Indoor Outdoor Dining Area

Secluded by hedges, trees and oversized planters, this poolside deck offers a serene spot for entertaining.The backyard of homeowners Rana and Richard Florida (the economist, urbanist and author) features an outdoor dining area connected to the interior by a rolling garage door, seen open here. Landscape architect Mark Hartley separated the quiet eating spot from the pool area with symmetrical plantings and herringbone-patterned brick. The creamy exterior paint, light wood dining table and silver chairs create a bright, sunny look.
