Summer Dreaming: Planning Your Outdoor Oasis

 If January’s distinct chill has you dreaming of summertime, you’re definitely not alone. In fact, winter is the best time to plan your outdoor retreat so it’s ready in time for warm weather entertaining. 

While every outdoor space we create for our clients is designed to fit their unique needs, there are definitely certain elements that top our list of must-haves: 

Spectacular Views.

Basic though it may seem, an outdoor living space should connect homeowners with their beautiful natural surroundings. We love using low-profile railings, picture windows and doors, and carefully spaced pillars to frame the great outdoors around our clients’ properties in the best way possible.

Room for Entertaining.

From dining tables to living areas, we love an outdoor space that truly feels like an extension of our clients’ homes, especially when it comes to entertaining. Whether your home is the summertime gathering spot for big family get-togethers or small parties of friends, creating enough room outdoors for guests to mingle is a must.

Cozy Vibes.

Although we love them in the summer, our favorite outdoor spaces are the ones that can be used throughout the year, and nothing makes a patio more inviting on crisp fall nights than a crackling fireplace. When paired with a TV for watching the game, a tray of s’mores ingredients, and a few soft throw blankets across the sofa, you’ll never want to go indoors again!

Modern Amenities.

From gorgeous roofs and sleek ceiling fans to give you some relief on the hottest days to beautiful lighting fixtures and outdoor kitchens for parties that continue well after sunset, we love an outdoor space that provides all the comforts of the indoors.
