Water is the key feature in this stunning backyard, inspired by traditional Islamic gardens. A stunning pool with fountain, lined in beautiful neutral tiles, provides a relaxing oasis from hot summer days. A rock garden with blue flowing urns set is set in manicured green grass. A black table and chairs sit on the flagstone patio.
White and green is a universal palette that can transition nicely into post-holiday decorating, especially if you remove stronger holiday hues such as red. Karin Jeffcoat of Cote Designs, a floral and event studio in Aiken, S.C., filled small urns with fresh flowers, including white hydrangeas and dainty Star of Bethlehem.
After the holiday plates, platters and placemats are stored away, add a new element of greenery through fresh flowers and topiaries. The lemon cypress topiaries and Star of Bethlehem in urns provide a touch of green, whether on a table or on a mantle, says Karin Jeffcoat of Cote Designs, a floral and event studio in Aiken, S.C.
A trio of water urns sits near a pair of lounge chairs on this stone patio, providing ambient sound while enjoying a sun-filled day. The patio leads to a wood deck with even more options for relaxing and entertaining outdoors.
