this pond was created by damming an existing creek. A landscape architect or designer could help you with creating a pond from scratch.

esplanade
Hi _ I have similar windows & need a window treatment that doesnt look like I've just pulled down a projector screen! Curtains impede the view during the day but look look lovely at night. I see they have simple rollers. My bank of windows is 16m long and 3m high. Any insights?

Hi there. I also have several of these Eames chairs available — they are vintage. until the 1980s, these chairs were made with brazilian rosewood, which is no longer available due to environmental reasons. If you want a real design classic, you should get this chair with brazilian rosewood, as it was intended. krrb.com/joshlamiel

The windows are a typical storefront system, where we have hidden the aluminum extrusions.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kit Pollard added this to Rooms for Every Age
40s - Also, by the time your 40's roll around, you're likely to have a little more disposable income than when you were in your 20's, which means that expensive pieces (like an Eames lounge chair) are finally within reach.
Kit Pollard added this to Your Moment of Zen: Spaces that Calm
This room is my visual definition of "calm." I love everything about it, from the iconic form-meets-function armchair to the walls lined with books, the intense view of the wooded yard and the warmth of the fireplace. Even five minutes in this space would lower my blood pressure.
Kit Pollard added this to Check Out That View
The contrast here is great. The fireplace, Eames chair and bookshelves all scream "winter library", but the window's view out to a green yard is all bright summer.
In some cases, less really is more. Here is an example of how the fireplace serves as a true centerpiece for the room. With very little furniture and just a room filled with books and flames, you can really just let yourself escape into your own imagination. It's rare to see a fireplace against a glass wall like this but it's a neat design format that should be considered if it's possible. Just picture reading a book by this fire while snow falls outside and you can see how romantic and cozy you'll feel with a design like this one.
Becky Harris added this to How to Stage Shelves
OK, this room just rules. The lines of the shelves emphasize the perspective.
Kit Pollard added this to Really Big Windows
This is one of my very favorite Houzz photos - I love the combination of books, fire, and the outdoors.
So many of you saved this photo in your ideabooks. slgvam has recently commented about this photo saying that it's "everything that makes life worth living"... We couldn't say it better!
With built-ins, a fireplace, a floor to ceiling view, and an iconic lounge chair, what's not to like? What living room caught YOUR eye this year?
Jonathan Baker added this to Design for Guys: 8 Great Accent Chairs
Now this, men, is a proper recliner and ottoman. One of the most prominent designs of the 20th century, the Eames lounge chair was developed to be a comfortable but handsome addition to a living set. Charles Eames said his goal for the chair was the “warm, receptive look of a well-used first baseman’s mitt.” ‘Nuff said.
Margaret Everton added this to How To Make Your Modern Style Timeless
Go with modern furniture that has already withstood the test of time. Who can ever see this Eames chair and ottoman becoming passé? Often one focal piece is all it takes to make a room.
Lily Gahagan added this to 7 Stately Study Essentials
...For example, an Eames lounge and ottoman work to create a more modern study space, and provide a good spot to kick back with an engrossing tome. Which brings us to: 2. Lots and lots of books. Old ones, new ones, a mix — it all works. Sprinkle in a few reference books. (Yes, those still exist post-Internet.) And if you haven't read all of them, we won't tell.
John Hill added this to 24 Amazing Walls of Books
Why one wall of books when you can have two? If this room only had one wall covered with books it would want another, given the strong symmetry of the space with its central fireplace. One thing our wall of books shares with this one is the change in spacing from large on the bottom to small on the top, so bigger books are closer to the floor and therefore easier to handle.
1. Is it important to you? Rethink your rooms and belongings based on how you really live, and you will find your dollar stretching further and your home becoming more aligned with your lifestyle. For instance, there is no need to invest in a formal dining room and all it entails — chandelier, oversize table, fancy chairs, sideboard and so on — if you never throw dinner parties and your family always prefers to eat in the kitchen. A cushy library with just one perfect chair, a fireplace and all of your most cherished books at your fingertips may be much more suited to your life.
A well-tempered, uncluttered interior space creates a stage for thought and imagination. Here books are the wall art, as is the large window overlooking a wonderful old tree. A minimalist fireplace relaxes the space. One could almost overlook the beautiful wood floor.All of these separate elements are woven into a successful and simple composition made for contemplation.
Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC. added this to Spare Room? Lucky You. Here are 12 Fresh Ways to Use It
Contemplation room. This is a private place for clearing your head or thinking things through. It’s best to keep it free of clutter and technology. I suggest comfortable seating that takes advantage of any available view.
