EXCLUSIVE: LEA MICHELE’S INSPIRING BACKYARD TRANSFORMATION
What’s in for spring? Statuary poodles and garden salads, of course.
When actress and singer Lea Michele asked us to help transform her outdoor space, we jumped at the chance. “The two things I wanted were to add color and to make it more comfortable,” says Michele of her idea for an outdoor space better suited to hosting in LA’s near-perfect weather. With that in mind, our own Estee Stanley and Mat Sanders reimagined spring’s palette in fresh Sunbrella fabrics, plopped concrete poodles from LA’s Inner Gardens on the poolside, and transformed Lea’s space into an outdoor wonderland using mixed pieces from Crate & Barrel‘s spring outdoor collections. Read on for Lea’s tips on nailing the looks she loves most in your own backyard.
I also didn’t believe anyone until I saw it because that is too awesome, like no way! Then when I saw it I knew it was real. I told Lea I loved it; then she ended up cutting one of my songs recently on her album. That whole thing keeps blowing my mind. I wrote “Empty Handed” on her album Louder."
