If you’ve had the chance to visit the lovely Gardenia, you will agree that it is truly an ode to art. While this Larry Warren, Messel-inspired home boasts signature coral stone pillars, winding staircase and mesmerizing views of the ocean, its décor is also quite mention-worthy.

The essence of Ian Morrison’s Greensleeves is simply Asia on the beach.

But, the most notable of its statement pieces is its Japanese water garden, complete with a thriving koi pond that meanders throughout the home.
