Maria and Blair have owned their home in Sherman Oaks, California for nearly seven years and they have completely neglected to garden or decorate the landscape of their backyard. They have very eclectic tastes, are well travelled across Asia and would like their backyard to reflect a specific style already established inside their home. In addition, they have recently adopted a two-year old boy named Nam who will also require enough space left to play. Jamie's recent trip to India provides the inspiration for what will deliver the perfect design for Maria, Blair and Nam's backyard. A raised, rectangular-shaped swimming pool surrounded by marble tiles and over 150 marigold plants are the first steps to establish a serene, sanctuary feel which Jamie believes the homeowners will appreciate. A series of wood carved Mughal arches surrounding another raised deck with a dining table and a floating daybed sits just beyond the pool to provide the homeowners with the perfect environment for entertaining guests or simply to relax in. And yet, the yard has just enough space leftover for Nam to play while being protected by a nearly invisible, childproof pool fence in this India inspired Outdoor Room.
