With most of the interior lights on, this modern home exterior is particularly striking at dusk. The lights shine out through the large windows, emphasizing the light-brick and dark-paneled exterior, as well as the natural-looking landscaping.
The opulence of this swimming pool is not lost at dusk, as the sun sets in the distance at this Mediterranean home. The home itself features cobblestone siding, a cobblestone chimney and a covered porch that shades orange chaise lounges and brown rectangular planters.
Even at dusk, the Whitaker Bayou residence is quite the show-stopper against the lush, tropical landscape. Strategically placed palm trees frame the nearly 12,000 square foot home, which includes a six bay garage --perfect for the avid car collector.
Glass solar string lights can be stunning in the canopy of trees, above an arbor, or hanging from a porch or deck. The Aurora Glow light set, by Allsop Home & Garden, is made of hand-blown glass that is illuminated at dusk.
Designer Mary DeWalt selected a color scheme for this home--blue, green and brown--that she brought outdoors for masterful effect. As seen here at dusk, the soft beige hardscape surrounding the turquoise blue pool displays a serene aura against the blue sky and verdant landscaping, the same feeling that is imbued indoors.
Drawing inspiration from elegance of the home’s Italian Villa-like elements, this luxurious outdoor space transports family and guests to a Mediterranean retreat. Warming fire bowls and water features spring to life at dusk illuminating strong columns and arches surrounding the uniquely shaped pool. A circular, elevated infinity spa with chic mosaic tile anchors one end of the space while a crowning pergola with sofa and fire pit create an enchanted lounge space at the other.
