Three Inspiring Outdoor Spaces
Spring has finally sprung! The days are becoming longer, the sun is starting to make regular appearances and soon we’ll be able to shed our winter coats and venture out to enjoy the great outdoors. In celebration and anticipation of the imminent warmer months, we’ve picked some inspiring outdoor entertaining spaces to share with you.
Designers Joe Lucas and Parrish Chilcoat of Lucas Studios in Los Angeles designed this high-tech California outdoor space for a professional hockey player. The result was an outdoor room that is both casual and elegant with a nice balance of masculine and feminine elements. The space has been fully outfitted for comfort, and includes a flat screen television, surround sound audio equipment, outdoor lighting and a fireplace.

Designer Sandy Koepke created an eclectic effect in this Manhattan Beach outdoor living space, by using antique pottery accents and a lush color palette. The homeowner is an avid home chef who wanted a top-of-the-line outdoor kitchen to meet his cooking and entertaining needs. To fulfill this requirement Koepke installed a Kalamazoo Hybrid Fire Grill, keg tapper, outdoor beverage center, clear ice maker, and wok cooktop. The end result was a luxurious, outdoor space which encompassed a self-contained, state-of-the-art kitchen, an elevated dining room and a lounge area surrounding a stunning fireplace.

Homeowner and chief retail creative officer at Ralph Lauren, Alfredo Paredes, collaborated with New York–based architect Michael Neumann to create this luxurious Manhattan rooftop retreat which was featured in Architectural Digest magazine. The space is divided into several different entertaining areas, including a lounge complete with comfortable teak furnishings, and a large area for outdoor dining. A zinc dining table is surrounded by vintage chairs, and serves as a focal point that clearly defines the space. Lush trees and plants add a sense of privacy while still allowing for panoramic city skyline views.
