An incredible stone walkway and shelter connects this French country-inspired home outside to a bamboo garden. Lush plants and flowers fill planters and dress the sides of the path, creating a scenic garden atmosphere.
This garden's design focuses on foliage mixes and textures of perennials instead of aromatic plants, due to the homeowner's allergies. Plants used include native Eastern Redbud and Kwanzan Cherry. Fast-growing, semi-evergreen bamboo covers some of the cement wall.
Rich woods, paper lantern chandelier, bamboo plants and exotic artifacts root this dining space in Asian design. A distressed red credenza adds a bold pop of color along with an adjacent bright red vase.
This 1,672-square-foot Santa Barbara, California home features stunning tropical landscaping, including fruit trees, palm trees and towering bamboo plants.

The decor of this Asian-inspired bedroom has a nature theme, picked up in the potted bamboo plant, bedside lamps and the large artwork above the bed. A long low bench in front of the room's floor-to-ceiling window lets occupants make the most of the view.
A geometric painting on canvas sets the color palette for this breakfast area with the bamboo plant and brown furniture echoing the green and brown hues. The etched glass chandelier, circular rug and round table with chairs visually balance each other with their similar shapes and anchor the room.
This window design brings connection and functionality between the patio and living areas of the home. The large sliding window creates a dynamic space that can be opened up to accommodate more guests or just to enjoy the outdoors. The trees provide natural shade over a small patio and bamboo plants.
The elevated planting bed houses bamboo that will grow to provide beautiful cover for the front of the home. A dark wood entry is a beautiful warm-tone contrast to the white exterior walls. A spacious gravel driveway allows for easy maneuvering while plant life adds life and shade to the yard.
With small spaces, sometimes the sky is the limit. "Add verticality. Small spaces need an element to draw your eye up," says Derrick Lepard, founder of Cultivators Design and Landscape. When you add height, such as bamboo in a container in this Atlanta courtyard, you don't need to spend money on plants to fill every space across the fence or wall.
Using an earth-tone orange with pumpkin tones that has enough brown in it, keeps it from becoming overwhelming. Cream cushions tie to the seats of dark bamboo chairs for a soft finish to compliment the white contemporary table. A standing plant creates a pleasing green and orange color combo.
This is the front view showcases a beautiful landscape design that was created to withstand the Texas Heat and provide cover for the home.
