See how one couple doubled their living area with stylish "rooms" outside
Den: Vintage wrought-iron chairs, rusted metal side tables, and brown cushions make this space invitingly casual and play off the deep brown fence behind.
A purple hop bush provides hits of red and orange. Raised a few inches above the dining area, the den’s floor is covered with pea gravel. A potted bougainvillea beside the garden shed adds vibrant magenta to this “room.”
Playroom: Frequently occupied by kids and dogs, this patch of lawn between the "den" and "dining room" also accommodates extra tables and chairs when the couple entertains.
