Like most L.A. locals， Ilya Pozin and his family try to take advantage of the city’；s gorgeous weather by doing almost everything outdoors. And lucky for them， they already had the perfect backyard for al fresco dinners， barbecues， and gatherings.
What they didn’；t have？ Outdoor dé；cor worthy of their scenic surroundings. Their sad set of grocery store patio furniture just wasn’；t cutting it. They deserved better!accent pillow case baby burlap
The family had previously used a traditional interior design firm to revamp his office and was unimpressed with the results for the high price of the services. So， as a tech entrepreneurpersonalised gifts for her， writer， and investor， Ilya decided to enlist Laurel &； Wolf to transform his patio.
Though they already had a beautiful backdrop filled with expansive green space， lemon trees， and budding bushes， they needed to replace the old furniture， clean up the kids’； toys， and land on a better layout. ； ；Overall， Ilya and his family wanted a space that felt truly one-of-a-kind， one that had a fun， eclectic style and plenty of personality.
Ilya and his wife Briana were pleasantly surprised at how little effort was needed from them in making their design dreams a reality. “；The entire experience occurred on my wife’；s and my timeline and required no hard work on our part，”； he remarks in his article for Inc.， which details the process.
Laurel &； Wolf Interior Designer Karen Schmidt provided multiple options on outdoor rugs to separate the dining and sitting areas， layouts for the fire pit， and a designated play space. Focusing on the sitting area， Karen enhanced the new teak furniture with blue decorative pillows and lots of potted plants to tie it into the lush surroundings.
“；When it comes to my outdoor space， I couldn’；t be happier with the results，”； Ilya says. “；In fact， comparing the patio to my office， which I had professionally designed for way more money， I like this space even more.”；
Now instead of going to the grocery store for patio furniture， he’；s going to pick up burgers and brews for his beautiful， new backyard.
