Spot for a top chef. There are so many good things to say about this side garden design, but the most important one is, "Please invite me over for a meal!" From the modern arbor's slender profile to the mixed flooring of concrete and gravel, this space makes use of every inch, top to bottom.The L-shaped banquette to the right provides seating for lots of people and doubles as a low wall that divides the courtyard from the dining area. The bar/cooking area faces the party (a nice way to keep the chef engaged with guests). I love the thoughtful addition of twin pendant lights suspended from the arbor to illuminate the food-prep area and the large mirror at the back, hung on the outside wall to reflect light and greenery into the space.Now, what's for dinner?
