Let it be. Outdoor cabana living is done right in this Pine Ridge Estates home. Designer Provost says “our clients wanted a place that was full-on comfort. They let the teak go to it’s natural patina and I’ve never seen it look better. Works so well with the vintage doors which together with the neutral stone fireplace makes a great backdrop for accents in saturated tropical colors.”
