Concrete and gravel paths combine with concrete seat walls that edge the back of a main courtyard space in Sonoma County, Calif. The design by Nelson Byrd Woltz Landscape Architects was an American Society of Landscape Architects award-winning project.
Black flat river rocks ground a collection of small shrubs, variegated yucca and globed cherry trees in this contemporary landscape. A concrete walkway carves through the design, and granite orbs lend additional interest to the outdoor space.
Sublime sophistication perfectly describes this living room designed by Ana Donohue. For the entryway, Donohue chose unexpected pieces that all work together to anchor the space. A muted canvas hung casually atop a console table with wooden tusks indicates a strong but delicate sensibility that is carried throughout the rest of the space.
