With a background in theater working in the Props department, my friend Cour is a DIY extraordinaire. She is the kind of girl that is not afraid of power tools and knows how to use them (I am jealous!).

She put together the most awesome backyard, decorated with stuff she found at flea markets and junk stores (like Urban Ore) that she restored and transformed along with rusty metal artifacts that she collects. I love all the decoration and attention to detail, because it really shows the effort and love she has put into it.  Her space is perfect to hang out and she is a great party host. Did I mention that she is a grill master too?

She let me take a couple of pictures (after a lot of convincing) so I can share with all of you. So here they are. Get inspired!


Terrariums she made.

Mermaid in the garden.

Bird fountain (kiddie favorite).

Rusty artifacts.

This is not her or my pregnant belly 😉

Metal stars.

Paloma’s favorite spot is the comfy bed next to the chimenea.

Mine too! Especially after a glass of wine.

Isn’t it great? What do you think?
