Fire Pit Makes Intimate Entertaining Space
Landscape architect J.R. Kramer knew that the sideyard was a great spot for a small fire pit. Here, four wood chairs circle the feature and invite the owners and their friends to take in the beauty of their surroundings.
Coastal-Inspired Backyard With Outdoor Shower and Fire Pit
Inspired by its coastal location, the backyard features red Adirondack chairs and nautical accessories. A pair of teak lounge chairs sit just beyond the stone fire pit and dining area, all providing plenty of space for entertaining.
The design of the pool deck mimics the front porch, which ties the spaces together. Synthetic turf between the lounging space and the pool allows the surface water to drain and creates maximum flexibility in the use of the tight space for entertaining. The flooring is made of a tropical hardwood.
Small Patio With Seafoam Blue Striped Rug Under Woven Bubble Furniture With Yellow Throw Pillows
In a small outdoor space, an outdoor rug can play multiple roles, creating a seating “island” as it does here, adding color and style, and making the area appear larger thanks to the introduction of an overall pattern. Designer Annastasia Mitchell chose this rug carefully for its seafoam blue color, which repeats the apartment’s interior color palette, “providing a sense of visual flow,” she says, and to repeat the horizontal pattern of the louvered windows.
Coastal Home With Stucco Exterior and Roundabout Driveway
This gorgeous coastal home features a neutral stucco exterior paired with a Spanish tile roof. Paver stones cover the roundabout driveway, while palm trees and other tropical plants dot the front yard.
