These 5 completely POSH outdoor living spaces each offer fresh ideas for building your dream space this season

Natural Approach: Let your home's environment dictate it's decor. When choosing the color palette, look to the colors in your surroundings and let your outdoor space become an extension of it's setting.

Pretty as a Picture: The goal of this room: maximizing the view. By keeping the furniture low, sticking with clean lines, & using simple materials you invite your eye to focus not the view not the decor. Quality, low-maintenance materials such as ipe are great to keep in mind for being cost efficient . Îpe decking offers the weather-resistant properties of teak at a lower price.

Island Dreaming: Invite the breeze but not the neighbors. Create the perfect indoor/outdoor room with exposed wood ceilings reminiscent of a tiki hut. Choose a shellstone flooring to continue in the beach feel.

Covering All Aspects: Create the ultimate outdoor living area with adding a canopied daybed. It breaks up the traditional seating arrangement and is also perfect for naps. Arrange furniture to create multiple conversation areas. Benches are always a budget-friendly way to add more seating.

Cook under the Stars: Bring the party outside with a fully functional outdoor kitchen. A grill, refrigerator, and sink are all you need. To limit trips indoors, install a dishwasher and keep cabinets stocked with dishware and utensils. For countertops, designer suggestion is concrete or solid-surface materials, such as Corian.

Enjoy the outdoors!
