One of the biggest design trends to emerge from the pandemic is designated outdoor living spaces. One recent report from found that in a post-pandemic world, outdoor living spaces will continue thriving, with 85 percent of experts agreeing that homeowners are now more willing to invest in outdoor living spaces. If you need some additional persuasion as to how great this trend is, Gabrielle Union just showcased her own outdoor living room.

On Sunday, the actress shared a few adorable videos of her daughter, Kaavia James, dancing outside of the sprawling mansion she shares with her NBA star husband, Dwyane Wade. Sure, the infinity pool was jaw-dropping, as was the staggering view of Los Angeles in the background. However, from a design standpoint, it’s hard to stop staring at her gorgeous outdoor living room. 

Tastefully designed like any indoor living room, the space is perfection. Furnished with dual matching sofas and a small coffee table, it also includes a flatscreen television, a fireplace, and shelves lined with baskets and gorgeous window treatments, offering a dose of privacy when needed. Next to the living room, there is what appears to be an outdoor grill, concealed by a countertop space with enough room for four people to dine al fresco. 

This isn’t the first time Union has impressed with her incredible home, from the acrylic chairs to her dreamy boucle sofa and fluffy armchairs. And then there is the stunning tropical mural covering her daughter’s bedroom walls… it’s a no-brainer to get onboard with her home style.
