outdoor room
 n.— «Many of us will be spending our leisure hours in the backyard—what has come to be called the “outdoor room.” “The outdoor room has been a growing trend over the past few years, so the selection, quality and style options of outdoor furniture and accessories have greatly increased,” said Noelle Smith, public-relations manager at Smith & Hawken. “With the economy and high gas prices, it only makes sense that people would choose to create their own retreat or outdoor entertaining space at home.”» —“Summer sanctuary” by Tim Feran Columbus Dispatch (Ohio) May 25, 2008.
