Courtyard With Flair
A covered seating area in a charming planted courtyard beckons for outdoor entertaining no matter what the weather forecast.
What Makes It Work
Outdoor entertaining turns dramatic when night falls and the edges of the space drop away into darkness. I imagine this courtyard makes a terrific backdrop for a party, with the splashing of the fountain and the mysterious vine-covered walls receding into the dim. Potted trees and shrubs further divide the space, carving it into charming nooks and crannies.
