Shop The Look of This Luxurious California Yard

Design elements are the icing on the cake, defining the look and feel of a landscape.

This Fullerton, CA yard is no exception. Seeking a crisp, modern style with a little Spanish flair, Yardzen included a series of design elements to establish a luxurious-but-livable atmosphere that embraces the Southern California landscape.

From plant containers to light fixtures, throw pillows to coffee tables, you’ll find shoppable links for every design element your designer selects included with your Yardzen design.


Front yard, concrete walkway, sitting area on front porch, flower beds and pots, garden lamps.

The front yard balances native wildness with modern hardscape, with shaggy ground cover overlapping the edges of an oversized paver path. Blonde wood, cool concrete, and pale stone establish a sun-bleached palette that is reflected in the planting’s dusty hues.

Patio furnishings emphasize this look with matching wood benches and table, and pillows that cue off white stucco walls and pale blue succulents.

Minimalist path lights casually signify an upscale design, while stone planters elevate Agaves to punctuate the entry path, putting a desert twist on a traditional design element.

The themes established in the front yard carry on in this pool zone.

Wood furnishings repeat the light tone of the deck and the front porch, while chunky white pillows offer a comfy place to bask in the sun with company. A pale rug expresses an outdoor living room feel, while further cementing the bright and restrained color palette.

Stucco walls and decorative tiling on the pool continue the design’s subtle nods to Spanish patio design.

Pillows can do a lot! While more Bohemian designs may opt for a bright or patterned pillow, here we see the nature-meets-modern feel expressed through the natural fiber pillow, set upon elegant teak and white chaise lounges.

Orange trees and a row of upright evergreens set a casual Mediterranean tone, while vegetable beds counter the upscale design with a touch of earthiness.

Fenced graveled backyard, outdoor sitting area, fire pit, trees, flower beds, lawn, lanterns.

Especially in hot climates, designs should embrace the nighttime.

Fire pits provide a great outdoor activity to enjoy with family and friends in the cool of the evening. This circular concrete pit doubles as a shelf for drinks, and continues the modern material theme seen throughout the yard.

Minimal light fixtures offer dramatic lighting to frame the fire pit zone, while decorative lanterns give it a touch of extra style.

Rattan candle lantern with metal handle

16” Brigton Rattan Lantern, Crate&Barrel



Backyard outdoor sitting area, fire pit, lanterns, lawn with concrete walkway, plant pots.

Consistency is key, and this design has it. The concrete and blonde wood we found upon entering the yard works its way through the entire property, culminating in this elegant California room.

Concrete floors ooze modern style, while keeping bare feet nice and cool (and if it’s too cold, pop your feet on that cozy rug). Meanwhile, the wood coffee table and chairs enjoy a fun call-and-response with the wood-paneled ceiling.

While you’re looking up, enjoy that playful pendant light. Together with the tabletop lantern and fiber throw pillows, it evokes the same nature-meets-modern theme we find throughout the design.
