Is this a garden, or a room?

This Middle Eastern-style courtyard has cooling, smooth tiles, which are just heavenly underfoot on a hot day. A wood-framed lounger and pile of cushions provide comfort and tactile contrast in a variety of blues that evoke the ocean’s depths. Are you ready to plunge in?
