outdoor spaces

Influenced by the indoor-outdoor lifestyle of Southern California and the clean-lined architecture of Tadao Ando, decorator Eric Hughes created a minimalist terrace for entertaining at his house in Wainscott, N.Y. The furniture has a modern Asian look, amplified by a pair of colorful ceramic stools from Mecox Gardens; the fireplace wall is poured concrete. (Photo: Roger Davies)
