Temperatures can dip near freezing in Napa, but this massive fire pit is proof that Californians take their outdoor living quite seriously.
This little nook is the secret hiding spot we’ve always wanted, protected from the wind by mature landscaping and tucked away at the end of an idyllic path. We could easily spend many fall weekends here with a glass of red wine and a good book.
We love this modern, cabin-like abode in Venice, California. The blackened wood siding coupled with copper-hued accents and scrubby plantings create a unique setting. The oversize fireplace is stunning. We particularly love the contrast created by keeping the fire itself low to the ground while its chimney and walls rise to great heights above.
Another beautiful Malibu home, this time belonging to Courteney Cox. This may be our all-time favorite outdoor fire pit. The arresting ocean views, minimal decorative accents, and plenty of space to spread out all work to create a recipe for relaxation.
This hideaway is the perfect setting to enjoy with a few close friends. The intimate furniture arrangement is optimal for encouraging close conversation and ensures everybody has a spot close to the fire—critical to sustained outdoor hang sessions.
This desert abode reminds us that sometimes all you need are a few chairs and a warm fire. These essentials, spare though they may be, fit perfectly into the beautiful desert setting and only add to the home’s allure.
This cozy outpost situated on Martha’s Vineyard pays homage to the plethora of fieldstone found across the island by using rough column-shaped rocks as a casual fence and their boulder-like cousins as seating. The views of the fields, dunes, and ocean beyond are an idyllic setting to watch summer wind down.
