Climbing vines and mature palm trees reaching up two stories high give this incredible atrium the feel of a desert oasis. The mood is enhanced via detailed mosaic tile designs, a wading pool and ornately carved urns and columns.
A vintage pink refrigerator is positioned against a yellow wall on which are several small clay animals. Brightly-colored iron chairs sit around a rustic wood table carved from a tree. A mosaic tile counter and painted hood continue the colorful look.
Despite being in the city, this townhouse still manages to carve out a quiet slice of paradise: a beautiful backyard with stone walkways and trees. A tall wooden fence surrounds the outdoor space and offers some privacy from the neighbors.
Black flat river rocks ground a collection of small shrubs, variegated yucca and globed cherry trees in this contemporary landscape. A concrete walkway carves through the design, and granite orbs lend additional interest to the outdoor space.
A beige sofa and two white Eames chairs carve out a comfortable yet stylish seating area in this contemporary living room. In the corner of the room, a desk and chair are positioned by a potted tree and windows to create a bright, lively workspace.
Geometric floor-to-ceiling windows offer spectacular views of the natural landscape, making this room appear as though it's in a tree house. A hand-carved corner chair, an Oriental rug and Asian art above the bed give the space a collected, global look inspired by traveling.
Like something out of the fairy tale Aladdin, an amazing atrium extends off the back of the home, enclosed in glass with a ceiling that reaches up 22 feet. There's a wading pool with an ornate mosaic tile bottom, carved columns, a hot tub and palm trees.
To preserve a native oak tree, the Torrey Pines Landscape Company renovated the central courtyard to lessen water usage and create a background tapestry of plants appropriate to its microclimate. A Cameron flagstone patio seating area was carved out to connect to the original stone fireplace anchored to the home elevating the warmth of this outdoor living room.
Two natural tree-trunk coffee tables are pushed together to form the centerpiece of a farmhouse-style living room. The coffee tables, along with a crisp linen couch, a pair of mid-century wicker chairs and decorative pillows rest atop a speckled gray and white carpet, creating a host of textures in the neutral room. In the kitchen, a shiplap island anchors the space, while carved, wooden barstools continue the natural feel from the living room.
Amy has a way with mixing styles at home. In this reading nook a mid-century chair, a brass lamp from the '80s and a centuries-old carved stone fireplace come together seamlessly. Behind the lounge, two ancient tree stumps that have crystallized over millions of years are the oldest pieces in the home. And plants in earthenware pots reinforce the earth tone color scheme while adding to the nature-inspired feel of the room. Amy’s ability to layer neutrals helps bring pieces from various periods together beautifully.
