think side posts and post caps as well as riser lighting on the stairs for safety – you can create a warm, inviting atmosphere that’s perfect for an adults-only cocktail party or movies and s’mores for the kids.
This 8,000-square-foot home is carefully integrated into the surrounding landscape, which includes more than 130 live oak trees. The bedrooms are buried into a hill and beneath a green roof of edible herbs.
