Just stumbled across this amazing backyard on Design*Sponge. It's the home of Meredith Kleinman, an interior designer and painter, and she has truly made me covet her home.
The interior is beautiful, but it's the exterior that really got my attention.
The wood deck is complete with shaded sitting area. The three sided bench is a great use of custom carpentry, and takes the outdoor patio to a whole new level, perfect for family use or social gathering. Of course there needs to be a convered dining area too. And don't miss the concrete work making the floor.
Then there is the small sunroom with amazing tiny tile work just behind the sitting area. I love the return of tiny tile installation like this.
Then there's the Japanese style bathhouse complete with outdoor shower. The sunny California weather is perfect for outdoor showers. And this one, complete with wooden Japanese inspired hot tub creates the perfect space.
If this doesn't inspire you to start creating your own backyard oasis, I don't know what will!
