We all may not live in paradise, but there’s certainly no harm in taking a peek into how the other half live from time to time. There’s something therapeutic about taking a look at the homes of the rich and famous, to inspire our dreams and wish lists if money were no object for us.

We’re going to look at some of the most beautiful homes and gardens, out of curiosity but also for inspiration. What elements of these homes can you recreate in your own beautiful, although more modest, family home?

To create an outdoor swimming area that’s perfect for both entertainment and relaxation, it can’t be complete without a shaded poolside area, which gives a space for you or your guests to escape the sun. Even without the pool, a shaded patio can add an entirely new dimension to your garden.

The common theme with all of these luxury paradise homes is their relaxing and calming atmosphere. You might not have the resource to create the same level of luxury, but you can recreate the feeling of escapism and relaxation by dedicating one space in your garden to sleeping, reading, and relaxing alone.
