Don't Strive for Perfection
One of the most interesting aspects of SCAD's Smithfield Cottage guest house design is how it embraces the imperfect. Found objects, unconventional artwork and unexpected details like this long table accessorized by a multicolored metal chairs mean the house never feels stuffy or too formal.
The charming courtyard behind Smithfield Cottage features a trellis adorned with jasmine, a Philippe Starck gnome for a cheeky nod to the garden gnome tradition and a long, communal wooden table where guests can congregate in this private, shady oasis. The Astroturf backyard means lower maintenance and a more sustainable design.
The outdoor dining area centers on the built-in grill with custom stonework. Using the same stone around both the grill and fireplace unites the two spaces and adds visual continuity to the overall design.
Even the most conservative space (and this isn’t one of them) can be beautifully enlivened with cool art and global details like this incredible mantle décor of primitive wooden figures mixed with a rustic wooden mantle and exposed beams on the home’s global-mix loggia.
An outdoor sitting area outside a New Orleans townhouse has color and personality thanks to this gray patio furniture set. The contemporary style serves as a modern-day counterpoint to the historic home.
Sliding glass doors open onto a covered patio, where the family grills, sips cocktails and watches boats sail into the horizon. Two cushioned sofas with blue pillows ensure everyone has enough room to stretch out.
Part of the renovation of this backyard area included the removal of large, overgrown bushes that were blocking the now visibly gorgeous view. A covered outdoor area includes a stainless steel kitchen and room for dining.
