Colorful glazed concrete blocks brighten the wall as visitors approach the front door of this modern beach house. Underfoot, large concrete pavers are situated in a bed of loose river pebbles, carving out a walkway.
A mix of ornamental grasses, succulents and foliage plants create a colorful entry to this home. A gravel walkway cuts through the garden, with the low-growing plants, including a mature aloe vera, closest to the edge.
This city home originally had failing retaining walls and an unwelcoming entryway. After a front yard makeover, large, decorative boulders, new stairs and sun-loving plants now guide visitors to the front door.
The interior of the home proves to be just as interesting as the exterior, with large archways and light fixtures that feel like they're right out of Morocco. Colorful tile lines the stairs and draws the eye to the second level.
A black front door create a beautifully bold contrast against the white walls and ceiling of this entryway. Uncovered windows framing the door flood the space with light highlighting the already bright look of the design. A square rug adds decorative color lying beside a simple table and large wall-propped mirror.
Mosaic floors emblazoned with shells and sea creatures give this playroom the dreamlike feel of a sunken chamber. The circular space includes built-in shelving and a porthole slide that offers a unique means of entry.
A wooden boarder extends past the red window perimeters for an Asian-inspired feel to this courtyard area. The red outlines give a pop of color against the softer, neutral yellow of the walls. Bright green leaves from the gardens lining the concrete walkway bring the area to life leading to the home.
With the high arched ceiling and the neutral color palette in this entryway, the space feels large and voluminous. To make it fun, designers added a colorful, geometric chair to add some personality and color.
A cobalt-blue dresser with brass hardware sits in this colorful entry, providing additional storage. Blue and white ikat wallpaper surrounds the space with texture, adding visual interest and contrast against the clean white millwork.
