Tropical Deck With Thatched Roof
Subtle variations in color and a few tropical touches animate this covered deck. A thatched roof shades an outdoor seating area complete with a gold sectional, striped ottoman, hammock chair and coral decor.
Natural daylight shows the true colors of the plaster and stones used in this pool design. Scenic Landscaping chose brighter decking materials, tiles and stones to make the outside feel resort-like and bright and bold.
Lounge chairs were placed off the patio onto the lawn checkered stone area to allow more space poolside. The stones for the checkerboard pattern look nice poolside even in the wintertime when the furniture is put away. This was a last minute addition that really tied the design together.
Once the sun goes down, the entire project transforms into new colors and a whole new dynamic of warmth and wow.
Night lighting creates a brand new experience, instantly transforming the space with bright fire elements and the warm lighting from the steps and pool.
As the sun begins to set, the colors of the backyard pool become more vivid, making the pool look even bluer. The custom stone wall features a fireplace inlay that can be enjoyed at the poolside lounge area.
To keep the backyard consistent with the interior of the home, the designers outfitted the raised deck with furniture in similar colors, like blues and corals. Here, cushioned lounge chairs offer space for sunbathing, while synthetic turf below gives the clients' children room to tumble.
Enticing Home Exterior With Brick Driveway and Walkway, Arched Wood Front Doors and Garden Framed Entrance
A brick driveway extends into a walkway toward the entrance creating a gorgeous, textured base for the exterior of this home. Mirrored garden sections and potted trees frame the way to the arched front door. Outdoor sconces cast a warm glow to brighten the home.
A vivid, tropical palette and lush landscaping surrounds this secluded estate in Omao, on the southern side of Kauai. An infinity-edge pool in the home's backyard overlooks a breathtaking valley landscape.
This peaceful porch from HGTV Dream Home 2013 features a slanted wood beam ceiling coupled with brown hardwood deck flooring. Two outdoor rattan chairs and ottomans with brown patterned cushions provide the perfect spot for kicking back and taking in the palm tree view.
This ranch style home features a neutral stone exterior and a dark gray metal roof with rain chains instead of gutters. Like the exterior, the walkway is designed from a neutral stone, leading the way to the mahogany front door. Palm trees and other tropical plants are used for landscaping throughout the front yard.
This lush private garden is located in South Florida between Coconut Grove and downtown Miami. Although it is in an urban environment, its dense, tropical foliage and the calming sounds of trickling fountains create a perfectly serene and secluded sanctuary.
