Though the first floor of this home isn’t an open plan, the living room and dining room are close enough to each other to require a few connections in their design plan. The stripes on the rug, the polka dots on the table runner and even the triangle patterns on the wall in the dining room all have correlatives in the living room. And where there is the biggest difference - the complete lack of art in the dining room - all of the colors on the wall have been taken from the living room gallery wall, creating some beautiful visual connections.
This unique home office provides an unobstructed view of the outdoor park by using glass to create the desk. The green Eames chair mixes perfectly with the modern design and blends in with the floor-to-ceiling window.
A dramatic entry to the garden features large native and tropical trees to help hide the view of the property from the street. Horizontal fencing, sculptural palms and large masses of tropical understory all help to create the sense of a lush, expansive entrance.
Beautiful flowering plants and manicured hedges surround the sophisticated crushed gravel patio and koi pond. Hand-stacked stone above the waterfall mimic architectural elements found in other parts of the garden.
Pattern and texture bring layers of interest to this small and functional home office, from the herringbone wood floors to the paneled accent wall. A red desk chair stands out as the main hit of color in the clean, modern space.
