Newport Beach – Traditional townhouse
This backyard was a complete redo with the exception of the shade structure. A mix of colored concrete and natural flagstone define use spaces. A comfy seating nook ,with over sized club chairs and ottomans, is perfect for morning coffee or a glass of wine. A generous built in barbecue with a concrete counter top and natural stone veneer make outdoor cooking a cinch day to day and for dinner parties. Bar stools and a dining table big enough for eight provide more than enough space for entertaining.
A water wise plant palette in various shades of green and grey with burgundy and chartreuse flower and foliage accents provides year round interest in the garden. A traditional fountain, surrounded by a flagstone path, creates a vista and provides soothing water noise throughout the garden and inside the home. Furniture specifically selected for the new outdoor spaces along with custom cushions, pillows, lighting accents and accessories provide the finishing touches.
