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 components intrigued and confused. However after I totally wrapped my head across the revolutionary concept and the Embello group invited me to come back on board as one of many designers—I jumped on board. Right here’s the inside track:

The Dwelling by Design Showhouse is a digital, interactive and totally shoppable expertise that’s created to encourage with recent, unique concepts and new merchandise from an unimaginable roster of manufacturers. Because the home is digital, there aren’t any sensible constraints, that means designers have free reign to design what’s new and subsequent in house 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 out of doors 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 area. And naturally, I designed all of it to be an area meant for intimate gatherings and bringing folks collectively round a desk full of scrumptious meals. I’m so excited to share the ultimate renderings of this area with you, and make sure to 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 individual house.

The eating desk

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

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.
