A beautifully-landscaped yard and paved walkway lead to this charming two-story Craftsman-style home. Craftsman style emphasizes natural materials — wood, stone and brick. Wide front porches and low-pitched roofs are typical.
A charming outdoor fireplace is accessed by a stepping stone path, creating a fairy tale-worthy backyard nestled fittingly into the Hollywood hills. Wide French doors allow fluid motion between the home's interior and its outdoor space.
A wide view of this modern home's backyard reveals its extensive landscape and hardscape. A retaining wall frames the edge beside a grid-like patio, and stairs from the porch descend beside sections of grass and mulch. The levels follow the slanted flow of the land for a natural look.
The wide design of this home paired with the long swimming pool fits the spacious feel of this backyard. Vivid green grass and tree life add natural color while turquoise pool umbrellas add a pop of accent. Evening lighting accentuates the reflective surface of the pool for a lovely finish.
Deep teal walls and an eclectic collection of art and textiles gives this Hawaii living room a richness of finish that complements the Technicolor landscape outside. Wide doorways open to the spacious lanai and backyard pool. Warm browns on the floor and ceiling bring a feeling of coziness to the airy room.
What a fabulous spot to take a dip! The rectangular pool features a wide concrete and brick edging, making sitting and dangling feet in the pool easy and fun. Lounge chairs and umbrellas are a must, of course! Landscaping is simple, allowing the natural trees around to frame the yard and home.
This dramatic front yard features a six-foot-wide waterfall that plunges five feet to the lower terrace. Surrounding this water feature, the landscape is adorned with lush perennial and annual gardens. Large stones create gorgeous shapes and textures against the trimmed grass.
Larger shrubs and bushes in the front yard provide some privacy to this chic gray-and-white home. In a unique architectural touch, windows group together to form a wide cross in the center of the house.
