A paver walkway leading to the pool is flanked by low water shrubs and mulch. Lounge seating beside the pool feature modern umbrellas for shade, and a long frosted glass wall ensures there's privacy from the neighbors.
A sultry game room was created in a bonus space above a garage on this lavish estate. A unique sitting area was formed by pairing a velvet patterned chaise longue, hand-carved pedestal side table and damask upholstered side chair. A hand-painted silk Fortuny floor lamp and mica-shaded tall candelabra provide the soft lighting needed during intimate conversations.
The walls were painted a warm, neutral color and custom-built furniture was brought in to transform the garage into a usable, relaxing space. Closets were installed to hide the garage door and to provide organized storage areas, as seen on HGTV's Love It or List It, Too.
The transition from the dining area to the lounge area is seamless thanks to a smooth gray flooring. To further reinforce that connection, the landscape architects kept each space within the same color palette, too.
This retro-style lounge area offers plenty of seating for entertaining. Wood paneling extends up the walls and covers the ceiling and features a contemporary light pendant. Brown leather arm chairs are paired with a large sectional couch which boasts a funky colorful pattern.
An impressive stone garden wall with circular cut-out provides a backdrop for a comfortable lounge area next to this South Florida home's pool. The circular window provides a view into the garden beyond which is planted with towering bamboo, Queen palms and Mexican Fan Palms. The elevated stone patio is the perfect place for visitors to relax poolside and soak in the sun on three contemporary, mesh lounge chairs.
After soaking up some sun on the deck, the owners and their kids can cool off in the pool. A blue tiled accent wall with three water fountains makes the space feel even more refreshing.
