A serene spa with stacked stone accents provides a great view from the living room of this contemporary home in Laguna Beach. Floor-to-ceiling sliding doors allow the house and resort-like backyard to become one. The palette both indoors and out is neutral, allowing the natural setting to shine.
The stone facade of this seemingly small home hides a multitude of space inside. A stone walkway leading to a simple door makes the space feel homey from the very start, and the pitched wood roof feels oh-so-rustic. The large plot with mature trees is a perfect setting for a quiet getaway.
This yard, designed by Cory Jorgensen, shows off the brilliant color of healthy grass and shrubs. The lawn is cut short accentuating the levels created by the plants and tree line. Concrete stepping stones wind down the slope of the yard and hug the edges of the decorative plants.
A concrete tile path leads over still water to the wood front door of this home. On either side of the pool, built in rectangular planters house palm trees matching the palms planted against the house. Yellow lighting gives the entry area a warm and romantic glow.
Concrete stepping stones laid in a rock bed create a simple and textural walkway up the side of the home and yard. Mulched garden sections add natural decorations and levels of plant life beside the crisp, cut uniform yard. An outdoor living room is situated on the patio complete with stone fireplace and chimney.
