This raised deck off of a bedroom at this Los Angeles, CA home creates a perch for an oversize lounge chair, whose cushion echoes the bronzy brown foliage of a spiky-leafed phormium near the deck’s front edge. Bronze plants repeat near each garden room, reinforcing the brown-red theme. (Photo: Coral Von Zumwalt)
