Casual Entertaining

The inviting back deck with different activity zones offers a place for casual entertaining, relaxing and enjoying water views.

Stylish Sofa

A pair of potted palms flanks each side of the back deck's white sofa, which has modern clean lines and seat cushions with quick-dry foam seat cores.

Creative Coffee Table

A 19th-century restored mahogany boat was disassembled and used throughout the house in creative ways. Here, the end of the boat with logo is converted into a coffee table for the back deck.

Modern Lounge Chair

A modern handwoven lounge chair with a black powder-coated steel tube frame and bold color blocks of blue, green, white, black and aqua provides flexible seating that can be easily moved where needed during large gatherings on the deck.

Chic Striped Rug

A large black-and-white striped indoor/outdoor rug anchors the back deck's main seating area and provides an easy-to-maintain surface designed to withstand the elements.

Enjoy the View

The deck's updated railing system with tigerwood handrails provides safety, but also allows views to be enjoyed from sitting level.

Posh Pillows

A pair of black and gray pillows provides comfort and adds color and contrast to the back deck's white sofa.

Touch of Nature

A selection of succulents that enjoy heat and require minimum water and attention add texture to the expansive back deck.

Adjacent Space

Dependable Deck

Color Combination

The combination of soothing slate blue lap siding and shingle siding with neutral tones, like taupe on the trim, gives the back deck and exterior of the home a decidedly coastal feel.
