As seen on HGTV’s Fixer Upper, this entry courtyard’s modern design was enhanced by painting the brick light gray and the door a contemporary blue-black. Natural wood support beams, no-fuss landscaping and a herringbone-pattern wood walkway complete the look.
A built-in bench takes advantage of a quiet corner in this bricked-in courtyard. A flagstone walkway and carefully planned rock gardens make the most of the native plantings and provide a low-maintenance lawn.
Though the koi pond and reflection area are located at the center of the lowest level of this modern Dallas home, the creative layout of the second level allows natural light in, adding to the serenity and drama of the space.
Metallic accents, glass railings and rock beds greet those who visit this modern home located in the Southern California community of Corona del Mar. Clean lines are found in the hardscape, windows and roofline. Illuminated trees gives the space an elegant feel.
To separate the home's front entrance from the highway, designers built concrete walls to frame a small courtyard, using polygal and steel panels to create a bit of transparency on the side of the carport and as a small accent on the street side. Now, the entry circulation comes parallel to the driveway on the street side with bright red doors which match the front door and visually call visitors and clarify the entry sequence.
Walls of windows surround this outdoor space, too, and so allow the owners to appreciate views of the courtyard from almost every room. With landscape lights right in the water, the pond becomes an especially stunning focal point.
Spacious Atrium Courtyard with Built-In Seating and Fire Pit
Indoor/outdoor living can be enjoyed year round in the coastal community of Corona del Mar, California. This spacious atrium is the perfect gathering place for family and friends. Planters are the backdrop for built-in seating.
The waterfall spills into a fountain on the back wall of the courtyard. Thick teak chairs surround a table made from a gnarled petrified tree stump. The organic shape of the table really softens the sharp lines of the chairs and back wall.
