The current issue of Domino features some good outdoor inspiration, ideas and sources - especially the home of Carina Schott, which almost has us wishing for a non-city home. This is life in the country with an edge...jump below for a look:

We really love the black stained exterior, bright red doors and the simple signage.

An outdoor playroom features a rolling sandbox.

The delicious looking pool is surrounded by Ipe wood decking.

The owner Carina Schott indoors - even the interior decor is sunny!

We think the black and red color scheme works wonderfully in concert with the green, gorgeous surroundings. It doesn't attempt to blend with the natural beauty, and because it doesn't try to, it makes for a happy aesthetic partnership. These colors would possibly read as "too much" in the city, but with the greenery, they feel sharp and clean.

To see more of the Schott's home, check out the entire slideshow at Domino or pick up the June/July issue.
