This was the view that greeted me each morning on a recent trip to southern California. The grass, flowers, warmth and sunshine were a welcome escape from winter.
This area is known for its spanish style architecture evidenced by the terra cotta tile patio. But I loved how often the tile motif was repeated around the resort.
Rooms were identified by lettered and numbered tiles.
The stairs leading to an elevated patio area boasted of a different tile pattern on each step. The effect was alluring.
Even the stairways in less prominent areas adhered to the multi-patterned design. The attention to detail was remarkable.
A secluded fountain is a charming continuation of the tile motif.
This type of decorative repetition is what creates a cohesive look — whether in a California resort or in a Wisconsin home. At Premiere Home Stagers our clients often call us to help their home look “pulled together.” We suggest colors, furnishings and accessories that accomplish this goal.
I enjoyed spending time in a place where someone else sought to accomplish the same thing.
