Historic Tropical tropical pool

Historic Tropical

Transforming this charming example of a 1926 Palm Beach house by architect Gustav Maas was a study in restraint and embellishment. We traversed the process of having the house land marked and won the 2008 Polly Earl Preservation Award for our efforts. While maintaining the historic exterior, we played with the interior layout. We embellished the gracious entry and opened up what was once a series of formal rooms. The new plan helped set the tone for a more relaxed and casual lifestyle. The interiors are filled with vibrant tropical hues and clean modern furniture forms. Each room flows seamlessly into the next and gives the overall feeling of a playful and joyous place to retire and escape.

I LOVE THIS! It's intimate without being too close. I just can't tell if this is a 4 ft or 6 ft pool. Also, I've discovered "Screen Paint" for watching movies on walls. Is that what you did? You're really talented!

I would love a set up out back by my pool I've recently have been checking them out. Living in Florida I would use it year round. I would also love one in the kitchen I love to cook and really could use it. Bathroom would be perfect for the times I soak in the tub!! Awesome!!! Love them all!

Movie Screen & projector - I love the whole design. Can you tell me where to purchase this set up (screen & projector/equipment). I am remodeling my back yard and want to do this exact thing. Thank you

Where do you place the projector? - Front or rear placement?

screen - Is a movie projected onto a screen or just the wall itself? If it is just the wall, is a special paint applied to achieve such a clear picture? Thanks.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Laura Gaskill added this to Make a Memorable Backyard Movie Night
Assess your yard. The first step is to take a look around the exterior of your home. Do you have a blank wall available? That could be the perfect spot for the silver screen (or a white sheet). You will also need a small table or a stool to position the projector and a seating area — though a patch of lawn works just as well as a full outdoor living room.
