A concrete walkway lines the shape of the exterior of this modern home. Staircases create levels descending to concrete pavers through a patch of grass. A pond and mulched sections add beautiful natural texture and intrigue to the landscaping.

A simple but delightful dining table is surrounded by comfortable chairs; simple succulents on the table bring nature inside in a subtle way. Modern art is splashed throughout the room, adding elegance and color. A large staircase crowns the room, creating massive visual impact.
