This ranch home combines a variety of building materials to create an adorable cottage look. The brick siding, cedar shakes, slate patio tiles and stone planters mix beautifully with the swirled topiaries, pine-needle mulch and flowering window boxes.
Hints of rustic style are seamlessly incorporated into a more modern space in this dining room. The wood dining table would look right at home on the farm, but it meshes surprisingly beautifully with the nailhead trim blue velvet chairs, mirrored end table and globe-shaped chandelier.
Custom European-style benches are built into the hedges surrounding the swimming pool at the home of Anne Heche and James Tupper. A hot tub is placed at the end of the pool with custom decking that provides steps and additional seating, as seen on The Outdoor Room With Jamie Durie.
Designer Meg Caswell designs a contemporary urban oasis in her backyard patio. Furnishings, including an oversized sectional and hammock, provide cozy spots to relax, while an Indian oxcart is used as a one-of-a-kind coffee table and surrounded by comfy pillows for seating.
As seen in the HGTV Dream Home 2012, carpet segues to glazed porcelain tile flooring in the guest bathroom, where a 7-foot, quartz-topped maple vanity offers undercounter storage drawers. The dark wood finish gives this bathroom a masculine feel.
Host Jamie Durie of The Outdoor Room transforms the swimming pool area at the home of Anne Heche and James Tupper from an overly sunny and hot yard into a shaded garden fit for Hollywood entertaining. A wall of hedges provides shade and privacy, while the pool features a lounge-like gazebo on one end and a hot tub on the other.
Layers of lush plants complement the elegant architectural style of this luxurious home in Southampton, New York. The garden is framed by an emerald green necklace of trimmed boxwood hedges, which help separate the swimming area from the floral and herb parterres planted with lavender, roses and lady's mantle.
Popular with garden designers worldwide due to its ability to be pruned into many shapes, boxwood hedge is a perfect fit for topiary. It requires full sun to grow, so it’s best fit for placement in front of a porch or patio rather than inside of a shade-covered outdoor area.
Bright flowers and shrubs line the walkways, which lead to the entry of this lovely home. Black doors, shutters and windowpanes stand out against the bright white wood siding. Rock walls on the outside of the garage add warmth to the exterior.
This backyard patio is designed as a contemporary urban oasis. An oversized sectional makes for a relaxing outdoor hangout, while an Indian oxcart is used as a one-of-a-kind coffee table and surrounded by comfy pillows for seating.
