Year In Review—A Look Back At 2022

DESIGNING WORLDWIDE

In 2022 we took on even more clients around the globe—like in Thailand and in new areas of the country like Texas, Florida, and more.

THAILAND

We recently designed a concept for a hotel in Thailand—one of our biggest projects to date.

TEXAS

In 2022, we traveled to Texas for this build and it did not disappoint.

FLORIDA

This project is mid-construction, but it’s going to be absolutely incredible when it’s complete.

 

NEW & EXCITING SPACES

From designing small spaces to sprawling poolside resorts, we got to take on some incredible design challenges for some interesting spaces this year. Here are just some of the projects that stretched our creativity in 2022. 

ROOFTOP RENOVATION

For this rooftop project, we had incredibly limited space, but still managed to include everything you need for a private resort experience.  

LAKESIDE DESIGN

This property has an incredible lake view, but the challenge was figuring out how to create a backyard with all the features our clients wanted—that doesn’t block or detract from the view.

 

EXPLORING STYLES

In 2022, we worked with clients whose design styles couldn’t have been more different. We got to explore sleek, modern, and bold concepts, as well as understated, organic ideas, and everything in between. 

ORGANIC MODERN

We incorporated organic shapes and textured materials into this design to bring this backyard spa to life. 

 

UNDERSTATED MINIMALISM

We let the materials and scale of this space speak for itself and kept our design minimal, but bold in this yard.

 

NEW MATERIALS AND INCREDIBLE FEATURES

This year, we designed some of the biggest and most exciting features we’ve ever worked on before—like a breathtaking glass spa, the biggest pool we’ve ever seen in a backyard, putting greens, A Tulum-inspired backyard resort and more. 

GLASS SPA

This glass spa is one of our favorite features from 2022.

UNIQUE CHAIRS

You’d never guess these pipes are going to be chairs when they’re finished! 

 

PROJECTS WE CAN’T WAIT TO SEE COMPLETED

Sometimes, it’s hard to wait for construction to be complete when we’re really excited about a design and we have so many exterior designs that we cannot wait to see come to life in 2023.  

AIRBNB

This backyard is going to be the ultimate getaway when it’s complete.

PRIVATE RESORT

This backyard resort is going to make weekend relaxing a breeze when construction is done.

AND SOME THAT FINISHED CONSTRUCTION

But, our patience has paid off and we were able to tour so many of our finished yards in 2022.

BACKYARD OASIS

This backyard has it all—and is perfect to spend time in day or night.

 

TEXAS GETAWAY

Now that this backyard is complete, it’s the envy of the neighborhood!

Design Essentials To Bring Your Dream Marrakech-Inspired Yard To Life

Marrakech is brimming with lush colors, intricate architecture, and bustling excitement, so it’s no wonder the city has long been a sought-after travel destination. Often called “the red city,” Marrakech is filled with clay-covered buildings that line the streets and meet at the city’s center— a vibrant marketplace where you can find any number of items from spices and local cuisine to tapestries, textiles, and more.  

The city is nestled in a valley surrounded by a palm grove and the regal High Atlas Mountains, with the desert nearby. It’s a unique intersection of history and natural beauty that designers and travelers alike love. Here’s what your exterior design needs to transport you to your own private Moroccan-inspired resort.  

VIBRANT COLORS

Infuse your space with color everywhere or select some accents to add color to your yard.

INTRICATE TILEWORK

Nothing says ‘Morocco’ quite like an intricate mosaic and patterned tile.

FOUNTAIN FEATURE

We added dimension & depth to the space with multiple levels.Elaborate fountains sit at the center of many Moroccan courtyards. Incorporate one into your space. 

 

ELABORATE ENTRYWAY

Set the tone for your space with an arched, grand entryway.

 

ORNATE SHAPES

Think beyond boxy or geometric and include unexpected shapes, instead. 

 

MIXED MATERIALS

Blend smooth stucco with rustic wood, and shimmering tiles to achieve a charming Marrakech style.

TEXTURES & TEXTILES

Layer tapestries, pillows, poufs and other textured pieces into your space.  

 

 

LANTERN LIGHTING

Hang lanterns around your yard and moody lighting to call to mind Marrakech in your yard. 

 

COURTYARDS

Create the illusion of a courtyard by adding a covered patio to your yard and adding pillars to define your space. 

 

 

LAYERED LOOK

Create depth and layers by adding levels to your space. Think sunken spas and raised patios.

3 Before & After Backyard Transformations That Will Motivate You To Create An At-Home Resort Of Your Own

Whether it’s a rooftop spa, or a sprawling multi-acre space with a massive pool, we’ve crafted our process to make sure our designs maximize the potential of any space, and these are some projects that showcase the power of design and the transformations that are possible. Keep reading to get inspired to build your own at-home resort.  

The Skyline Resort is a modern meets classic design that takes advantage of every bit of space in this backyard. The sprawling design wraps around the house and despite the proximity to neighbors and a busy street below, manages to feel like a private oasis for our clients. 

POOL

This sprawling pool wraps around the side of the space to maximize the yard.

COVERED PATIO

This massive outdoor dining area has it all and is the perfect place for a BBQ.

SPA

The spa is made even cozier thanks to the fire pits on either side of it.

We transformed The Obsidian into the ultimate backyard oasis—complete with a minimal, elegant design that’s multi-dimensional and anything but boring. It brings the ‘wow’ factor to this space and includes everything a backyard needs to be a true escape.  

COVERED PATIO

This cozy covered patio has a massive lounge and fireplace to enjoy during the day or at night.  

LEVELS

We elevated the design by adding layers and levels to the yard.

OUTDOOR SHOWER

We added an outdoor shower with plenty of privacy.

This rooftop with an ocean view might be small, but we managed to pack a ton of incredible features into the space. The customized spa sits as the focal point of the rooftop and is accented by a cozy seating area, colorful lighting and a twinkling light-up tree that adds a little magic element to the space.

FIREPIT

This cozy corner is the perfect place to enjoy a fire.

SPA

For this spa, we inset a custom light that adds interest and takes the design to the next level. 

LIGHTING

In addition to the lighting accents around the yard, we included this twinkling tree that’s part natural part magical.
