A selection of hydrangeas add a burst of color to the front yard of this approximately 2,056 square foot updated urban home, part of the new landscaping that also includes plants, shrubs and trees that bring lots of natural beauty to the property.
Lush wildflowers and grasses line the walk to the front porch and add natural beauty to the front yard of HGTV Urban Oasis 2019. The home is located across from a local park and is easy walking distance from local restaurants and shopping.
This framed photo of an Icelandic horse with blonde mane in winter in front of the ocean hangs on a wall in the nook. This wall art with natural beauty includes all the different shades of icy blue, white, mustard and natural tones that were used in this home to celebrate the Scandinavian countries that make up the culture of Minnesota.
The handmade, pedestal-style dining table with an oak top and natural concrete base has an architectural and modern look that fits perfectly with the overall design philosophy of this urban home located in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Live oak trees that twist all around the front and back of the property were incorporated into the landscape design with Palisades Zoysia, a medium-broad textured, high-density turf noted for its shade tolerance and low water-use requirements. “Hilton Head Island is a preservation community and they want to keep all the trees they can,” says build manager Scott Branscom. “These live oak trees with Spanish moss are very beautiful and definitely something you want to keep.”
A gentle stream flows through the heart of this backyard, highlighting an array of lush vegetation and vibrant annuals. Anyone who wanders around here will certainly feel compelled to stop and smell the wildflowers.
This sitting area uses natural beauty to enhance the colors in this space. The tree by the French doors brings a vibrant green into the space, while the yellow flowers add a pop of color to the middle of the room. The natural green and yellow of the plants blend well with the pink sofa and the yellow couch cushions. To tie the space together, a multicolor rug rests under the coffee table.
Looking out over this beautiful hillside, this home complements the beauty of the region instead of competing with it. Materials used in building this home appear to have a "grain", which flows with the topography of the surrounding countryside and feels as if it is one with nature.
To help add dimension to these curved walls, designers added small shelves to help highlight the natural aspects of the space. Showcasing greenery, the shelves bring even more beauty to the riverbed-inspired spa bathroom.
Designers wanted to capitalize on the beautiful mountain views outside the windows, so they kept the interior design neat, crisp and simple, yet still elegant. The living room in this space is no exception to that vision. Lots of windows allow plenty of natural light into the space, allowing patrons of the room to see outdoors to the beautiful mountain views. The light reflects off the gray walls, bringing the natural green tint of the trees indoors. Blue and gray furniture occupies this space and highlights the natural hues of the mountainside, making the living room feel as if it were a part of the mountains that surround it.
