The new courtyard is now the perfect space for outdoor dining and entertaining with its surrounding ambience of colorful potted plants, a visually intriguing stone wall (now covered in fig vines) and an unique water feature in the planter under the open arch.
Small touches in this room give it a global feel as well as a touch of whimsy. Small planters are suspended over the tub for a pop of life and greenery. Also above the tub is a colorful piece of art found in a market in Mexico City, depicting a scene from the Day of the Dead.
The cool, contemporary features of this garden are complemented by adding textures and color with other contrasting materials. Native plants in the background soften the concrete planters, and the comfortable wood outdoor couch is made even more inviting with the addition of colorful, overstuffed pillows and a cozy throw blanket. Who wouldn't want to curl up next to that fire pit on a crisp California evening?
