Outdoor Living at its Finest

Shafer Residence mediterranean-patio2Outdoor Living is a relatively new and rapidly growing lifestyle phenomenon. What is Outdoor Living? It no longer means just a few folding chairs, a picnic table and a hibachi.  The ideal Outdoor Living environment is creating a space with the same comforts and function as being inside the home.

HartmanBaldwin Design/Build , a fully integrated architecture, construction and interior design company, created this outdoor oasis.  Creating a space that was conducive for play and entertainment, HartmanBaldwin went to great lengths to make sure the cabana design complemented and acted as an extension to the original home’s Mediterranean style and architecture.Shafer Residence mediterranean-patio3

Their clients requested a comfortable living area that could maximize the views from every angle and a cabana that had a state-of-the-art kitchen, full television and media hook-ups, guest bathroom and enough shade to entertain a large group of guests who need a break from the sun.

Shafer Residence mediterranean-patio4Featured in this gorgeous setting shot, is Quoizel’s La Parra Collection. This stately look is influenced by Moorish, Spanish and Gothic styles.  The intricate metal scroll work is made of hand forged iron, and the handmade shades emit a soft radiance, appearing much like real candles.  This Collection has many coordinating pieces for different lighting needs.

Although this setting is very elaborate, you can create your own outdoor oasis on a much smaller scale making every summer day feel like a vacation day!

Quoizel offers a wide variety of lighting to complement your decorating style inside and outside your home.
