This outdoor space features stone steps leading to a raised patio deck with black chairs, circular fire pit, yellow accent wall with ceramic wall art, and a vibrant teal retaining wall which creates a soft transition to the naturally flowing perennials.

In the backyard of a garden apartment, designer Elizabeth S. Vaughan worked to add personality, using items that are easy to take along in a move. “Clients love when we add garden oddities like the bronze rabbit lantern on the steps,” she says. Note, also, the varied container plantings and color-coordinated chair cushions and umbrella.
Arched french doors and column framed openings line this home creating an attractive exterior surrounding to the patio. Giant neutral marble tile forms the patio flooring. A raised border, one step higher than the patio, lines the in-ground swimming pool.

A painted blue ceiling adds soft color and brings the blue sky to the covered porch. The concrete porch floor steps out onto an uncovered patio complete with wood chairs for seating.
The front of this elegant, modern house is made of mostly glass so that the homeowner can enjoy the view of the Hill Country that their home overlooks.

A set of grass covered steps leads from the main house down to the paddocks and barn area. To define this feature from the lower level, natural stone was added to the face of the steps.
