Gabion Wall to Hold Off Erosion and Weather Resistant Plants in Desert Climates
This modern, Southwestern style home gets the perfect desert landscape. A gabion wall stands at the back of the yard, next to the foundation of the house to help curb erosion. Small flowerbeds then cascade down the yard along the steps. These beds contain durable plants that can survive the summer heat in this desert climate without much water. Instead of mulch in these beds, the beds are filled with rock to keep from having to grow grass that would require lots of water during the summer months. This way, the home's front yard is completely sustainable.
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.
