Since this space is designed for complete relaxation, Tiffany Brooks tones down the bedroom with soft neutrals and sea-inspired hues for this HGTV Star bedroom makeover. The graphic rug softens the hardwood floors and frames the space for the bed and nightstands.
Noah's Ark is infused into this little boy's room since that's what he loved. The wallpaper has animal prints in a tone-on-tone application to keep it from being too juvenile. HGTV Design Star contestant Blanche Garcia also accents with a sea blue hue that is carried into his bathroom.
We've got your summer succulent container right here, with a mix of foliage colors, textures and shapes that can take as much heat as the summer can dish out. Give ‘Sea Glass’ echeveria room to grow into the star of the show, and surround it with fillers like Pink Moonstone and jade plant, and let graptoveria ‘Bashful’ handle the job of spilling over the sides of the container. RECIPE: Echeveria ‘Sea Glass’ (Zone 9); Pink Moonstone (Pachyphytum oviferum, Zone 10); ‘Blue Burrito’ (Sedeveria ‘Blue Burrito’, Zone 9); Graptoveria 'Bashful' (Zone 9); Jade Plant (Crassula ovata 'Tricolor', Zone 9); Sedeveria 'Pink Granite' (Zone 9)
A luxury beachfront resort on the Sea of Cortez that incorporates some of Los Cabos' burgeoning sustainability efforts (the property even has its own sustainability manager), the stunning Paradisus features a program where hotel guests can observe and interact (with careful supervision) with a nesting colony for three species of turtles that the resort maintains to support endangered turtles. The resort also supports the local economy by regularly featuring area entertainers and hosting local artisans who sell their goods on property. The all-inclusive resort features seven on-site restaurants, but worth the trip even if you aren't staying at Paradisus is Michelin-star chef Martin Berasategui's Gastro Bar, a singular gastronomic experience.
