In late winter, this evergreen shrub or small tree, Pewter Pillar® Winter’s Bark ( Drimys winteri var. chiloense), opens clusters of lovely white blooms followed by small fruits. The glossy leaves have silvery-white backs. The plants are hardy in USDA zones 7 to 10.
With its reclaimed wood ceilings, thick pillars, golden siding and terra cotta floors, this guest house thoughtfully complements the main house. In turn, the different pieces of the property look as cohesive as possible.
Oversized odd-shaped stones make for an eye-catching garden pathway on the grounds of this La Jolla, California, home. The path leads through the stonework archway of a trellis canopied and consumed by an overgrowth of wildflowers and topiary features. The multicolored stonework columns complement the textured walls of the home.
The courtyard terrace of this Point Lorna, California, villa home features neutral furnishings that complement the simplicity of the architecture that encompasses them. Wicker sofas complement the texture of earth toned pillars set in the terrace's archways which are climbing with flowering vines reflected in the pool below. The vines allow the garden's topiary features to traverse the pool the way a footbridge allows passage below.
A curved bar with glass cabinets creates a surprising visual centerpiece to this elegant open floor kitchen and provides a fun place to showcase glassware. Pillars break p the space from Callcatta Quartzite countertop to ceiling, which appears seemingly detached due to the illumination from recessed lighting in the molding. Shimmering pendant lights and chandelier illuminate the floral accents and island.
