Neighborly Front Patio

A walkway in the front entry of this Tucson, Arizona home snakes from the curb to three curved, freestanding walls that enclose a patio. The planting areas inside all have serpentine contours as well, echoing the shape of the walls.

The main hues on the walls are shades of purple — Valhalla and Venice Lavender by Frazee Paint — chosen because they reflect the tones of the surrounding mountains at dusk. Casino Green and Red Alert provide accents.
