Outdoor decor: Modern rustic rooftop terrace
Create a contemporary outdoor living space in your backyard oasis for relaxing or entertaining guests.
Modern rustic backyard
The contemporary rustic persona of the space comes from natural Western red cedar decking and cladding and chunky teak furnishings with durable outdoor fabrics. Wood strapping was applied to much of the terrace's concrete structure to lend texture and warmth. In a clever move, Kara had custom metal trays made to fit overtop of the lounger when it lies flat, creating a coffee table for setting down drinks and hors d'oeuvres. She also added a long planter of yew that created a hedge-like backdrop, while oversized planters with Japanese and fragrance and a lush leafiness to the space.
