Rest of the Story:
Make your outdoor areas a natural extension of your home.
Look no further than your travels for inspiration. In some places, the lifestyle is as much about the outside as the interiors, especially when it comes to dining.
Designing a house that connects to the outside is only the first step. In order to make the outdoor spaces more livable, you have to make them comfortable too.
If you have set the stage for outdoor living, it’s not a big deal to go outside. Whether it’s heat from an outdoor fireplace, shade from a covered patio or a ceiling fan on a deck, make the setting comfortable for you and your guests to enjoy the outdoors.
Distinctive outdoor rooms, like a patio, roof deck or pool area, promote alfresco living and relaxation. Make your space feel like you are on vacation!
