Designer Jamie Durie framed this outdoor dining room by incorporating a large backyard pine tree into a stone wall. The benches are made of simple fallen tree trunks, an easy, inexpensive way to create gorgeous outdoor seating. Author, television host and environmentalist Jamie Durie pioneered the idea of outdoor rooms in his native Australia. Durie’s love of nature guides him in creating outdoor living spaces that expand homes to the outdoors. Trained as a Climate Project Presenter (with former Vice President Al Gore), Durie lectures about environmentalism around the world. He designed this outdoor space for a Wyoming family. His book, JamieDurie’s The Outdoor Room, is available at jamiedurie.com.

Designer Kathryn Ireland converted an old barn at her farmhouse near Toulouse into a rustic open-air dining room. It looks straight out of the movies, doesn’t it?
