  1. ESTABLISHED

This colorful home is a harmonious blend of interior and exterior spaces. The garden is designed to accommodate large gatherings and provides ample room for outdoor activities. Sinuous lavender-colored walls enclose the upper courtyard and terminate in a bubbling fountain under a small oak. A rustic outdoor kitchen fills one corner, and a large iron fire pit, designed by the owner, sits in the curve of the wall at the other end.

California natives, colorful perennials, grasses and succulents complement the native landscape and coexist with the deer that make daily forages through the yard. A previously existing lawn was retained for play.

Throughout the garden are colorful accents chosen by the owners – kinetic sculptures spin in the wind, a large butterfly chair sits in the lower courtyard surrounded by flowering perennials, and a wall in the dining courtyard is embedded with colorful tile in whimsical shapes.
