The Outdoor setting From Meghan and Harry Oprah Interview

Three days ago, Megan and her husband Prince Harry were sitting with Oprah outdoors in a garden in Montecito, north of Los Angeles. They are the neighbor to Oprah there, but the interview, which aired on CBS on Sunday night, took place at another neighbor’s house. 

Besides some of the bombshell news we all knew now, if you sit through those 2-hour interview, you might be just like us and cannot help noticing the beautiful outdoor setting with the typical lush Southern California landscaping and the comfortable outdoor chairs.

 Meghan and Harry Oprah Interview

First of all, we love the overall toner color scheme of this outdoor setting—the neutrals of grey, white and beige from nature. The colors on the furniture and the area rug echo the hues on the masonry flooring, which makes the outdoor living space very cohesive and harmonious and perfect for carrying any conversation. We also love the pattern on the area rug. It does make this outdoor space warm and inviting.

The nature-fiber like outdoor chairs they sit on look very cushy and comfortable. The wicker-like back and the wood frame design have the organic feel. The dotted potted plants is such a simple way to add interest to the setting without causing too much noise.

We like the low-profile of the round outdoor table which encourages a good conversation without blocking any views.

Since spring is coming, you may get inspired to plan your own outdoor living space. If so, we have good news for you here. You can purchase those chairs on Amazon and here are the details for the chairs:

  1. Chair’s back and seat cushions are nonporous and water-resistant, making cleaning any spill a breeze. (Please note that these cushions are water-resistant and not waterproof. Please do not submerge in water.)
  2. Each chair is 27.50” W x 29.50” D x 34.40” H. .The 29.5 inches sear depth means you can easily sink into the seat comfortably for a good conversation, a good read or a good nap.
  3. ACACIA WOOD: Made with acacia wood that brings a sleek and exotic look to your space, this durable hardwood naturally withstands outdoor elements and will not darken over time. Acacia wood is perfect as a solid, heavy frame that resists wear and tear.
  4. POLYETHYLENE RATTAN: Featuring a long-lasting woven finish, this style is not only incredibly durable but also provides a versatile appearance. The handcrafted details of this material allow this piece to blend seamlessly with your outdoor decor.
  5. SLAT DESIGN: The seating features beautiful open slat paneling, giving this set a sophisticated, classic look. This matches perfectly with the open backrest structure and rounded frame, offering this chair set a wonderfully homey feel to your decor.

Just a little caring tip here : These chairs are great for year-round outdoor enjoyment if you live in a very sunny, dry climate like Los Angeles. If you live somewhere with a lot of rain, you’ll need to take extra care that you’re cleaning the wood diligently and bringing the cushions indoors when it rains. In the off-season, these seats should be covered and put in storage to prevent deterioration. Acacia wood tends to turn gray if left untreated and uncleaned over time.

Great Outdoor Living II—-Lu Lu Powers’ Charming Outdoor Kitchen

Two years ago, Quintessence visited Lulu Power’s home in Los Angeles. The house is full of color, pattern, books, greenery and fresh flowers. And we totally fell in love with her outdoor bar—small, neat, layered with full of charm. If you haven’t heard about Lulu Power, here is a little info about her on her instagram: The Entertainologist. Cooker,Creator,Cocktail maker. Food Editor for House Beautiful. She is a well-known entertainer and we were very lucky to go to many events entertained by her before COVID-19. With approaching of 4th of July, we probably will have to stay at home again and spend quite some in our backyard for celebration. So we all need some inspiration to make sure we will have some fun time. We kicked off our great out series last Friday. If you haven’t read it, you can click here to learn more. Today is our series 2. And yes we will talk about Lulu’s outdoor bar by sharing Quintessence’s youtube video below.

9 Beautifully Landscaped Home Garden

Probably at this strange time,  the best getaway for some of us is a beautifully landscaped home garden.  I came across some stunning home gardens when I browsed internet today  and would love to share 9 of them that we fall in love with.

We love to see how lemon trees, olive trees, agave, other greenery  and flowers  add texture and color in these gardens.

Doubling Down Wellness

It is pretty hard for me to keep watching news all the time. So I start to spend sometime daily for meditation.  The experience is amazing.  It is time for us to double down wellness.   “Meditation is a vital way to purify and quiet the mind, thus rejuvenating the body.” —Deepak Chopra

When we meditate in nature, we bring a receptive presence to the natural world. It comes alive—and so do we. We no longer look at nature as an inert or pretty object, but as a living and breathing world of mystery and sensitivity, a realm of wisdom and learning that is always whispering its teachings to us. At this strange time, it may be not practical to go to natural for any activity, but if you have a backyard or house plants, you can  practice your daily meditation in your backyard or among your house plants.

Our Backyard Cocktail Party

Hope you are enjoying your weekends. For us, we continue  our backyard cocktail party in a little different style than last weekend. You can click here and see how we chilled out last weekend.

 

We had a big table setup this weekend since the grass was a little bit wet and we didn’t do a picnic style like last weekend. We used a lot of backyard greenery cuts, garden roses and we set our table right by a blooming  tree since that can be really romantic. So take a look below.

Tim McGraw, Green Day‘s Billie Joe Armstrong and Sam Smith also performed, while Demi Lovato, Lizzo and Lady Gaga made special appearances during the evening encouraging fans with messages of hope and positivity.

For us, we are also very excited to see a little bit how these celebrities live and what their living rooms look like. Read on to see our 9 takeaways on how these Celebrities’ live.

1. The navy blue sofas are the most popular ones in these celebrities home.

Alicia Keys’ mid-century navy blue tufted sectional is chic, comfy and stylish. An orange pillow just adds a perfect pop of color. The navy blue in the artwork over the sectional and her piano continue the blue theme. Then a wood oval mid century modern coffee-table breaks the navy blue theme and let the eye take a rest.
