    Nooks and Crannies
    Designed by Matthew Mosey

    For this Menlo Park home, architect Matthew Mosey, of Dumican Mosey Architects, seemlessly integrated the indoor and outdoor spaces, making it the ideal place to host everything from a birthday bash to a kid-friendly pool party. The homeowner furnished the space with Italian pieces from Dzine, such as Paola Lenti's outdoor seating, which are chic, but surprisingly durable.

    Durable Designs
    Designed by Lauren Geremia

    San Francisco-based designer Lauren Geremia helped this entertaining-loving couple create a party-ready space by using chic finds by local artists in tough, can-handle-it-all-materials. The Knoll sectional is covered in a durable heavy linen, a vintage factory cart came with a party-proof patina, and a porcupine quill mirror hung on the wall adds a funky vibe.

Lush landscaping with a tropical edge, Latin-influenced design touches and a long bench covered in vibrant weather-resistant fabric creates a private luxury retreat in the backyard.
