Tiles - Beautiful courtyard! Are these limestone pavers? Size and color?
   Comment   July 3, 2013

What Houzz contributors are saying:

In this Arizona house, a reflecting pool in the courtyard and a strong axis through the living space sets up a formal symmetry. Vertical plantings, columns, and exposed rafter tails beneath the roof create rhythm and add human scale to the space. In a desert climate, the use of a reflecting pool in the courtyard has an evaporative cooling effect on the microclimate of a home. The solid mass of stucco masonry walls provides thermal storage for heat during the day and releases it back into the atmosphere at night.
Debra Prinzing added this to Reflecting Pools as Liquid Assets
This courtyard is quite beautiful, but it could look stark if furnished only by stone pavers and sleek cactus-filled containers. The rectangular bubbling pool acts like a liquid carpet, drawing the eye — and anyone arriving here — to the front doorway. Nearly all the senses are pleased in this scene.
