Sedona Tranquility

Nancie Plum and Eric Shrode's home outside Sedona, Ariz., has fabulous mountain views, but they can't see them past their overgrown foliage. Their design challenge: Create an outdoor living space that makes Mother Nature the star.

  • Before: The entryway is nearly invisible on the porch.
  • After: Comfortable, inviting furniture and a walkway transformed this space into a destination.
  • The Plan: Jim Law uses the natural scenery to accent his design for the home.
  • Before: The couple want to transform this carport into a relaxing space.
  • After: The former carport now has room for entertaining.
  • Before: This couple wanted a parking area here.
  • After: The stained concrete matches the rest of the home's outdoor spaces.
  • Before: Overgrown greenery hides views.
  • After: Clearing the landscape exposes beautiful views.
