Not only does this modern home boast a gorgeous natural landscape and a 75-foot infinity pool, but it also features an ultra-relaxing hot tub. The hot tub's concrete surround blends effortlessly into the concrete hardscaping.
A modern pool with a concrete surround and a clean-lined design is nestled into grassy, rolling terrain. Large stone pavers are spaced to allow grass to peek through, further connecting the pool to its natural, rugged setting. Clean-lined, modern chaise longues fit the design scheme and provide comfortable seating.
Eastern-medicine student Stacy Kon remodeled the inefficient master bathroom of her Los Angeles home into this relaxing retreat every bit as spa-like as the spaces in which she practices one of her passions: acupuncture. A lover of all things blue, Stacy chose a refreshing shade of robin's-egg blue for the walls and ceilings, a good match with the white subway tile. A large rain shower head is mounted above the oversized tub, and a glass shower partition installed on a swivel bracket swings back flush with the back wall when the shower is not in use. When the shower is in use, the glass partition keeps spray from the showerhead contained within the soaking tub. Rather than extending the white tile for use on the floors, vanity and tub surround, Stacy opted for custom, cool gray concrete poured into forms made to size. Dark wood cabinets provide visual contrast to the light blues and grays.
Angled roof sections on the home paired with a bright white exterior create a glowing backdrop for this simple pergola structure. The clean lines of the wood formation sit over concrete patio flooring. A wood fence frames the outer perimeter of the yard adding privacy and closing off the yard.

This covered patio looks out on a contemporary pool surrounded by concrete slabs that are separated by narrow strips of grass. Nearby tropical trees provide shade on sunny days, and a ceiling fan helps keep air moving on hot days.
Patchwork concrete tile creates a decorative flooring for the open patio. The stain on the wood patio furniture makes a beautiful statement against the surroundings. Concrete stairs travel through planted sections with natural rock retainers to the outdoor living pavilion.
The natural rock texture of the boulder steps and planter retaining boulders brings a great, rough texture to this backyard. The stones transition the space from the lawn and melt into the concrete walkway. Small mulched sections create a space for gardening to add natural decoration.
Trees, shrubs and planted ornamental grasses create a natural and textural border around this pool patio. A raised hot tub wall features a natural stone finish matching the stone used for the retaining wall. Open patio room leaves space for lounge chairs and umbrellas to enjoy poolside relaxing.
This white home catches the sunlight for a lovely bright exterior. A mulched yard compliments the roof shingles and allows the mix of plant life to shine. A concrete walkway moves through the plants and leads to the black front door.
Tall, wood columns frame the smooth, wood front door of this home. A concrete path leading over a shallow pool gives a zen feel to the entryway. The natural bright green of the plants add color to the space.
