Eclectic Residence Offers Unrivaled View and Seclusion
Nestled in the hills of northern California, this eclectic and truly iconic home boasts a stunning view of the Crystal Springs Reservoir. Although the home's vibrant orange and purple exterior easily stands out from the hillside, the surrounding trees still provide a degree of seclusion and privacy.
Coastal Home Exterior With Horizontal Porch Design
The craftsman facade of the HGTV Dream Home 2013 shows an elevated front porch with support piers and exposed steel hurricane strapping to prevent storm damage. A horizontal mahogany porch railing stands out against the sage exterior and Southern yellow pine timber beams.
All-weather umbrellas and soft cushions offer a chance to lounge in the shade or bask in the sun. And the portable speaker dock keeps the tunes going. You can even let guests attach their own MP3 player or smartphone for a chance to DJ.
Rich blue and coral hues enliven this rooftop lounge, making the space feel warm and inviting for guests. A modern fire pit keeps the spot cozy at night and complements the chic, contemporary furnishings.
Eclectic Residence Coincides With California Hillside
With an eye toward the surrounding hills of northern California, this truly iconic residence uses a unique series of domes to mimic the natural landscape. Descending stone steps lead guests to the front entrance, while the bright orange and purple exterior serves as a testament to the home's bold eclectic style.
Mediterranean Terrace With Wood Roof, Built-In Seating
A wing of this Mediterranean terrace juts out into the lush Sardinian landscape to offer sweeping views of the crisp blue sea. The terra cotta color of the tile extends onto the cushions of a built-in bench, as well as the warm wood roof of the covered veranda. This three-building villa rests at the heart of the village of Porto Rafael, just steps from the picturesque Piazzetta.
Enter into this gorgeous courtyard and be greeted by beautiful gardens on either side. The large Mediterranean style wall creates privacy while a white pergola can be used as a base for climbing plants.
This spacious backyard deck features vibrant orange-red furniture, including two armchairs with matching ottomans. A brown wood coffee table sits in the center, while large stones and lush green plants line the deck, providing a natural landscape.
No need to use a fabric rug in this outdoor space, given the orange and white-bordered rug painted on the wood deck. The cheery bright color scheme continues with the outdoor dining table and orange and white stools.
Create a designated spot outside for kids by turning dead space corners into low-slung activity spots. Keep things versatile with maintenance-free stackable play tables and indoor-outdoor cushions for comfy seating on the ground.
