For additional visual interest, the Landform Design Group added an accent wall to the far side of the pool. With smooth island stone and seven "scupper" fountains, the piece is both eye-catching and relaxing.
For additional ambiance, the landscape architects outfitted the garden with an accent wall that doubles as a cool, cascading water feature. Lush green plants all around further the sense of a hidden oasis.
To make the backyard feel as cohesive as possible, the landscape architects echoed details from the retaining wall in the home's columns. Thus, this pillar along the deck also includes a modern fountain and stone accents.
A niche with scalloped corners creates an artful spot for the clean-lined, upholstered bed in this contemporary bedroom. Stacked stone forms an accent wall, with a functional shelf built into the stone. A hallway with lighted steps leads into the room, with more storage built into the hallway wall, maximizing space.
This outdoor kitchen and barbecue area was designed around the natural landscape that surrounds this Palm Springs home. Stone flooring and wall accents along with a copper range hood add a luxurious feel to the space. Stainless steel appliances are hard-working and add a nice contrast to the natural landscape of the environment.
Even though it’s less expensive, manufactured stone veneer no longer looks like the cheap cousin of the real thing. Modern versions are durable, beautiful and natural-looking. Adding veneer around the bottom third of your home’s exterior will return nearly your entire investment, and because it’s lightweight and easy to work with, you can even do it yourself.
Designer Cindy Aplanalp wanted to create an outdoor space that matches the home's existing structure and accentuates its warm Mediterranean feel. Adjacent to the dining area, the outdoor kitchen is complete with a gas rotisserie grill, smoker, secondary gas burner and refrigerator -- ideal for preparing family meals or hosting parties, Cindy says.
This remodeled Craftsman home’s interior features crisp lines and a neutral color palette. Warm wood floors and cabinets stay true to the home's character, while more contemporary furnishings complete the dining room.
This home features beautiful curb appeal with fragrant florals and potted plants. Drawing on designs from the south of France, the entryway invites guests into the home with plenty of color from the blooming roses, lavender and and citrus plants.
