 Is it just us, or are those light pink cushions just begging to be paired with a glass of rosé?

Colorful Restaurant Bar, Los Angeles, CA

Mix up a cocktail or mocktail and grab a seat by this stylish restaurant bar, complete with inviting wood finishes and bold pops of teal and gold. We know you’re on the couch, but to your friends, it looks like you’ve snagged the hottest table in town.

Poolside Views, Scottsdale, AZ

Slather on the SPF and pretend you’re unwinding poolside at this dessert oasis in Old Town Scottsdale. Imagine cooling off with a quick dip—no floaties required.

Swanky Hotel Lobby, Los Angeles, CA

Sometimes you want to ‘see and be seen’ and there’s never a better spot than a swanky hotel lobby. Change out of those sweats and pull up this backdrop for a luxe night in (and if you want to keep the sweats on, we won’t tell). 

Chic Fireplace, Scottsdale, AZ

Happy hour heats up with a seat in front of this sleek, modern fireplace. The perfect backdrop for a cozy virtual get-together, we can almost hear those flames crackling and ice cubes clinking now. 

Table for Two, Scottsdale, AZ

Virtual date night? This little table tucked inside a mid-century modern lobby bar is the perfect backdrop for a good drink and even better conversation.  

Big Comfy Couch, San Diego, CA

Yes, you’re still on the couch. But now it looks like you’re on this plush, green sectional with playful throw pillows, not the sofa you’ve been working from all week. 

Sunny Outdoor Seating, Scottsdale, AZ

Bright sunshine, stylish seating and an oversized fire pit? Sometimes it really is easy being green.
