Steal This Look: A Mod LA Patio with Twinkly String Lights


Steal This Look: A Mod LA Patio with Twinkly String Lights

June 3, 2014

We’ve been admiring actress Jennifer Carpenter’s Laurel Canyon patio for a while now, from the strand lighting casually laced through the overhanging trees to the eclectic mix of classic outdoor furnishings.

Carpenter collaborated with Ashe + Leandro to transform a 1930s LA hunting lodge into a color-splashed bohemian abode. The garden patio features bright citrus colors, a vintage glider, and shade-loving house plants; a winning combination. Recreate the SoCal vibe with the following elements:

Above: In LA, you have the advantage of abundant foliage, which creates an automatic screen. Throw mod furniture and bright accents into the mix and you’re done.

Above: The white Acapulco Chair is woven of flexible vinyl cord with a black wire frame; $435 from Innit Designs.

Above: Designed by Denmark-based company Hay, the Hee Lounge Chair is available in six different colors, including yellow (shown here) for $660 from A + R Store.

Above: The Table in a Bag Outdoor Commercial 15-Light String Light Set Up is $67.60 for the 48-foot-long strand from Amazon.

Above: Crate & Barrel’s Sunbrella Outdoor Pillow has an acrylic cover that’s designed to resist mold, mildew, and fading. Available in paprika (shown) and five other colors; $39.95 for the 20-inch pillow.

Above: The Civil War Gettysburg Twin Blanket is made of reprocessed wool and nylon, warm enough for outdoor evenings; $115 from Woolrich.

Above: The basic white Applaro Bench is 46 inches long, with a curved back for comfort. It’s made of solid eucalyptus wood with an acrylic finish; $90 from Ikea.

Above: Potted pathos and mother-in-law tongue plants live in a bright green Bullet Planter. Made from compressed, molded fiberglass atop powder-coated steel, the medium size is $165 from Design Within Reach.

Above: Ikea’s classic Tarnby Rug is made of flat-woven natural fibers; $99 for the 6-by-8-foot size.
