Crouching Tiger, Hidden Oasis
September 4, 2012 § 4 Comments
Sometimes a fence can bring you so much more than just a little privacy. In this case, it contains a zen oasis, inside and out.
I love the idea of having a large koi pond complete with floating lilly pads and a chiselled stone walkway… how very ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon’!
And then there’s the zen sand garden… life-sized!
But I’m really loving the charred cedar planks in the fence and the ipé wood in the deck, floors and ceilings… beautiful continuity.
And finally… that bathroom! Unlike any spa environment I’ve ever seen… perfection in limestone walls and a deep stone tub, ipé walkways lined with basalt river rocks and an intriguing placement of windows, connecting the outdoors, in.
Sigh… Zen at it’s best! For more on this beautiful home, click here.
