Rustic stone is used throughout this southwestern patio, leading to a Arizona vacation home. An adobe-style fireplace adds warmth to the space, while a steel-tub water feature brings ambiance and a serene quality to the patio.
Distressed gray chairs with gray-and-white striped pillows sit in front of a stone water fountain for a relaxing spot by the pool. Terracotta tile and square tiles in blue and terracotta shades creates a southwestern-inspired surround to the pool.
Pockets of seating create a sense of coziness in this outdoor room. The cavernous space benefits from the glow of interior lighting while boasting its own outdoor fireplace. A custom light fixture made from perforated metal stars made in Mexico adds regional style and sparkle.
The Spanish-style home consists of several structures including the main house, barn, guest quarters and office clustered around a walled outdoor courtyard. An 80-year-old Italian stone pine provides a majestic canopy to the home.
This modern Southwestern style home is eco-friendly-something the homeowners are concerned about. The drought resistant plants will hold up in the harsh desert climates, and instead of grass, the homeowners have used gravel and other rocks to cut down on their water consumption.
Southwestern-Style Patio With Cooking Station and Countertop
An outdoor cooking station includes extended counter space for friends and family to gather with the cook. The counter is trimmed in the same Spanish-style ceramic tile that adorns the nearby fireplace, creating visual continuity in the patio area.
