The master suite project involved moving walls for a closet expansion, a bathroom gut job, and removing all traces of the dark, dated furnishings that closed in the space. We used a neutral base palette with soft blue touches and layered in heirloom-quality textiles, elegant lighting, and lots of texture.
Contemporary wood chairs are paired with neutral outdoor cushions and small striped pillows on this deck. Above, a metal and glass pergola adds cover, while an iron and wood cable railing encloses the space.
Orange fish scale patterned throw pillows compliment the orange hue in the brick patio flooring. The black iron outdoor living room set is padded with plush neutral cushions. Greenery surrounds the patio space including shaped trees framing the large window.
The bulbed, traditional frame of the chair is a beautiful design contrast to the more contemporary look of the metallic cocktail table. Neutral chair cushions add a subtle pattern to the room while a velvet pillow adds a soft pop of color.
“To create this peaceful retreat above bustling Center City Philadelphia, we selected natural materials and finishes to bring softness and comfort to what had been a barren rooftop,” says designer Barbara Eberlein. “Teak furniture does not need to be stored indoors during the winter,” she notes, and “direct sunlight is mitigated with enormous cantilever umbrellas.” Get the same effect in your own city sanctuary with a single umbrella and a cushy all-weather armchair.
Neutral stone tiles create a solid frame and thick sitting rim around this balcony hot tub. Five waterfall streams arch into the hot tub. Potted palms give a tropical element to the design fitting to the expansive ocean view. Glass walls leave the space feeling open and connected to the surroundings.
Neutral stone flooring stretches from the french doors of the home, down a small set of stairs and to an outdoor living room space surrounded by vibrant, lush greenery. Neutral cushions on all of the seating compliment the light beige floor tile and neutral home exterior.
Wood beams cross the neutral ceiling over the open archways lining this covered patio. Lantern pendant lights hang between the beams adding to the villa style of the home exterior. Wrought iron patio furniture is padded with beige seat cushions. A matching glass coffee table and small end table finish the sitting space.
A paver patio pathway leads to a stylish outdoor sitting space and continues down to a fire pit area with adirondack chairs. Beige cushions with a center tuft on the backrest pad the wrought iron chairs. A circular table with tinted glass top sits in the center topped with an oil lamp. Natural rock and plants surrounding the space add beautiful texture to the design.
Asian wood buildings create height to bring privacy to this calm courtyard. Neutral floor brings a light contrast to the dark wood stain. Outdoor wood furniture is set up for a cozy sitting space or outdoor dining area with green seat cushions.
Neutral walls and bed linens create a calm setting in this eclectic bedroom. Curtains patterned with blue, green and brown leaves add subtle decoration framing the large windows. A patterned yellow chair and two upholstered stool seats match the yellow throw pillow propped against the leather headboard. The unique striped base of the stools compliments the warm red glow of the hardwood.
Lounge chairs with neutral cushions are positioned next to this backyard pool, creating the perfect spot for relaxing. The adjacent cabana area provides a bit of shade, while tropical plants decorate the backyard.
