Backyard Bliss: Conjure a Global Oasis Outdoors

This year seemed to be the year without a winter out here in California. Back East people are still contending with snow and rain and cold temperatures – meanwhile here in LA, people are walking into the store in sun dresses, large brimmed hats and shorts. With weather that errs on the side of high 70’s and sunny every day, it’s no wonder that some of the perennial favorites at MIX all seem to be outdoor items. People in these parts spend a great deal of time outside and naturally want to create spaces to help them do so.

It’s because of this that people who visit MIX come in and walk straight outside to our gardens seeking Buddha Fountains, Indonesian daybeds, Carved Wood Panels, Moroccan lanterns and Thai Pots. When I ask them what I can help them with they usually tell me they’re hoping to create an outdoor area with a “global vibe” to which I usually reply “you’ve come to the right place.” Our gardens at 331 S La Brea are full to the brim with all of those things and more – furniture and accessories from around the world that can help you create your very own tranquil, beautiful and fully outfitted outdoor global oasis.

In honor of today’s warm temps and our summer-ready clientele, below is an article from Houzz on the topic. Click through the slideshow and read on to get some inspiration for your own outdoor project, then click the Shop link below to find everything you need from MIX to get it done. Better yet, stop by and walk through the gardens! It seems like that’s where all my customers are today anyway.
