This fireplace is open on both sides perfect for the open, airy feel of the background patio design. Smooth, round rocks build the interior with beautiful texture and height. A stainless steel border frames the opening and reflects the warm light. Through the opening you can see the streams of water flowing from the above fountain.
This large swimming pool with water jets includes a built-in hot tub and lava rock fire pit for the ultimate in outdoor relaxing. A nearby lounging area with diagonally set pavers complements the yard's striking geometric design, while verdant grass and white rose borders pop against the glittering blue water.
A negative edge pool is a beautiful fit for cascading down natural slope of the land. Mosaic tiles create pops of color shining through the water to brighten the natural tones of the design. A natural rock retaining wall with built in waterfall feature creates a textural contrast to the smooth patio tile.
A wicker headboard and chevron pattern rug add texture to the smooth, bright look of this bedroom. White roman shades blend with the clean white walls for a simple, uncluttered style. A natural wood craftsman style rocker faces the bed. The white bed linens are trimmed with a neutral border and topped with a decorative elephant throw pillow.

Squares of grass are set between concrete tiles to create a textural checked pattern in front of this cottage storage shed. The natural rock exterior of the shed extends out on the privacy wall encompassing the swimming pool. Flowering plants and shrubs create a planted border hugging the wall adding soft natural color and texture.
Tiers of sloping fences, stone walls, and shaped rock formations border a platform seating area patterned with inlaid stonework housing a stonework fire pit and benches. Accent lighting beneath the benches reflect upon the stonework and complement the pit's flames. Outdoor seating adds added texture to the scene, and provides views of the topiary landscape.
