Tormented Aksakova Outdoor, November 25th , 2017. There is something so familiar about a white picket fence that it immediately draws us in. It is compelling to look at, urging us to get closer to it and the breathtaking garden that’s lying behind it. We can stare at the fence in fascination, wondering if the interior of the house does the marvelous exterior justice. A home with a conservative style and patriotic appeal is ideal for a white picket fence! It’s the classic model for an American dream – a simple suburban family lifestyle. Red brick houses are so captivating! They have a raw look that radiates a strong character which makes them very noticeable. Soften their look with a charming white picket fence.
Stella Blinova Outdoor, November 26th , 2017. Even when you group “like” plants, sometimes less is more. The neatly spaced succulents below are striking in their form, and the fact that they are separated by a blanket of basalt gravel makes them all the more prominent: Just as many modern landscaping techniques involve using gravel as a base, the use of greenery as a base can add interest and a sense of abundance. For example, planting rosemary around the base of a tree creates a green “stage” and makes the tree’s setting all the more special. Above and below, we see rosemary at the base of a crape myrtle tree. The tree’s pink blossoms are extra vibrant against the greenery that surrounds them. You can take this same concept and apply it to smaller additions around your yard, such as greenery in planters. For example, moss beautifully offsets the green succulent in the next featured planter.

Mironova Artyomova Outdoor, November 26th , 2017. With summer firmly here, life outside seems more enticing than spending time indoors. And it is the backyard, patio, or the poolside deck that takes up most of our time each evening, as we bask in the warmth of dusk. It helps to have a luxurious array of outdoor décor that serves you well in the months to come, as you plan for fall parties and even early winter celebrations in the yard. Few offer a better range of luxurious and enduring outdoor décor like Tribu and today we shed a light on their gorgeous Mood Collection designed by Studio Segers. An ultra-luxurious, resilient and all-weather collection of outdoor décor, we first stumbled upon Mood as we took a look at the exquisite Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza. The striking collection in wood comes with a handwoven Tricord body that is water-resistant. Each of the lounge chairs, daybeds and club chairs comes in either stonegrey or earthbrown, ensuring that your outdoor décor has a natural vibe and blend into the earthen landscape.

A great way to enjoy the sights and sounds around you as you bask in warm summer glow; even while being draped in luxury.
Tormented Aksakova Outdoor, November 26th , 2017. Planters can help you fill in gaps as you put the finishing touches on your modern landscaping. Need to add height to a section of your yard? Try a tall planter. Looking to create some privacy in a seating area? Create a screen with a row of planters filled with abundant greenery. The possibilities are endless. While summer isn’t always the best time to put new plants in the ground, it’s a great time to gather inspiration for your modern landscape. Have fun observing, making big changes if you can, or adding little clusters of greenery by incorporating planters. Happy gardening.
Emilia Vorobyova Outdoor, November 25th , 2017. 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).
Mironova Artyomova Outdoor, November 25th , 2017. Sitting next to an infinity edge pool, the spacious pool house contains an informal dining space along with a full-fledged kitchen and other private spaces. The dining area flows into the terraced garden and pool deck outside thanks the use of large, sliding glass doors that seamlessly connect the interior with the outdoors. As far as the green roof itself, architects had to request the city for special permissions as existing construction and water drainage norms simply did not permit for the lovely addition. A curved wooden roof also plays into the overall schematic and cleverly hides the project’s equipment and additional support even as it allows natural light to flood indoors. Additional rainwater simply drains away from the green roof and flows to a natural creek nearby while a large fireplace provides a warm and striking focal point as the sun sets and dark Texas nights take over.

Rose Denisova Outdoor, November 26th , 2017. Succulents are an ever-popular planter choice, and many modern design lovers create succulent gardens and plantscapes that feature a range of plants in different colors and forms.
