Prop up container plants on unexpected items, such as an old three-legged stool, to add height to a tabletop display. Although these plants are in the covered indoor space, the floral display could be moved to the balcony as well.
This property started out as two separate lots. The new owners decided to build two separate structures on the large piece of land: a main residence and a guest house with shared outdoor space in between. Both buildings have an indoor outdoor feel, with oversized sliding doors instantly connecting rooms to patios and balconies.
This luxury estate in California has a backyard made for entertaining, with a pool and spa featuring a jetted water feature, a pool house, a large covered patio and a barbecue pavilion. A large wall retracts between the indoor and outdoor space, while balconies stretch along the second level, allowing the owners and guests to enjoy the outdoors both upstairs and down.
The lower level of this home, replete with glass doors and windows, opens conveniently onto the pool area, which serves as the perfect place to play as a family or with friends. The ease of access between the two spaces allows for a seamless transition from indoor to outdoor. The second floor of this home has an elegant balcony that allows homeowners to overlook the pool and their view, so that they can be a part of the excitement without being in the middle of it.
