My Out of doors Eating Area for the Dwelling by Design “Digital Showhouse”

Once I first heard the idea behind the Living by Design Virtual Showhouse, I’ll admit—I used to be equal elements intrigued and confused. However once I absolutely wrapped my head across the progressive concept and the Embello crew invited me to come back on board as one of many designers—I jumped on board. Right here’s the news:

The Dwelling by Design Showhouse is a digital, interactive and absolutely shoppable expertise that’s created to encourage with recent, authentic concepts and new merchandise from an unbelievable roster of manufacturers. For the reason that home is digital, there aren’t any sensible constraints, which means designers have free reign to design what’s new and subsequent in residence design. I used to be thrilled to hitch designers like Bobby Berk and Brigette Romanek, and fortunately I used to be tasked with a “room” that’s proper up my alley: the outside eating space.

I drew my inspiration for this digital design from the house’s west coast setting in Brentwood, California. I leaned into supplies that mirror the California-meets-Mediterranean aesthetic that I’m all the time drawn to, utilizing terra cotta, textural stucco, heat wooden, and tile all through the house. And naturally, I designed all of it to be an area meant for intimate gatherings and bringing folks collectively round a desk stuffed with scrumptious meals. I’m so excited to share the ultimate renderings of this house with you, and you should definitely head over to the Living By Design Showhouse site to take the virtual tour of the entire home. And be sure to enter for a chance to win $5,000 to improve your personal residence.

The eating desk

The eating desk is the guts of this room, so I selected a big farmhouse-style desk that’s meant for gathering and can by no means exit of fashion.

Setting the table

Of course, I set the table with earthy, casual pieces from Casa Zuma. I skipped the linen tablecloth so the beauty of the wood table could take center stage, but added texture with woven placemats and handmade ceramic dinnerware.

The lounge

There was plenty of space for a casual living area off the dining room, so I designed a cozy lounge that’s centered around a stucco fireplace. Built-in seating and low, lounge-y chairs create a zone for reading, talking, and chilling outside.

The pizza oven

You guys know that if there’s any way possible to add a pizza oven to an outdoor space, I’m gonna go for it! This luxurious version is definitely for my fellow pizza lovers, turning out authentic wood-fired pizzas like an Italian chef. The beautiful tile makes it feel a bit more polished, and concrete counters hold toppings, tools, and fresh herbs for garnish.
