Sweeping stairs with wrought iron railing lead up to a gorgeous French Provencal home. The interior living spaces open up through French doors to the welcoming porch, where homeowners and guests have views of the California coast.
This beautiful and spacious master bathroom takes you through an archway to a soaking tub looking on to french doors that lead onto a balcony. The archway is echoed by the wall outside surrounding the iron railing. The natural light paired with a rounded glass chandelier create a bright, inviting space.
Contemporary double french doors open to an alfresco dining room on this gorgeous second-story stone balcony with a wood beamed roof. Furnishings are kept simple with a round glass table flanked by four neutral chairs. Potted plants line the railing of the patio and serve as a lush green frame to the desert view.
The exterior of this stunning Beverly Hills estate was renovated to add a more contemporary feel. The house boasts over ten sets of French doors and large glass windows let in plenty of natural light. Glass railings are added to the balconies to give that contemporary element.
Sure, a stained wood deck is nice, but treat it to a coat of black paint and the look becomes significantly more elegant. “Black is versatile and dramatic,” says designer Stephanie Wilson. “Here, the black decking and rail acts as a strong base for the white walls and window trim; the black French doors tie the decking and the walls together and adds a lovely element of symmetry.”
