This outdoor seating area is airy and calm.

Why We Love It

Because it’s covered, this patio is a functioning living space all year long. The fan ensures a nice breeze when it’s warm, and the fireplace is just right for cool-season comfort.


Lights, stone, natural fibers and fabrics, and plants work in harmony in this room.

What Makes It Work

Many elements from the earth are used in harmony with one another -- container plants, natural fibers and fabrics, light (fire and candles), and stone (veneer) -- to create a serene, relaxing outdoor retreat.


Candles light up the atmosphere.
Thomas J. Story

Steal This Idea

Create instant ambience, indoors or out, with a grouping of candles. Simply place candles in your color scheme in hurricanes of varying sizes. This will protect the glow from wind -- and also from curious children.
