Wood ceiling beams add warmth to the natural tones in this spacious living room design. Natural light floods in from large windows and a sliding glass door connected the room to the gorgeous lake view outdoors. Stacked stone surrounds the fireplace creating a large, textural fireplace surround structure.
Landscaping clearly articulates the entry statement even prior to encountering the front door in front of this neoclassical-style home. A row of cypress trees and paver driveway with a diamond grass pattern are as dramatic as the home itself.
A mix of high-and low-priced items and high-energy colors make for a striking living room. The slipcovered sofa opens up to reveal a full-size mattress. Seagrass wingback chairs and a rattan runner offer a touch of the tropics and a mix of patterns on the curtains and throw pillows creates visual interest.
This spacious courtyard has plenty of space for entertainment in style. A second level balcony leads down to the pool terrace, complete with a checkerboard pattern of grass and cement and plenty of established landscaping.
This fabulous courtyard finds its charm in its Mediterranean roots. Flagstone and grass pattern the ground, fabulous tall and skinny evergreens frame the home and a lovely square pond centers and calms the space.
Lush landscaping surrounds this luxurious tile patio. Monkey grass, small shrubs and a large tree add natural color to this beige space. A central fountain brings a lively touch while black lanterns provide ambient lighting for elegant entertaining.
Squares of grass are set between concrete tiles to create a textural checked pattern in front of this cottage storage shed. The natural rock exterior of the shed extends out on the privacy wall encompassing the swimming pool. Flowering plants and shrubs create a planted border hugging the wall adding soft natural color and texture.
This eclectic living room is alive with the blues of the sky and greens of grass and plants. Vibrant royal-and-white modern art mirrors the boldly printed rug. Because the room has such high ceilings, the vibrant colors don't feel constricting.
Aside from the kitchen, Chris planned to spend the least amount of money on his second bedroom, which would be used as an office. Taking the advice of a designer friend, he had the room painted in a blue-grey tone from Sherwin-Williams called Krypton and had custom draperies in a modern print made from a clearance bin fabric at $11.99 per yard. Since his laptop is pretty much the only thing he needs to work from home, the room was simply furnished with a vintage desk picked up from an antique market for $600 and paired with a black woven grass chair from IKEA that was $59. To soften the area underfoot, he installed FLOR tiles in a striped pattern, alternating each tile for a parquet look.
