This serene bathroom offers the best of indoor and outdoor life with its open air floor plan, including access to a private courtyard area. The mahogany wood-trimmed windows and doors add a rich accent, while the blown glass globe pendant lights over the freestanding tub provide a modern touch.
Imagine whipping up breakfast with this gorgeous garden view. The clean, rectangular lines of the kitchen island pull the eye into the adjacent courtyard where a wide-open doorway gracefully connects indoors and outdoors.
This beautiful master bedroom suite wraps around an interior courtyard accessed by large sliding glass doors. The roof of the courtyard is a large skylight that fills the space with sunlight during the day. A suspended fireplace was positioned so that it can be seen from much of the suite.
After the ranch house is demolished, this backyard patio area will be reconfigured as a elegant courtyard with access to a two story pavilion. The brick retaining wall topped by hedges will soon become a decorative stone wall housing a large fireplace. To the left of the fireplace in the corner will be a raised bed complete with palm tree and behind that a greenhouse. It might be hard to imagine until you view the next photo.
Designers wanted everything in this modern home to be connected, so they used glass throughout the design to create this synergy, drawing a line of sight from the front yard, into the home's interior and into the courtyard space.
