outdoor living

Outdoor living is a temporary series on the blog that contains stylish outdoor living areas and sometimes al fresco table settings. It's about celebrating the season of summer!
This week's outdoor living area belongs to a California home, a 1960s ranch owned by Monica Bhargava, the Executive Vice President of Pottery Barn and Williams-Sonoma brands, and her family. What I like about their outdoor dining area is the mix of styles, a rustic farmhouse table with industrial chairs, surrounded by lemon trees in terracotta pots that create a beautiful setting. In an interview with House Beautiful, Bhargava was asked what she missed most about her house when she was away travelling for work and besides her family her answer was: "Well, I miss hanging out in the backyard with a glass of wine. California has such a great indoor/outdoor vibe." Even though I have never been in California I totally get her answer just by looking at that image. By the way, I have given you a peek into her living room; it's the second image in my post about the Hermès blankets.

  1. How beautiful! A gorgeous setting. I want to sit at that table right now, have a glass of wine and eat walnuts.
