Outdoor Areas

Photography by Creative Revolver

Airy and bright, this cozy veranda can be enjoyed year-round, thanks to durable materials and its overhead covering. Strategically placed to encourage conversation, white-framed furniture provides crisp contrast to its pale blue fabric, which was designed to survive the outdoor elements. Geometric patterned accent pillows add a playful yet refined touch, while coordinating white side tables are a practical choice that allow various plants to be displayed, further sprucing up the space. Continuing the botanical theme, a large Impressionist-style floral painting acts as a focal point on the far wall, breaking up the monotony of the bright white siding. Underfoot, a neutral woven area rug pulls from the colors of the painting to achieve a unified design. All of this overlooks a beautifully manicured backyard, making it the ideal spot for a morning cup of coffee or an afternoon visit with friends.
