So this is what the Airbnb listing meant by “picturesque sunset views.”

Set high atop the tree line, this deck displays every hallmark of elegant living. From the drop-down picture screen to the lazy deckchairs, flat-couches and minimalistic low-set table, the designer has done a great job of transforming a basic outdoor area into a space that you won’t want to leave.
With a view which exceeds expectations, this deck delivers ample space, an adjacent overhang, and tranquility which is unsurpassed. A screen supplies beautiful scenery, albeit brash, during the day, lightening the atmosphere and ambiance of the area under artificial light at night.
One can see the deck extending towards an adjoining room, with the division wonderfully achieved through nothing more than variating the type of wood used for the flooring. Working well under natural sunlight, the dark, hardwood flooring is a great choice for outside, working extremely well with the black supports, security fence, and choice of furniture and fixtures.
All that it would take to switch styles once you have grown used to the luxury and elegance is a change of the drop-down picture, and the placement of a few colorfully clad items of furniture. The basic hues help design diversity immensely, with the spacious layout also assisting your possibilities.
