One architectural feature that we believe should definitely catch on quickly with homeowners across the globe is the gorgeous green roof! Living roofs might not be practical in every region of the globe, but wherever possible and whenever used, they make a big difference to the structure that they adorn. And we are not talking about ecological impact alone; green roofs also add to the aesthetics of a structure and this dashing modern pool house in Westlake Hills, Texas is another perfect case in the point. Designed by Murray Legge Architecture, this lovely pool house sits next to an expansive outdoor hangout, swimming pool, spa and green landscape.
The Regista Series of Armchairs and Easy Chairs designed by Monica Armani feel refined, contemporary and yet unassumingly classy. They fit in with a wide range of outdoor spaces with varied styles ranging from minimal and modern to coastal and shabby chic. Coming in a variety of neutral hues, it is the distinctive, handwoven weather-resistant fiber body of these Tribu chairs that gives the collection its unique identity. Add to this the allure of powercoated aluminum legs and you have a winning combination that stands the test of time. Looking for a bit more color and charisma? Then the Hamptons Graphics outdoor furniture collection is the one for you! Blending a seemingly simple outline with pops of bold color and fun compositions, this innovative new series from Roberti leaves you captivated. From armchairs and sofas to relaxing easy chairs and outdoor loungers, you will find everything you need here in two different hues – white and coffee. Of course, it is the bright cushions that add another layer of eye-catching glam.
If you live in an area where it’s not practical to cultivate a lush, green lawn, you may be interested in creating a more drought-tolerant landscape by using native plants that don’t require much water. Xeriscaping is becoming increasingly popular, and even if you’re not looking to add large amounts of gravel to your yard, you can create an abundant look by grouping plants into clusters. After all, there’s power in numbers. Whether you saturate an area with a large number of the same plant or you introduce some variety by incorporating a couple of different types of native plants, you can get a modern look by planting greenery in rows or tidy groups. When “like” plants are placed together and more than one selection is involved, you can achieve eye-catching contrast. Or you can make a statement by including one different plant that stands out in the pack (scroll to the top of the post to see a lone blue agave plant take center stage in a sea of Mexican feather grass).
