Everything about this gorgeous backyard, patio and pool was designed to evoke the East Coast's Hamptons. Pergolas provide poolside shade, while cozy furnishings and blue accents infuse the outdoors with a style all their own.
When they're not swimming, the owners can sit along the side of the pool and listen to the waterfall. With large boulders and trees all around, this space exudes the same peace and tranquility of the Great Outdoors.
Broad expanses of glass on the exterior of this California home blur the connection between inside and out, turning the backyard into livable square footage. With built-in seating around the fire pit and an outdoor dining table for eight, this modern patio is perpetually party-ready.
The back of this historic home is just as lovely as the front, with double doors that open to a quiet courtyard. A cushioned bench and chairs comprise the seating area, while a high-top table creates a casual spot for coffee or wine.
Retractable fabric adds another level of shade to the dining space. Because it sits just across from the pool, this refreshing area also comes with views of the water fountain and tiled accent wall.

A Tropical Pool Space With Unique Features For Entertaining
A geometric South Florida swimming pool includes a sunken circular seating area that's comfortably appointed with neutral pillows and cushions, providing ample area for relaxation around a central fire pit. Corners of the pool feature plants such as Mexican Fan palms that are set in dark, tumbled pebbles and framed by neutral stone pavers or dark ipe wood.
When the owners need an escape from their day-to-day, they can leave the house behind and enter this soothing outdoor space. Lush vegetation surrounds the walkway and inspires a sense of peace and tranquility.
During the day, the pavilion's metal roof offers relief from the sun's rays. As they sit on the wood floor below, the owners can dip their feet into the water and listen to the soft sounds of their environment.
