Creating an outdoor paradise inspired by Provence, France

Lewis residence. La Costa oaks, Carlsbad, California.

The home owner wanted to replicate the feel, color and textures she saw in Provence, France, here in her southern California garden.

We set about designing a feature that would be both functional and great looking, rustic and thoughtfully put together to maximize the outdoor living space.

So we chose materials that conveyed the feel of French region; red brick, field ledge stone and fig laurels, lavender, rosemary and grape vines

Our craftsmen produced uncommon detail in the decking carpentry and set the stones on the columns with a close tolerance.

For maximum effect, the columns are highlighted at night by LED accent lighting.
