This lawn was once covered in pee gravel, which not only proved dusty, but also stuck to the paws of the resident dog. Since they decided to cover the area in synthetic grass the space is frequently enjoyed by two and four-legged friends.
Regardless of your stance on climate change you need look no further than your own backyard or at the water bill to see how the times are changing. In 2014 Arizona recorded the worst drought in its 110-year history of collecting weather-related data. Those statistics and perhaps a little guilt has led many in the Grand Canyon state to roll out the green carpet especially in areas (like around the pool) where grass can be difficult to grow.
Because New York City has fire regulations specifying the amount of SYNLawn artificial grass an occupant may use, the landscapers made an efficient choice by placing a simple children's play area atop a bed of the grassy stand-in. Children can play in this Soho backyard while adults enjoy a beautiful day outside in the pergola only a few feet away.
Aside from the kitchen, Chris planned to spend the least amount of money on his second bedroom, which would be used as an office. Taking the advice of a designer friend, he had the room painted in a blue-grey tone from Sherwin-Williams called Krypton and had custom draperies in a modern print made from a clearance bin fabric at $11.99 per yard. Since his laptop is pretty much the only thing he needs to work from home, the room was simply furnished with a vintage desk picked up from an antique market for $600 and paired with a black woven grass chair from IKEA that was $59. To soften the area underfoot, he installed FLOR tiles in a striped pattern, alternating each tile for a parquet look.
This rooftop deck offers several options for seating: You can cozy up on the sectional, recline on the lounge chairs or gather around the outdoor dining table. Artificial grass stands in for an outdoor rug and helps define the separate seating areas.
This sunny roof deck project features multiple seating areas, an outdoor dining table and a custom fire pit. A cedar pergola offers partial shade above Ipe decking and SYNLawn artificial grass, making this rooftop deck a perfect space for entertaining and sun bathing in the Windy City.
Like sun rays, a yellow chevron print stretches its way across the ceiling of this kids room. A textured area rug reminiscent of grass brings the outside in, while the hanging birdcage chair adds a fun place for reading or daydreaming.
The beauty of a neutral space is its ability to morph quickly with a change of accessories -- in this case, grass-green towels and rug. And neutral doesn't have to mean boring -- touches such as the backsplash with circular tiles and a subway-tiled shower with cutout storage area make this bathroom quirky and unique.
Color galore! The blues of the sky and greens of grass and plants make this eclectic living room come alive. Vibrant royal-and-white modern art mirrors the boldly printed rug. The comfy sofa is chock-full of multi-color, patterned pillows that can change with the seasons or on a whim. Personal effects -- scattered throughout the space -- provide a window into the owners' lives, and a large coffee table provides an ample area for knick-knacks and plants alike.
