Morera Residence – Del Mar, CA
Red sugar cane, kangaroo paws, reeds and a Caribbean Copper tree stand out against the corrugated galvanized metal fence and deep umber stucco. Off the dining room, an outdoor courtyard contains an in ground spa and curved granite water wall, comfortable teak loungers and a raised charcoal concrete and Ipe fire element to take off the chill. A beautifully crafted pebble and slate mosaic in the entry extends out from the front door to become an exposed aggregate and slate entry path. Dracaenas, yuccas and aloes add an architectural element to the front garden with its rusted metal sculpture and bench.
