Outdoor Fireplace on Spanish-Style Patio
A rustic elegance defines a host of outdoor patios and covered terraces that flank the home, including this comfortable lounge with an outdoor fireplace. Open-air living is a must in this waterfront hacienda.
Outdoor Conversation Area Features Plush Gray Armchairs
Plush charcoal gray armchairs carve out an intimate seating area on this covered patio. Large sliding glass doors open the patio to the interior of the home, allowing for seamless indoor-outdoor living.
Wide sliding doors connect the interior of this luxurious Texas estate to its resort-like backyard. A pergola shelters a seating area with a stacked stone fireplace, and a hot tub rests across the patio from a sleek, rectangular pool. The stone garden wall ties in with the home's white stone exterior.
Adding a decorative lattice fence accent not only establishes an elegant backdrop, but also brings the space together with form and function. A white scalloped lattice fence with a keyhole gracefully stands in front of feathery evergreens, giving the space definition and creating a focal point. Tip: White was chosen for this setting because it provides a striking contrast to the dark evergreen vegetation, enhancing the visual appeal. Additionally, the same material was repeated for an arched arbor gate that invites you into the space.
Patio and Spa: Waterfront Mansion Featured in Kourtney and Kim Take Miami
Fabulous indoor/outdoor terraces overlook the Biscayne Bay from this Mediterranean-style mansion in Miami. Known as Palazzo di Mare, the home was rented by socialite sisters Kourtney and Kim Kardashian while they filmed their E! reality series, Kourtney and Kim Take Miami.
Contemporary White Patio with Gray Sofa and Blue Pillows
As seen on Hidden Potential, the backyard of the newly renovated McCoy family home in Huntington Beach, California, features a new pool, separate seating and BBQ areas and storage, giving it the resort feel that the owners wanted.
With woven furniture and a built-in bench for added seating, this Mediterranean terrace is situated to take advantage of its surrounding landscape and stunning views. The Porto Rafael villa features a main manor and two annexes, all designed to showcase the sparkling blue waters of the Mediterranean and the lush foliage that surrounds the property.
Relax with a waterfront view in this navy and white covered patio with a partial pergola roof. Cushioned outdoor furniture provides plenty of space to entertain, with a navy and white striped area rug and contemporary white stump table.
A clean, modern fire pit is flanked by a built-in bench topped with custom cushions that blend into the calm, neutral color palette. A pair of sculptural boulders become art when placed before a dark garden wall, which edges an elevated pool.
Retractable walls open the indoor spaces of this modern home to its luxurious backyard pool and outdoor dining room. Wood accents on the ceiling bring visual warmth to the dining area, while flush-mounted infrared heaters add literal warmth, making the space functional all year round.
