Modern Home Receives Colorful, Boho Makeover

With the help of landscape designer Elizabeth Przygoda-Montgomery, this home in Tuscon, Ariz., received a colorful makeover. The entryway, which once featured only concrete and gravel, was walled off to create a courtyard with a cool nest chair for reading, while the backyard was revamped to include porch swings, a dining area and a fire pit. Throw pillows and patterned rugs bring on the boho vibes.

Interior Sight Lines Create Seamless Indoor-Outdoor Living

Desert Color Palette in Modern Backyard Design

The homeowners wanted a backyard design that would blend into the desert surroundings rather than compete with it, so designers chose native plants like gray-green cacti and natural colored hardscape such as warm, caramel stones and pale, sun-bleached wood that would reflect the warm, desert tones to create the look.
