Terrace Sitting Room – This West Vancouver yard is divided into distinct living spaces, like this cosy sitting area. Make a vignette like this more intimate by adding an arbour overhead. Remember that backyards don’t always have to be swathed in grass. In
Lights could also just go from one side of the house to a central thing over the table. Like if I make a chandelier thing, that can be where they are gathered in. We'll see what looks easiest with the house.
I would love to have a section of garden-style courtyard on our next property. Someplace with rich plants, a moving breeze, and the ability for absolute privacy, then have an arched gateway that takes you to the rest of the yard.
