Contemporary Outdoor Living

Architectural Digest featured this California home recently and I was instantly drawn to the clean, modern lines and the neutral colour palette. Living in southern Ontario I always dream about a home with so much outdoor living space year ’round.

The Texas shell stone that flanks the fireplace in the living room runs horizontally and the kitchen is designed in a similar manner with horizontal lines in the backsplash and cabinetry. Even though this home has a neutral colour palette the use of texture in the materials and the open, airy feel brings warmth and depth to the space.

What do you think? I could see myself curling up by the fire or lounging poolside. Could you?

  1. what a beautiful place.

  2. I absolutely love the pool area and how the back of the house opens up to it.
    And I can just feel the comfort of the white chaise in front of that fabulous fireplace. Awesome!

  3. I want to go there – at least on cold, wintry, chilly days like today!

  4. Ohmy! That’s my dream kitchen. I love the modern touch of that.
    Looks really fabulous.
