Create Your Own Backyard Retreat

modern simple exterior pergola covered sectional outdoor seating with concrete round firepit

As beach destinations and resorts get bigger and better we experience what it feels like to sit in the lap of luxury through brief glimpses of vacation time.  These retreat vacations have only just begun to wet our appetite. So, why not create that relaxing cabana in your own backyard?

Make your next getaway a stay-cation by refreshing your outdoor design.  Christopher Grubb, President/Founder of Arch-Interiors Design Group LLC, shares his design with us that transformed this outdoor living space into a luxury retreat.

Hollywood Hills Backyard Retreat

The owners of this beautiful backyard nestled in the Hollywood Hills wanted a secluded outdoor space. They requested open-air shower ideal for rinsing off sand after a trip to the beach, or just enjoying a natural shower experience.

I designed this gently rounded outdoor shower wall and covered it with elegant glass mosaic tile (for options take a look at Glass Tile Store). Light from the adjacent fire pit dances off of the curved wall, providing a dramatic effect especially at night. I positioned the tiles vertically to emphasize the shower height and incorporated an adjustable, removable showerhead for ease.

The surrounding vegetation provides the natural atmosphere the owners desired. The space is a peaceful outdoor retreat with an atmosphere that’s excellent for both entertaining family and friends or enjoying solitude.

How have you created a retreat atmosphere in your outdoor living space?
