This traditional cottage-themed backyard features earthy flagstone pathways surrounding a matching kitchen island, flanked by manicured grass and foliage. Resembling a European garden, this outdoor space is centered around the built-in Summerset grill and side burner, but not overbearing because of the modest size of the island and its matching color palette. Illuminated in the beautiful Los Angeles sunlight, the shades of beige and sand are vividly contrasted by the dark brown mulch and greenery. Designed by The Cutting Edge Landscape, this island is scaled beautifully to complement the quaint cottage style of the home.
