This dining area is tied to its Big Sur location by its materials. A stone wall and columns support the logs and wood of the pergola roof. The roof, in turn, serves as a trellis for a grapevine. The sturdy plank table is surrounded by chairs that reflect the staves and hoops of the wine barrel planters.
The dark wood of this cube-shaped pergola area creates a shaded outdoor room. The two slatted walls of the pergola, one with a door-like entrance, define the space. The wicker furniture in charcoal gray adds a contrasting texture and color, while the white pillows and flooring introduce a bright note.
Though you can buy traditional pergolas in cedar, metal, and aluminum options, they all have the same general shape. Mediterranean-inspired with criss-cross beams and an earth-tone canopy is what you’d expect a pergola to look like. But if you’d categorize your style as modern and sleek, then traditional’s probably not the vibe you’re looking for in your backyard oasis. Modern pergolas have sharper angles, less decorative beams, and lend themselves to all sorts of decor.
This space brings the family library outside. The sides and arched roof of the pergola take cues from greenhouse architecture. The orange cushions, throw pillows, and drapes harmonize with the pergola’s wood while the tomato red pillow picks up the color of some of the books. The white pavers surrounded by the strips of grass add texture and pattern.
