CB September 2004


Relaxing after a hard day is easier than ever thanks to new luxuries in the bath and shower.

The right shutters can add a look of luxury to any house.

In the past, stone has been the material of choice when it comes to building large, luxurious buildings, such as castles and cathedrals. Why should current luxury homes be any different?

The abundance of glass incorporated into the magnificent master suite in this $6.6 million spec-built luxury residence in Naples, Fla., reveals lush gardens and water features.

A compact design does not diminish the drama or the functionality of the entry foyer in this upscale, shingle-style vacation cottage on South Carolina's Hilton Head Island.

The FreshAir Fireplace from Hearth & Home Technologies brings fresh air into the home while reducing moisture and the chance of mold and mildew.

Entertaining outdoors is a popular way to spend time with family and friends. New products cater to this trend toward outdoor living and entertaining.

Inspired by the charming details of the historic villas of Tuscany, architect Matin Taraz developed this magnificent 22,000-square-foot estate home in Rancho Santa Fe, Calif.

Creating a small but efficient work triangle within a much larger space was the primary design goal of the one-of-a-kind kitchen in this custom residence.

Lined up on an axis with the open-air foyer, the courtyard pool serves as a striking focal point for all the living spaces, including the entry.
