Gorgeous and Functional Outdoor Living Spaces
The most well-designed outdoor living spaces serve as extensions of our home and life. These spaces need to work not only as outdoor rooms that are beautiful, but fulfill a purpose!
Whether you already have an outdoor room or are dreaming of creating one someday, I hope you love these gorgeous and functional outdoor living spaces as much as I do!
Ever since visiting my aunt and uncle on St. Thomas USVI back in college and seeing all of their gorgeous outdoor living spaces, I’ve been fascinated with the idea of outdoor rooms. They had 3 different dining “rooms” outside and the whole home was an open concept. When you walked through the front door the back door was open to a view of the bay below. But I was most intrigued by their outdoor laundry “room,” which was merely one wall of a covered patio and a washer a dryer. So fun!
I hope you’ll find the same inspiration with these amazing outdoor living spaces!

Very good idea on outdoor living space. I like it and thanks for sharing!
Like the couple on your list above we are looking at adding a “theatre” to our outdoor living space. We’ve considered a screen and projector combination like them but have decided to go for an outdoor TV. My patio is partially covered and while the set will never get “soaked” it will undoubtedly get wet from water being blown in during storms. I’ve been looking at the TVs listed on this page: https://www.outeraudio.com/outdoor-tv/ . Have you got experience with brands or sets that you’ve worked with in the past and can recommend? Thanks in advance!
I have a tv under my Gazebo. Got an electric tv mount that raises and lowers it. When not in use, just raise it. It lays flat up against the interior gazebo roof. I dont even have an outdoor tv just a regular one and have never had any trouble.
I have VIVO Electric Ceiling TV Mount for 23 to 55 inch Screens, Flip Down Motorized Pitched Roof VESA Mount, MOUNT-E-FD55.
