Wooded views through a wall of windows convinced Jean and John Tegtmeier to buy their Dayton, Ohio, home.

"We wanted to give the room shade," Jean says, "and the project grew from there."

Going her own way

When skeptics ask Joan Datesman why she bought a derelict three-story in downtown Annapolis, Maryland, for her home and office, she volleyed back: "Why not?" That's her attitude toward everything home-related, especially decorating "dos" and "don'ts." (She often prefers the don'ts.) "My style?" she muses. "It's about breaking all the rules."

Bali in the Backyard

A vacation souvenir that is dropped in a drawer and forgotten is hardly good enough for Keith Webb and Jack Hagenaars, whose entire backyard is a travel memento of sorts. From trips to Hawaii, Bali, and Costa Rica, Jack and Keith brought home the inspiration to create an exotic tropical-styled garden. Among the palm trees, bananas, and ornamental grasses is an airy hut that evokes memories of ocean breezes and leisurely afternoons on the beach.

Small Bath Squeeze

Space under the eaves enabled Gary Milici to convert the attic of his 1917 Craftsman-style home into a master suite featuring a roomy shower and a skylight-lit bath(see page 74). He gained space for a deck-mounted whirlpool tub and its mechanicals by tucking the tub into the void between the interior knee wall and the sloping roofline.

Go with the flow

The daunting dimensions of Pam Frost's yard initially confounded even this inveterate plantswoman. The shape-- very skinny and extending almost forever. "Plotting it out on graph paper, I thought it looked impossibly long and narrow," says Pam. "My initial idea of running a broad walkway straight down the center reminded me too much of a bowling alley. So I came up with a more romantic approach. Borders were given a serpentine edge, creating hidden areas and places to explore." The result: a calming beauty with serene ebb and flow.

Clean screens

Kids love dinosaurs, but that doesn't mean every parent would feel comfortable letting their child watch Jurassic Park. The outhouse scene alone-- where the smarmy lawyer is snatched off a toilet seat and eaten by one of the creatures-- is enough to give young children nightmares.

Mix and Match

Linda Cochran's mastery of plant combinations can be distilled down to two landscaping dictums: Focus on foliage, and don't get fussy. "I want the garden to look almost like a painting," she says. "I like to see vistas. You have to be able to distinguish things at a distance. So little combinations that you have to peer down at-- to see the color in the middle of the flower matching this little color over here-- don't do it for me." Use big plants, she says, big leaves, big masses. Be bold.
