One sign of a successful home design is not necessarily how beautiful the structure itself is, but how well it complements the surrounding landscape. We had the pleasure of working on a home that perfect accentuates its outdoor space, and incorporates the sunny backdrop of Gulfport, Mississippi into the living space.
When viewed from the front, it would be hard to believe that more than half of this home’s total volume is an outdoor space. Even within the indoor rooms and atriums, rustic Cleopatra stone flooring and big, open windows blend the surrounding landscape into the home.
When the sun is shining, the sliding wooden door on the far wall of the foyer open up to expose the home's gorgeous pool. The pool area is one of the most impressive uses of outdoor space we've seen, in terms of both its structure and the variety of stone applications. The surrounding patio includes multiple sitting areas, a grill, bar, and a cozy fireplace, making this space more than just a pool, but an extension of the living space. The stone floor tiles transition seamlessly from the indoor space to the patio, making the space feel cohesive with the rest of the home. Colonial Gold granite makes for a durable grill workspace and bar. But as beautiful as the design is, it's hard not to look up. A ceiling of windows allows for a panoramic vista of the skies and back bays of Gulfport, Mississippi.
In the master bathroom, Calacatta Gold extends the natural glow provided by the large windows adjacent to the tub. The granite is tinted very slightly with a creamy gold, as the name suggests.
The kitchen countertops are Colonial Gold, finished with a teak wood eating bar that adds warmth and texture to the contrast the industrial-style kitchen.
Thanks to its structure and design, this breathtaking home invites the blissful Southern landscape right into the living space. The materials used highlight the warmth and natural light typical of the Southeast, and make for a home that simply would not be the same anywhere else.
