Contemporary Back Patio

There's no need for a patio umbrella when surrounding firs offer shade and greenery.

On the main level of this cottage, custom-made glass doors disappear into pockets in the wall to fully open the living room to the outdoors. Potted plants bring colour to the backyard, where the homeowners set up a casual dining area.
