An Australian hardwood known as Yellow Stringybark provides the decking and steps in this stunning patio/pool combination from COS Design with landscaping by Signature Landscapes, pool by Serenity Pools.
The entrance to the home exudes elegance. An arched mahogany front door matches with the hardwood floor and winding staircase. A pair of candelabra chandeliers and a piano nestled in the corner completes the timeless design.
Ipe decking, a type of Brazilian hardwood, is used for a wide set of stairs leading onto a screened porch designed by Clark Harris of Innovative Construction, based in Roswell, Ga. Pocket doors maximize the porch space and create a unique entryway.
Wisps of vines and blooms decorate the walls of the foyer, taking the traditional architecture of the home in a fresh, contemporary direction. The wallpaper's color also picks up the warm tones of the hardwood floor.
