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

April 11, 2013

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 outdoor classics.

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:
