Sparkling waters of the pool seem to curve and flow off into infinity. Stone, tile and concrete are featured in the multi-interest outdoor living area. Spa spillover provides added reflection and movement to the waters of this beautiful, naturalistic pool with Zafiro blue pebble tec.

The beauty of the natural setting is appreciated from the outdoor living room or the pool. The project's planning included cozy individual living areas for any season. The stone veneer gives a rustic, natural feel to the space and luxury outdoor furniture provides ultimate comfort and durability.

The walls of the infinity pool are totally adorned with blue glass tiles. Design drama is created with the addition of lighting at the base of this shimmering infinity structure.

Every element is a shining star in this outdoor living project from the hearth area to the pool to the casual dining area. Ryan Hughes Design Build's landscaping and accompanying lighting touches further punctuated each area. The green foliage offsets the dramatic blue glow of the pool created by the iridescent blue tile and led lighting.

Granite and stainless were used in the creation of the outdoor kitchen eating area under the pergola situated next to a favorite lounging area. Counter height swivel chairs create welcome seating for a cool drink and warm conversation.

A picture of paradise... as the overall plan for the outdoor space pulls together luxury elements for dining, swimming, and relaxation all within a cohesive outdoor plan.

The circular story utilized in the plan is even more dramatic from a bird's eye view with the pool at the center seeming to smile with the knowledge of the good times to be enjoyed here.

Landscapes, hard-scapes and soft-scapes are perfectly blended in the well-executed outdoor living plan.

With multiple luxury options for outdoor cooking, the outdoor kitchen is beautifully appointed with the mix of luxury materials from stone and tile to stucco and wood.

The spa is constructed with natural stone and concrete in concert with the beautiful blue glass tile. Well-placed planting areas accent the larger patio water elements.

Multiple levels does not deter the Ryan Hughes Design Build team as they craft a design plan for the optimum use of the entire homes' outdoor spaces.

Lounging and casual dining are within reach of the outdoor kitchen situated under wooden trellis.

The spa area includes a dramatic waterfall element splashing into the infinity pool.

9 outrageous fire pits you need in your backyard
By Katie Jackson

In prehistoric times, home life revolved around fire pits.
Today, roaring fires aren’t so much a tool for survival as they are a luxury for socializing. They extend your living area outdoors and, unlike pools, can be used year round. Plus, they're relatively low maintenance.
