Eclectic Outdoor Living Area
Off the back of the house is a relaxing, welcoming patio area. A group of comfortable wicker chairs is the perfect spot to enjoy the contemporary backyard and pool. An umbrella adds shade over the outdoor dining area.
Director's chairs with white canvas seats make for comfortable, easy seats on the front porch. A black ceramic garden stool acts as the side table and yellow-and-white outdoor fabric pillows brighten the space, welcoming guests.
Backyard with Concrete Patio, Tiered Lawn Area, Trees and Potted Plants
This small-ish but gorgeous back yard has a little bit of everything -- a concrete patio area with Adirondak-style chairs, a tiered lawn and a wood deck in the background. Multiple flower beds -- plus potted plants and native trees -- ensure nature is the primary design element in the outdoor space.
Adults and kids alike can enjoy this backyard, which features a comfortable sitting area and a tire swing. Licensed contractor Matt Blashaw and his crew transformed the Federico residence on HGTV's original series Yard Crashers.
Eclectic Patio with Yellow Chairs, Multi-Colored Fabric Pouf Ottoman and Silver Garden Stool
Floor poufs are a low-price way to add seating without investing in larger pieces of furniture, such as a sofa or chaise, say Gabriela Eisenhart and Holly Conlan with Wake + Loom Design. While you can find outdoor poufs for less than $50, you also can make your own fabric pouf ottoman in a pattern and palette that you prefer. Also, a garden stool is a versatile item that can serve as extra seating or a side table.
French Doors Fill Three-Season Porch With Natural Light
On the other side of this three-season porch, a large wood table becomes the perfect perch for some ferns. Just behind the plants, an oversized mirror reflects the natural light coming in through the French doors and makes the space feel even bigger and brighter.
To the left of the chairs, a Steve Chase deco-inspired console table with bold lines offers a cool visual contrast to the hillside. Meanwhile, palm fronds painted gold and a vintage sculpture of a woman nod to the art studio downstairs.
Eclectic Residence Offers Unrivaled View and Seclusion
Nestled in the hills of northern California, this eclectic and truly iconic home boasts a stunning view of the Crystal Springs Reservoir. Although the home's vibrant orange and purple exterior easily stands out from the hillside, the surrounding trees still provide a degree of seclusion and privacy.
