With warm days and cool nights come outdoor fêtes, fire pit gatherings, and poolside respites. These indoor-outdoor spaces from the AD archives, whether a screened porch or a pergola-shaded seating area, are perfect for alfresco entertaining and relaxing without exposure to the elements. Let these rooms inspire your next plein air party (amazing vistas not included). Shown: Decorator Thomas Scheerer roofed the pergola with bamboo fencing from Walmart in his Bahamian vacation home; the stacking armchairs are by Janus et Cie, and the large pillows and the striped Crate and Barrel pillows are all of Sunbrella fabrics.
