Outdoor living spaces have become almost a necessity for luxury landscape design. From backyard kitchens to gathering places designed to feel comfortable as another family room, you can choose from an endless variety of options.

Adding a grand stone fireplace to your outdoor living room creates a stunning focal point. But it also allows you and your family to use the space year-round. Summer evenings under the stars are always best spent having great conversations by the fire. On chilly nights, curl up with a mug of hot cocoa or tea to stay warm fireside while enjoying the peaceful calm of being outside.

Whether you opt for a built-in firepit or a tall fireplace; in the center of your living space or along the edge, you can have the custom-designed room of your dreams, right here in the Hudson Valley. Here are some design ideas to give you inspiration.
