An Outdoor Space Designed for Making Memories

It was all about the grandchildren for these clients! They wanted a backyard with a resort-like feeling that would be catnip for the little ones and their friends through their teen years and beyond.  They pictured a resort-like experience with an exclusive vibe consistent with their upscale suburban Chicago backyard, bordering a golf course. In addition to choosing all outdoor furnishings, they asked me to review and revise the blue prints for the combination pool house/kitchen with an eye toward improving function. 

On their wish list: 

  • An “outdoor theater” for movie moments  with the grandkids
  • Multiple inviting lounge areas
  • Maximum seating at the bar
  • A “wow” factor
  • Design elements that extend the season from early spring to late fall
  • Wellness features
  • Exterior décor that is as luxurious as the interior of their home

Now my client says that he feels like he is on vacation at the Four Seasons Resort every time he steps outside.
