How To Bring Glamor To Your Backyard

Designer Katherine Newman brings her signature glamorous aesthetic to this formal backyard. See how she used a tiered design to break the large space into zones, creating intimacy. On the bottom tier, relaxed living reigns: a barbecue and bar area feel casual, while minimalist chaises are the perfect spot for poolside lounging. The second tier is devoted to outdoor entertaining; guests can linger over dessert at the elegant dining table, or move to the cocktail-ready sitting area, which is outfitted with low-slung armchairs for maximum comfort. At the top, a pagoda-like gazebo acts as a destination in the space — a landscape design trick that adds drama. Click through to see this beautiful backyard.
