Slate Dream

Designer: Erin Kidd


In this natural setting, this spa was designed to pull out the elements of a similar design concept the client absolutely adored from a recent trip to Costa Rica. The designer was inspired and chose to propose 360 degrees of Battered Slate to create this exquisite and mysterious look. Bearing in mind the elevation challenges of the yard, the designer worked closely with the landscaper to pull together a complete backyard plan that incorporated this spa as a focal point from the master bedroom and also dropped it farther down into the yard to achieve privacy along with an aesthetically pleasing view from all angles of the home. Combining the flagstone steps and enlarged decking area increased the clients entertaining space with adding character in the materials which heightens the look and feel of the beautiful trickling sound of the water feature.
