Egress in basement, water mitigation?
When the outdoor space is at ground level, and the architectural design doesn't allow for a full-length overhang, a narrow transition strip between inside and out will likely do the trick. A gravel bed with a drainage channel below can be an effective way to keep water from building up and running into the house.

Windows and Chaise

Just as the all-white interior of an art gallery doesn’t get in the way of the art on display, this all-white bedroom allows the artwork that is the landscape beyond to take center stage. With distinctly horizontal proportions, the window affords a panoramic view of the hills and sky beyond, while the bookshelves, curtains and rod all frame the art that nature provides.
