An outdoor retreat for a residence in Colorado was inspired by its sweeping views of the Roaring Fork Valley and Elk Mountain Range. The outside haven, which has come to be known as Woody Creek Garden, is an interpretation of an alpine rooftop terrace with an extensive palette of stone and natural elements such as native plants and water. Colorado Buff sandstone was heavily incorporated into the design &emdash; anchoring it to the land and complementing the surrounding mountainscape. Story begins on page 10.

Carpet construction and patterns may be getting more sophisticated
but when it comes to this year's color trends, manufacturers say neutral tones, especially grays, will continue to rule the day.
