Rustic Outdoor Space with Stone Walkway through Native Plants, Perennials and Annuals
A stone walkway leads to the pool and hot tub, pool house, outdoor kitchen and dining areas. The landscape designer created an abundance of planting beds and used mostly native plants and some specialty perennials and annuals.
This Cape Cod cottage was designed to capture the authentic rustic nature of the area around it, while respecting the long-standing history. It is a place to spend long summer days swimming, golfing and boating with friends and family.
Large boulder outcroppings define the living space and anchor the edges of the random Fon du Lac slab and moss patio. A custom pergola frames views of Deer Lake beyond while creating an inviting space to relax and gather with friends or family.
Rustic Mountain Retreat with Stone Exterior and Grand Entryway
A new entry for this renovated 12,000-square foot main house showcases the home's rustic appeal and welcomes visitors into a retreat unlike any other. The stone exterior and steps beautifully accent the grand wooden post and beam entrance.
For homeowners who love to host family and friends, an outdoor entertaining space is a must. On this porch dining area, a handmade table, benches and chairs give ample seating. Muted black pendants provide handsome lighting overhead.
Set in Big Sky, Mont., this home is specifically designed to withstand both extremes of the temperature spectrum. Additionally, the house is separated into the main living area and the guest wing. The guest area is designed so that it can be shut off from the rest of the house when unoccupied and set back to a lower temperature when not in use. The two wings of the house bend in order to capture the best views of the river and create a protected entry courtyard.
This updated farmhouse sits on the shores of Lake Geneva and is inspired by Wisconsin's agricultural heritage. Guests are welcomed through subtle landscaping into the sun-drenched entry filled with windows.
This home incorporates many unique design elements, but perhaps the aspect that captures the most attention is the expansive garage that spans the entire ground floor. Extensive landscaping was employed to complete the project, including solid rock retaining walls, iron fences and fountains throughout the property.
