Above Tim Clarke transports us into a very exotic space with a Bali feel to it. The straw ceiling, wooden furniture pieces and fun fabric patterns really create a luxurious lay back atmosphere. I particularly love the lantern and front poofs seats.

Here, This is a very Hamptons feel with simple relaxing pieces. The pastel colors suggests pieces and relaxation.

Love this dramatic black and white outdoor space set on a wide field of green...! Perfect for golfing! It even has a roman style feel with the magnificent columns and drapes. The fabrics are fabulous with bigger and smaller patterns and make the design very interesting. The different lighting sources are multiple to create drama and glamour. Ceiling lights give the necessary light for evening stays but the candles and table lanterns really still the show!

This is a perfect corner for a quiet retreat by the beach

This fabulous design, great for entertainment, inspires comfort and travels. I can really imagine myself with a group of friends for a whole Sunday afternoon barbecue there until pretty late at night! The combination of pastel fabrics with interesting patterns and textures on the multitude of pillows and the use of beautiful furniture and accessories found throughout the world, create a very special outdoor retreat.  I love the suspended day bed with his peacocks on both sides. It is like stepping out in a magical world!

Fabulous English style outdoor terrace decor. The emphasize is made on very natural elements such as wood flooring and panels, rattan style chairs, and greenery. It is a very stylish clean lines design with a very soft palette of colors by the "Queen of taupe", Kelly Hoppen. I love the relaxing, collected style. Great for entertainment and and for a peaceful afternoon under the sun...
