This old-fashioned beauty brings unparalleled fragrance to the garden. Heliotrope (Heliotropium arborescens) is a native of Peru and is an annual in all but the very warmest regions (Zones 10-11). Also known as cherry pie plant, heliotrope has a complex fragrance that’s said to have notes of marzipan, vanilla, almond and cherry pie. Grow it in containers to keep the scent close at hand on a patio or deck. Or fill a flower bed with this blooming beauty to release a wave of living aromatherapy in your yard. Give heliotrope rich, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade (a little shade is good during the hottest part of the day). Pinch growing tips when young to encourage branching, and remove spent blooms to promote more flowers.
The ornate stone fireplace is flanked by large windows that let in lot of natural light to this Mediterranean sunroom.. Exposed brick walls combine with neutral tile flooring and comfortable sofas for a truly relaxing space.
Neutral Living Room With Floor-to-Ceiling Windows and Mountain View
This neutral living room features an open living area overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains in Asheville, N.C. The closed entry facade hides the impressive view from visitors until they enter the space. Upon entering, visitors are given expansive views to the south and west.
Manicured Outdoor Space With Dining Area And Swimming Pool
This backyard is ideal for outdoor entertaining, from the detailed landscaping to the swimming pool. Guests can enjoy a meal outdoors at the formal dining table for eight, a drink by the rolling bar cart, and a stroll by the pool.
This view of the island highlights the brushed-finished stainless top that has a smooth look and doesn’t show as many fingerprints or scratches as polished alternatives. The island top offers lots of usable space for preparing meals, unloading groceries and chatting with guests.
This galley kitchen in Decatur, Ga., was designed to be a functional yet stylish space that allows for effortless cooking and entertaining. Thus, the room features a deep sink and stainless appliances, gorgeous green cabinets and a wood dining table that seats six.
White subway tile spans the length of this bathroom, making the space seem clean and modern. To complement the look, the designers brought in a sleek mirror, floating vanity and glass door for the stall shower.
The design wish behind this living room: Create a peaceful space that feels contemporary and yet honors the apartment's original details, like the exposed brick wall and the marble fireplace. Muted colors help those elements shine. The coffee table is made of a vintage Moroccan brass tea tray.
