We talk a lot about bringing the outdoors in — and feature a lot of beautiful, plant-filled homes — but the ultimate dream is to have a space that seamlessly blends the outside world and the interior of your home. True indoor-outdoor living is about more than just crafting a perfect patio or porch; it’s about blurring the lines between your home and nature in a way that lets you experience the best of both realities at the same time.

Nowhere is this style of living more prevalent than in California, and the modern ranch home of TV producer Michelle Nader in Los Angeles is a prime example. Sliding floor-to-ceiling windows in the main living space and master bedroom allow for a barely there boundary between the interior and outdoor living room.
