Contemporary Patio with Boxwoods, Pavers, Brick and Plexiglass Screen
Boxwoods, such as the 'Green Mountain' boxwood on the left side of this contemporary patio, are wise, cost-concious purchases for courtyard shrubs because they have handsome foliage and grow to 3 feet high by 3 feet wide. Also, layering is a part of outdoor design. A plexiglass panel is front of a cedar fence in this patio by A Blade of Grass, which won an Association of Professional Landscape Designers award. A plexiglass screen also can be a DIY project.
Moroccan tile transforms an everyday staircase into a beautiful, bohemian display. At the top of the stairs, a woven wall hanging accentuates the well-traveled look and adds a dose of texture to the room.
White, Open Plan Kitchen From Sarah Sees Potential
As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, Sarah turned a cramped main floor into a gorgeous, open plan kitchen, dining and living space. A dividing wall was removed and converted to a gourmet kitchen island with extra seating and storage. Antique white corbels and vintage wedding cake fixtures add a touch of elegance while a fun mosaic tile backsplash lends youthful charm to the bright space.
