This was a model home we dressed up for a real estate company/builder we worked for. They were looking for some special pizazz with a laundry list: waterfall and small pond, a bridge over from cement, stamped concrete finish in an appropriate color, but “different”. It was a pretty cool gig, actually, with lots of license to do our own thing. You can make out the little falls there at the right, nothing spectacular but running, providing motion and some not-too-overwhelming sounds for the home shoppers walking in. It was a fabulous success and won a couple of awards.
I have come to using Atlantic Cedar a lot around my water features, in particular the weeping variety. It’s hard to make them out, I guess, in these pictures, yet they expand nicely and are just a natural color, in my opinion, near water. The use of pastels in the fundamental elements here called for the color as well.
