Usually, when people decide to reclaim an overgrown and neglected backyard, they hand off the job completely to someone else. Not this family. Carolyn and Hector Llorens and their son, John, each designed major parts of it, involving themselves in every detail. The result is a series of garden rooms that can be fun, relaxing, peaceful, or exhilarating. Each outdoor area links to a room in the house, bringing the outside in.
Trainor planted olive trees in the central courtyard, which features a fireplace wall with stone installed by Rodda’s Hard Rock Masonry. Sessions upholstered the cushions of a sofa and armchairs, by Link Outdoor from De Sousa Hughes, with a Décor de Paris fabric. Pillows covered with a Perennials textile lend a colorful accent.
This neutral garden set is perfect for small gardens. You can still enjoy a casual breakfast outside, or as the evenings get warmer a glass of something fruity at dusk. Fold away table and chairs means you can easily clear them away when you need the space for a larger party. Cheers!
