About This Space

This it our backyard patio that is just outside our living room. It can easily be viewed from the living room through the 12'-wide wall of glass and slider that separates the living room from the patio. Since the patio is right there "in your face" (from the living room), we want the patio to look like an extension of the house--like a large, inviting family room that pulls people in encouraging them to sit, relax and enjoy. Instead we have this cold, uninviting patio that we almost never use. It's so unappealing that I hung velvet drapes over the 12'-wide wall of glass in my living room so I wouldn't have to look at it. Please help me create a warm and romantic outdoor living space that my family and friends can enjoy year-round and allow me to remove the current velvet barrier once and for all!
