The Splash Boxx bio retention planter system is basically a mobile rain garden in a steel container. It adapts the principles of rain garden water filtration to a container that can be used in any location. Rain water runoff from rooftops moves by gravity feed into perforated drain pipes that deposit the water into the garden. This container is deep enough (at least 3 feet of growing depth) to host traditional rain garden plants, including Japanese maple and slough sedges.
The right regional plants shine when combinations feature contrasting leaf textures. These plantings feature yellow twig dogwood shrubs in the center, surrounded by thin-leaved plants, including daylily, variegated sedge and lavender. Blue junipers interject a pretty evergreen hue.
Cozy Country Cottage in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California
This beautiful country cottage has been renovated to include a warm color palette that plays on the warm, California sunshine let in by skylights and expansive multi-pane windows and French doors. The ceilings are high pitched and feature exposed beams, creating the cozy cottage feel in this just over 2000 square foot home.
Glossy black subway tile and a patterned gray tile floor balance out the bold, colorful graffiti design on the breakfast nook dining furniture. In the great room, faux deer heads painted every shade of the rainbow inject a dose of whimsy and surprise.
A large, deep beam runs through the center of the living room, but the crown moldings were designed to match its look and minimize its heavy feel. Moldings are flat, stepped strapwork with a simple geometric base and casings.
Traditional White Sunroom With Vintage Modern Chairs And Upholstered Window Seat
A light-filled sunroom with skylights, this room is the perfect place to enjoy views of the surrounding trees, and is furnished with vintage modern chairs with soft neutral cushions, round coffee table, midcentury modern floor lamp, and built in window seat.
Craftsman-Style Grand Foyer Hall With Stone Columns
This long hallway entrance connects the foyer to the great room. Craftsman-style sconces and drum shade pendant lights guide the way. Stone columns meet wooden ceiling beams down the length of the hall causing the eye to travel with them.
Designers chose to go white with this small bathroom to make up for its tiny size and limited natural light. A period sink and tub added architectural details and penny and subway tiles gave a simple and timeless feel.
