Curved stone walkways meanders through the gorgeous gardens that make up this property's exquisite grounds. A vast array of foliage, trees, and flowers along with the narrow walkway create a tranquil and intimate space.
Although there is much to see and experience at the back of this home, nothing is more inviting than the simple lines of the swimming pool that awaits a willing participant. From the pool, one can view the beautiful covered patio and rustic pergola that sit side by side as interesting contrasts. The simple lines and textures of this outside scene, as designed by Mark Scott and Associates, are a amalgamation of French Provence design.
French-Inspired Patio With Wicker Chair and Flowering Plants
Flowering plants peeking out of a basket is an easy addition to make to any outdoor space. Purchase a number of plants and group them together inside a basket, and use them in several spots around your deck. A simple small chair is an easy addition to any of your existing furniture.
A covered loggia connects the garage to the main house, as well as teases a view of the rear garden. Blue pottery decorates the breezeway and speaks to the same cobalt-colored tile that lines the pool and fountain.
The Old World-inspired exterior of this Bel Air guest home is pleasantly hidden beneath lots of lush greenery, making this space feel private and intimate. A clock on the stone wall gives it that French country feel.

French-Inspired Patio With Floral Pillows and Whitewashed Terra-Cotta Pots
Whitewashed terra-cotta pots and ceramic pitchers work together to set the scene. Start out with a few creamy pillows and add to your collection over time. Yellow and blue is a classic color scheme that also feels very French.
Stone archways frame views of the pool and cabana beyond, as well as invite cool breezes to filter inside this loggia. Meanwhile, a white table and chairs both visually lighten the room and allow for entertaining guests.
