Tour A Modern California Home Filled With Color And Art

We came across this beautifully designed modern California home on the internet and fell in love with its drama. And yes, it is not a typical Cali mid-century modern house. It is a house with color, texture , art and elegant details. It is a house with full of personality.

The minimalism architectural form of the house provides a perfect backdrop for the fabulous art collections by the owner. The chic and glam creamy console table with brass hardware at the entry sets the tone of elegant vibe for this house, not even mentioned the top-notch wall sculpture installation above the console and through the house.

Outdoor Hiking And Picnic

We had spent much of the time in our backyard for cocktail parties and picnics last year due to the lock-down. And this year, with the still on-going pandemic crisis, we plan to do something different. The goal here is able to get away in nature and still enjoy the things we love to do in our backyard such as table setting over the weekends. So we searched the places that not only provide the amazing wildness with interesting trails to explore but also beautiful picnic areas in the park that we can just enjoy sitting around our picnic table. Last weekend, we decided to visit Irvine Regional Park. The park is so breath-taking. Irvine Park in Orange, California is a 160-acre park that became Orange County’s first regional park in 1897. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983. The park is so dotted with lush oak trees and is qiuite scenic for any kind of picnic. Then, there are quite a few trails to the deep mountains. Since this is our first time to come here, we will have to leave the hiking for another time. But here is our picnic table.

Have a glass of cocktail or wine, sit back and enjoy!

It was just so much fun to experience the different terrains. And we set up a picnic after both hiking.

Day One

We always found the most amazing plantations by the coastal lines. The blues and purples are one of our favorite colors to find in nature here. Our this year’s Valentine tablescape color scheme is inspired by these gorgeous colors that surround us whenever we hike in this area.
