The house's main level centers around an open air living and dining room that seamlessly joins with patios and the gorgeous infinity pool. On either side of this space is a bedroom; the master suite perches on the floor above.
While quilts and blankets are best kept indoors most of the time, bring them out on breezy days or brisk evenings. They definitely inject farmhouse style to a porch, and they are an easy accessory to transport in and out of the house.
As summer is winding down and garden pots are vacated, stack them up and use them as sculptural accessories. They can be strikingly beautiful, even empty. You could tuck a pinecone, mini pumpkin or gourd inside as well.
Purple coneflower, daisies, foxglove, black-eyed Susans, astilbe and hollyhocks fill this garden. "More than half the plants were split from perennials in other areas of my garden," says the homeowner, "and this turned out to be my favorite bed."
Planters of varying heights and shapes are filled with structured cycads and vibrant succulents, bringing life to this outdoor lounge. Woven chairs with modern lines combine with a sleek, contemporary table to create a conversation area that takes advantage of its panoramic setting.
Everything about this gorgeous backyard, patio and pool was designed to evoke the East Coast's Hamptons. Pergolas provide poolside shade, while cozy furnishings and blue accents infuse the outdoors with a style all their own.
