Backyards can be and should be enchanting places.  With the right seating arrangements, sunshade, landscaping, and water element, you can transform any space to be magical. No matter the time of year, being outside (glass of wine in hand, of course) with great conversation or even a good book can feel like a mini-vacation from our busy lives. In our latest series, Backyard Bliss, we’ll be showcasing some of the most luxurious outdoor spaces around Nashville for your ultimate inspiration for creating your very own backyard oasis.

Favorite feature(s) of your space:

Can I say all of them!?  I just love that the entire outdoor area feels like one complete unit.  The backyard encompasses the pool, dining and grilling areas, lounging spaces, and spa into one comfortable, enjoyable outdoor space for entertaining.

How you most often use the area:

We use the spa and covered area year-round, it’s so nice to come out in the chillier seasons and get to still enjoy the outdoor space.

The one thing you plan to buy or add this season:

We are in the process of adding Tuuci Automated Cantilever Umbrellas to go over both the dining table and the chaise lounge area. We cannot wait for this addition!
