2011 Ultimate Beach House Side Yard Living Area
Photographer: Tria Giovan, Stylist: Heather Chadduck

The Side Yard Living Area

All-Weather Wonder: Sturdy teak seating (previous slide) and aluminum-framed wicker, which can endure through rain and chill, let this outdoor space be used like an indoor one all year long.

Made in the Shade: A retractable awning and manual roller shades made of weatherproof fabric offer protection from bright sunlight and strong sea breezes.

Eco-Chic Rug: With wide stripes, super-soft ribbing, and 50 percent recycled content, this indoor/outdoor rug is good-looking and good for the environment.

Hedge Fun: A row of tall, slender elm trees creates a privacy screen (with enough height to shield the second floor, too!); silvery green maiden grass beneath softens the fence with beachy texture.
