Entertaining Alfresco

Dinner parties have a nice flow from indoors to outdoors, thanks to a deck that extends the great room outside. The deck is a great place for serving dinner and enjoying the backyard.

Year-Round Yard

A double car garage behind HGTV Urban Oasis 2018 is transformed into a multi-functional lounge and creative space complete with heating and air conditioning.

Keep It Casual

You don't need much to host a nice gathering. Extra space in the backyard allows for a modern concrete top dining table with a pop of red chairs. For an eye-catching and inexpensive focal point assemble a bouqet of sunflowers or whatever is in season.

Lounge-Worthy and Retro

Extra seating for playing card games or just lounging and listening to music makes this a perfect hang out for family and friends. A potting table, like the one found on the right side, is the perfect set up to display cocktails and drinks for thirsty guests.

Creative Connection

A mixture of soft upholstery and handsome leather seating options combine to create a calm, modern retreat. The gold lining inside the modern pendant lamps adds a warm glow to the room.

Glowing Design

Bistro lights illuminate each of the outdoor living areas from the deck and pergola to the dining space in the yard to create a calm and inviting outdoor oasis.

Curb Appeal

A combination of annuals and perennials are part of the landscaping, that helps beautify the home and provides a welcoming motif for family and friends. The porch is the perfect hang out for small gatherings and greeting guests as they arrive.

Relax in Style

The durable black wicker sectional on the front porch has gray cushions and an elegant but comfortable look and feel, and provides the perfect spot ffor guests to gather and visit while enjoying a beverage or snack. The sectional sofa was made to withstand weather and sun damage.

Ready for a Dinner Party

A round table with high-gloss white finish and whitewashed woven rattan chairs sit center stage in the open dining room. This inviting space that can seat up to six includes different textures and shades of green that coordinate with the eucalyptus green walls of the home's main floor. Its close proximity to the living creates a nice flow for guests.

Central Location

This angle of the the dining room, entry and the adjacent kitchen shows the close proximity and connection the spaces now enjoy, which makes it easy to share family meals and entertain guests. “The dining room was previously isolated from the kitchen and the layout was very choppy,” says project manager Dan Faires.

Kitchen Party Prep

The kitchen is ready for casual entertaining. You can eat at the island, and prep food there. It's perfect to help get guests involved in getting dinner ready.

Must-Have Open Shelving

For over guests, open shelving means your early-rising friends can wake up and make themselves some cereal without awkwardly rooting around in your cabinets.

Organized Pantry

For optimal efficiency, open shelving in the pantry makes it easy to quickly find what you need when entertaining guests.
