A redesigned walkway becomes a veritable art gallery for unique plant and flower combinations, which line the sides of this post-classical Pacific Heights home. Adding a dash of modernism, the bespoke furnishings and personalized architectural touches help to bring the new in with the old.
The entryway planter of this traditional home is brimming with eclectic and vibrant plants, including Pittosporum 'silver sheen', Liriope 'sunproof', Euphorbia, Boxwood, Helichrysum, Dietes, orange Abutilon and Heuchera.
Rich materials with various textures including the soft native trees and plants, coarse gravel, and smooth lumber, create an overall sense of balance in this front courtyard. The sculptural balls add an artistic element to the space.
Crafted in hammered bronze, adorned with gold flake and Murano style mouth blown glass details, the chandelier holds eight golden candelabras. At the ends of sprawling ruby red ribboned arms, clear, glass covered builds flicker above the table below. A Moroccan-inspired Siamese chaise rests elegantly in the corner.
The elements fire and earth meet in this vibrant courtyard with a textured living wall that frames the modern fire table. Formed from glass and concrete, this sleek feature contrasts against the soft, frilly and spiky textures of Lion's Tail, boxwood, purple oxalis, ficus and asparagus densiflorus.
A vibrant red Japanese Maple makes a big statement in this traditional garden. A hedge of ficus nitida lines the fence and is underplanted with soft and colorful textures like euphorbia, Chinese Lanterns, Hebe and Achillea.
