When the DeLucas bought their 1925 Spanish-style house more than two years ago, it needed work. But most of the original features were intact, making the period house irresistible to them. The couple started by creating a beautiful new custom kitchen with gorgeous distressed cabinets that emulate a romantic, old-world feel. Now they are eager to redesign their awkward backyard and give it the same worldly charm. They want their backyard to be a true extension of their home.
Low-cost additions like cottage birdhouses and a rustic window box help carry the cottage-garden theme.
