One of the focal points of this family's redesigned home from AB Design Elements is the chic protected patio that is located adjacent to the large open kitchen. The grand, two-story stone fireplace fits the rustic design of the space and harmonizes with the exposed wood beams of the ceiling and the style of the dining table. Moreover, the star pendants hanging above the dining table are a lovely and unexpected design detail that provide a fun, whimsical touch.
Indoor/outdoor living can be enjoyed year round in this California community. Here, a spacious atrium is the perfect gathering spot for family and friends. Modern rattan furniture placed near the built-in fire pit adds plenty of space for relaxation. Design by Kevin Smith
Outdoor drapery helps blur the lines between indoor spaces and exterior porches filled with upholstery, swings and places for lazy napping next to the saltwater pool, all keeping a fresh, clean and neutral palette. And after the sun goes down, the party moves to the lakeside fire pit.
One of the home’s many outdoor seating areas is arranged to take full advantage of the limestone fireplace from Casa de Cantera. The pillows on the homeowners’ iron-frame chairs were refreshed with Perennials fabric from John Brooks Incorporated.
