A bird's eye view of the rear stone patio and steps shows us the details in the design. Built-in lighting along the steps helps to create guidance and a warm glow at night. The use of Acer palmatum, or Japanese Maple and Heuchera help to soften the edges of the textured and smooth stone.
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. Exterior lighting and a large patio with steps make the home's access to its hilly surroundings much easier to navigate, further connecting this home with its beautiful environment.
Dark polished wood steps match the handrail leading down this twisting staircase. A diamond shaped pendant light hangs above to brighten the space and fill the high ceiling. A striped runner adds vivid color to the design while framed artwork and mounted trinkets decorate the white wall space.
This dreamy backyard look is great for all ages. A wood stage-like set up between the two large trees connects to the stairs leading into the treetop patio. Lights strung between the trees give off a warm glow providing light for playing and enjoying the space.
Large, shallow stone stairs transition from the sidewalk to the entry of this enchanting Italian style home. The light neutral exterior is beautifully complimented with rich wood details like the entry gate, front door and garage door. Shrubs, trees and grass add lush, natural color and create levels in the landscaping.
A trio of pendant lights featuring mixed 3D shapes are layered at varying heights to fill the space of this two-story open staircase ceiling. Wire railing secures the space while keeping with the open feel of the design. Black metal balusters and hand railing fit the contemporary style with a touch of industrial influence.
The designers created a more open and inviting landing to the lower level of the home. A custom railing on the existing stairs allows light from the main floor to drift downstairs. Powder-coated metal pairs with a white oak handrail.
Black railings contrast beautifully with the glass banisters and hardwood stairs of this custom staircase. Large windows behind the stairs fill the room with natural light during the day, and pendant lights hanging form the tall ceilings provide light at night.
