The fire pit is the focal point of this outdoor seating area. It creates an intimate place to gather in the cool California evenings. The circular shape of the stone bench continues into the flower beds and encircles the fire pit creating a cozy area surrounded by the fragrance of the plants and herbs.
The intimate entry court of this Carmel residence is washed in morning light and protected from the canyon winds. The covered rear terrace overlooks the pool and views to the distant ocean. Weathered finishes, simple details, and a muted palette evoke the rustic architecture of central Italy. Hand forged ironwork, antique roof tile, and combining brick with stone are common design elements of that region.

The outside “dining room” is placed on the direct opposite end of the garden from the fire pit and bench. Beside the table, nestled among the foliage is a small fountain which burbles a soothing song. Mercury glass stars twinkle in the night to give this area a magical intimacy.
A new brick driveway and additional walkways welcome pedestrian as well as vehicle traffic while maintaining the residential scale of this historic home.

The outdoor kitchen is nestled in between the herbs, veggies and ornamental plants. Conveniently located next to the kitchen it has dedicated lighting and storage for tools and charcoal.
A tall aqua brimming fountain utilizes the area next to the detached studio creating another inviting place to sit and relax or perhaps read a book. It is centered at the top of the pool and counterbalanced by a large antique terra cotta pot holding a lime tree at the other end.
The black-bottom pool with an infinity edge is the centerpiece of this outdoor entertaining area. To the left is a view of the fire pit with a custom sculpture fashioned of steel logs. Teak patio furniture by Kingsley Bate.

Despite its low water requirements, the garden is lush and full with the sound of trickling water. The flagstone areas continue the circle theme and no-maintenance decomposed granite acts as a foil to the robust foliage and flowers. Before this renovation there was a pool which left no living space but now the garden is perfect for relaxing and entertaining.
