A well-manicured lawn allows for unobstructed views of a sitting area in the distance. At the same time, a variety of palm trees, shrubs and ornamental grasses ensure that the garden is rich with vegetation and visual interest.
Palm trees fill this tropical waterfront property in Lido Key, Florida. A well-groomed lawn surrounded by foliage plants and flowering plants are key elements in the front yard of the new two-story custom home with bay views.
Like something out of the fairy tale Aladdin, an amazing atrium extends off the back of the home, enclosed in glass with a ceiling that reaches up 22 feet. There's a wading pool with an ornate mosaic tile bottom, carved columns, a hot tub and palm trees.
Two palm trees frame the pool perfectly, and so draw attention to the gazebo at the edge of the water. Whether they want to relax after an afternoon swim or simply enjoy a meal beneath the stars, the owners and their guests can do so out here.
For this shared nursery, the designer wanted to create a gender-neutral space that was full of color and texture. The bright green wallpaper set a vibrant tone—and has the perk of being removable, should tastes or design needs change.
