Fireplace Allows for Entertaining Year-Round

Those cool blue and white hues continue across the pool, helping to connect separate sitting areas. Here, weatherproof chairs and a stone fireplace give the owners another warm spot to entertain.

Swimming Pool Boasts Modern Fountains

Sleek water fountains line the far edge of the pool, making an eye-catching display and creating soothing ambient noise. After a swim, guests can relax in the cabana and pretend they're listening to the ocean.

Cabana Keeps Cool With Coastal Colors

Refreshing blue and white accents bring a taste of the beach to this backyard cabana. Guests can take their pick of several plush white chairs and lounge, read or daydream about their next Caribbean adventure.

Cabana Includes Custom Accent Wall

As if this outdoor space weren't alluring enough, an accent wall with a TV and bar makes leaving nearly impossible. A metal chandelier draws interest to the textured ceiling overhead, while curtains can be pulled out to block the wind.

Patterned Pillows Draw Visual Interest

For comfort and visual appeal, designer Anissa Swanzy layered the space with a variety of accent pillows. Although each piece features its own texture or pattern, a common color palette helps them fit together.

Comfortable, Contemporary Lounge Chairs

Lounging becomes a luxurious experience in this backyard, thanks to two stylish armchairs and a soft white umbrella. Guests can dip a toe in the pool or soak up the warm California breezes.

Comfortable Chairs Meet Outdoor Dining Area

With comfortable seating and a dining table just a few steps away, this outdoor space was made for easy entertaining. Bonus, a coffee table offers room for hors d'oeuvres and drinks.

Outdoor Sitting Area Shines With Symmetry

Identical armchairs and accessories ensure that this outdoor sitting area is rich with symmetry. A stone fireplace anchors the vignette, while also keeping the space warm for guests.

Outdoor Kitchen Plus Extra Seating

What dining space would be complete without a custom kitchen? Here, a large counter offers surface area for serving trays and drinks, while a reclaimed wood bar provides additional seating.

Dining Area Boasts Custom Chandelier

A custom chandelier hangs over the dining table for visual interest and additional lighting at night. Meanwhile, a few space heaters and a brick fireplace ensure total comfort.

Tablescape Showcases Pretty Blue Plates

Talk about a tablescape! With a textured runner, trimmed plants, stacks of pretty plates and even a few drinks, this outdoor dining space will easily impress guests.
