The creative process was to blend grays and whites with the existing espresso-finished vanity in this contemporary master bathroom. This was achieved with beautiful marble hues in those colorations, playing up the room's neutral palette. Asian accents work to create a master bath that is both tranquil and stylish.
The folly is an open-air structure fabricated and carved from solid reclaimed teak. Hand-carved Balinese ornamental corbels highlight the 14" square solid teak corner posts. The rich wood color shines against the concrete foundation, steps and the surrounding plant life.
Steps come up from the lap pool to this lovely pergola. The gorgeous wood structure shades an inviting seating area featuring two lounge chairs topped with thick off-white cushions and layered with throw pillows. Elephant statues, a golden gong and a vibrant dresser add an Asian influence to the design.

Designer Clinton Rice hunts at estate sales for Asian-inspired accessories and ceramic pieces, along with old books. He offers this advice for saving money: Go the first day — typically Thursday — but if you see something you like, wait for the weekend. That's when items are marked down by 25 percent or more. If it's meant to be, the item is meant for your mantel.
Create small groupings of like items that work well together and show your personality and interest, says Clinton Rice of Clinton Rice Design in Atlanta. By varying the height of decorative objects and grouping books for dramatic pops of color, Rice created a cohesive, classic bookshelf that is still functional.
