The designers and creative professionals of Ryan Hughes Design Build have crafted a sun-filled version of a private, yet welcoming, Secret Garden in one Tampa family's backyard. Surrounded by verdant foliage and elegant stone wall elements, this fresh and functional outdoor space delivers enjoyment and experiences through relaxing vistas and spilling water features, sun shelfs and conversation-creating enclaves. The expanse of this hidden gem is coordinated in a neutral color palette that encourages relaxation and reflection while encircled by greenery and cooling waters. Designed by founder and creative director, Ryan Hughes, this Belleair project includes an ornately appointed swimming pool with a crowning raised spa with decorative waterfall feature. A lounge adorned sun self within the pool creates the perfect vantage point for taking in the sun or all that surrounds. A custom-built pergola and a raised lounge patio offer seating for family and friends including lounge chairs by Castelle or deep seating by Patio Renaissance. Neutral travertine tile and touches of multi-tone wall tiles pulls the design together perfectly coordinating with all the textiles used in the garden furnishings. Just as in the children's book of the garden that was once drab, when cared for and infused with the expertise and talents of the Hughes team this back yard space magically becomes a welcome retreat. When the sun goes down, this magic also is on display when the Tampa backyard literally sparkles and sines providing an enticing venue for entertainment and family gatherings.
