Outdoor living has come a long way from Ralph Waldo Emerson's "Walden Pond." There's no "roughing it" outdoors these days. Instead, designers are finding inspiration indoors and bringing it outside, including everything from flat-screen TVs and overstuffed couches to billowing curtains, outdoor kitchens and walls of shrubbery that give the illusion of a room. Designers have even found ways to extend the outdoor living season by adding ceiling fans, heaters and outdoor fireplaces. The sky is literally the limit for your outdoor space design.
