The Ultimate Backyard Retreat

The Ultimate Backyard Retreat

Lisa Quinn goes on a tour of Sunset Magazine's best outdoor designs of 2012. The editor-in-chief Kitty Morgan shows us how to turn your average backyard into a fresh, modern and romantic living space.

Every year, Sunset Magazine holds their Celebration Weekend to showcase the best outdoor living designs, and this time they're sharing their secrets with Lisa!

A personal look at some of Sunset's most innovative designs to create the ultimate theme of "freshness."

Key elements:

  • A comfortable swinging bed works to make your backyard into a real living space. This modern version of a hammock is perfect if you have a good sized backyard.
  • A fire-pit can be a romantic statement piece to any backyard. It's also the perfect gathering spot for friends that will keep you warm into those cooler fall nights.
  • Lanterns help bring light to the outdoors in a very romantic way. They're cheaper than buying modern light fixtures and make your space a lot more intimate.

Pimm's Cup
Pimms Cup
In England, Pimm's cup is a must at cricket matches. Often ginger ale is used along with or instead of the lemony soda, and sometimes a fortifying shot of gin goes in along with the Pimm's No. 1, a gin-based drink that is widely available in liquor stores in the United States.
