Tudor Exterior with Pavers
Pavers in a quatrefoil design, repeated from this home’s Tudor-style architecture, is a focal point of the motor court. Reclaimed street pavers are used for the front drive, as well as, the back patio. The scale of the motor court was defined and softened with boxwood hedging and large lindens spaded in. The home in Glencoe, Ill., was an Association of Professional Landscape Designers 2015 Landscape Design Award winner.
Inspired by texture, this charcoal bedroom by B.D. Jeffries Design Group for a Southeastern Designer Showhouse in Atlanta takes a glamorous turn with sleek gold-leaf accents, including the papier mache vessels on the walls. Horizontal stripes and sharp angles add visual interest to the composed, tranquil space.
French doors from the master suite lead to this spacious outdoor seating area. A mix of seating and matching tables are the perfect place to curl up with a cup of coffee or relax at the end of the day with a glass of wine.
Attention to the outdoors continues in the master bathroom, where the shower opens onto a private balcony. Glass doors allow the owners to soak up the views and natural light from anywhere in the room.
Light blue walls work wonders in this teen girl's room, creating a relaxing atmosphere for reading or doing homework. A palm-print tryptic adds interest to the bed, as well as complements the other boho touches, like the woven throw and ombre ottoman.
Low Stone Wall Makes Outdoor Sitting Area Feel Secluded
A low stone wall surrounds this patio, making the space feel intimate for conversations. Meanwhile, willowy trees provide some relief from the hot summer sun and ensure that everyone feels comfortable.
The designers were very careful to pay close attention to Cape Cod style and details when choosing every aspect of HGTV Dream Home 2015’s front yard. Rather than a paved driveway, a traditional pea-gravel drive adds to the home’s New England style.
