Situated in a natural clearing of a large grove of aspen trees, this Wyoming home's landscape design makes the most of its wetlands and natural water courses. A breezeway connects the front drive, barn and main house.
A stunning pergola draws you into the shade of this concrete patio. With wood and stone construction, the pergola is a rustic accent to the Mediterranean-style chandelier and lush landscaping. Timeworn patio furniture creates a cozy seating area with bright red pillows.
Arizona flagstone pavers and steps help blur the boundaries between the natural and constructed environments, and between the hilltop and the house. This 10-acre property is on a ridge-top setting with views of Mount Diablo in California. The project by David Thorne Landscape Architect won a 2015 Association of Professional Landscape Designers award.
Inspired by the farm and landscape, rustic wood paneling is used on the top half of the walls in this guest house's media room. The lower half of the wall is painted a cool gray, blending perfectly with a comfortable sectional. The Union Jack symbol and colors add a touch of English love to the space.
