‘Little Volunteer’ Tulip Tree
Tulip tree (Liriodendron tulipifera) is a native tree known for its towering size (70 to 100 feet) and yellow, tulip-like blooms that open in summer. ‘Little Volunteer’ brings that stately beauty down to a size that fits modern gardens. Leaves offer an unusual shape and shimmer in the wind. Look for gold fall color and cup-like fruits made of seeds. It’s a medium-fast grower, reaching a size of 12 feet tall by 6 feet wide in 4 years (starting with a 3- to 5-foot sapling). The strong pyramidal shape looks elegant in winter, especially when wet snows stick to branches. This is one tree you won’t regret planting. Size: to 20 feet tall by 9 feet wide. Hardy in Zones 4-9.

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.
