Pool-side paradise- When we think of luxury we often think of a space that allows us to enjoy meals and conversation with friends. We also think of the features that will allow us to connect to the natural elements, stimulate our senses, and help us restores our body and soul.

Your space can be a paradise! This pool was updated in a residential home project. Today this home's backyard space is a space where residents can play, communicate with loved ones, and relax. This pool has space to sit near a warm fireplace, enjoy a warm soak in the spa, or even take a cool swim.

Emerald Terrace is one of our projects that we haven't showed off very much. The unique tile work in this pool deck adds a fun element to a contemporary space. Emerald Terrance gets it's name from lush greenery that surrounds the space. What do you think?

DESIGN INSPO-There is so much knowledge in the natural world. Whether that be in natural systems or organisms, as designers, we are fascinated with all of it! This is the Glasswing Butterfly, it looks like something out of a sci-fi novel but it is real and very abundant in Central American countries.

Another angle of the Milano Apartments. This is a shot of the fountain in the courtyard. This fountain was custom build for this space. The concept is sculptural and suppose to capture the feeling of a waterfall in the lush mountains. What do you think of this design?! Let us know in the comments 😊 🌿 💚

A stunning mini film of the Sunset Vine Project that we love so much. The Sunset Vine Tower is a landmark tower in Los Angeles that was at one time the tallest building in the city. It also starred in the 1974 movie Earthquake! The Sunset Vine Tower certainly looks good for it's age right!? What do you think? Could you lounge here now?😄 Design feedback is always welcome!

Today we are highlighting the stream orchid CA native. This flower is so beautiful and a wonderful addition to a well irrigated area in your garden. As the name suggests, the stream orchid needs to be near water in order to flourish. For those with pond or fountains, this flower can be a great compliment that will look great near any body of water. These flowers will bloom in the spring or summer and reach a dormant phase in the late summer. If you building paradise, make sure to include the stream Orchid in your planting plan.
