If there is one area in home design that has emerged over the last several years it is outdoor living spaces. These stylish, chic spaces are well-designed and have become an extension of the home. However, make no mistake, outdoor living spaces are so much more than a yard. They are places to retreat, relax, and entertain family and friends. Want to watch football or make fajitas? No problem. Because, these functional living areas are equipped with flat screen TVs, fireplaces, outdoor kitchens, and dining and sitting areas. But, there’s so much more such as pools and spas, fire pits, gazebos, and landscape lighting.
After all, outdoor living areas are all about the lifestyle. And, you can view the finest in outdoor living during this year’s 2018 Parade of Homes. It’s happening Oct. 19 – Nov. 4 in the master-planned community of Travisso. Nestled in the rolling hills of Central Texas, Travisso abounds with breathtaking views and miles of nature trails making it the perfect outdoor oasis. But, what makes this year’s event extraordinary is that all four showcase homes use the topography of the Texas Hill Country to create statement making outdoor living spaces. Just to whet your appetite, before you go, we have a brief overview of each home and their amazing outdoor paradises. We won’t spoil the fun, but it’s the pools that are the real showstoppers here.
