Houzz is the new way to design your home.
Rachelle Martin's ideas
We really love the look of the Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet photos. It reminds us of a place we sent to outside of Florence, where we were invited to an awesome, home-cooked meal with a bunch of friendly Italians.
it just looks like Tuscany/Italy. This would make me feel as if I were back there!
I like the bench seat!
I love the idea of a covered area, with a fireplace.
I like the blend of hardscape with plants, and again the bench-type seating area.
ditto on the one from the arial view. I'm not a fan of the very defined edges, though--too modern for me. I don't like things to look quite so geometric.
I like all the casual seating/relaxing elements
I just love outdoor living spaces!
I'd love to be able to occasionally jazz up our backyard with some classy string bulbs
I like fun little spaces away from a main space, to draw people out into the rest of the yard
This just looks like a fun outdoor space, integrating plants into the area, which I really like.
I love porch swings! They're fun for the whole family.
I love porches & outdoor ceiling fans & hanging baskets
I realize this look may not be possible with our limited space, but I like the idea of a little path, maybe even leading to the trees behind our property. It just makes you want to go exploring!
I like how the hot tub is integrated into the area, but also made private with the panels
