Mark Zuckerberg is one of the richest men in America, but his Palo Alto, California home is surprisingly modest in appearance. OK, so it’s 5,000 square feet and features luxuries like heated bathroom floors and a pool and spa, but its design and furnishings are down to earth for the billionaire couple and their new baby girl.
We love the secluded feel of the fenced 17,000-square-foot yard. Its outdoor pavilion features comfortable furnishings and a fireplace, making it an awesome hangout for friends. If you like the Zuckerberg’s backyard style, we’ve got the look:
Wicker furnishings give the Zuckerberg back yard the feeling of an outdoor room – a place to curl up and chat with friends. Our San Jose Lounge Sofa and Chair would be a perfect choice. The wicker material frame offers easy maintenance, while its rich brown color provides a nice contrast to soft yellow cushions.
Instead of using a cocktail table that matches the sofa and chair, the Zuckerbergs chose a wooden table. In fact, mixing materials in outdoor groupings is a big trend for 2016. Our Pratt Cocktail Table would be a great choice. In addition to being beautiful, it’s ecofriendly; the . table was made from teak that was reclaimed from old structures including barns, houses, or flooring.
If your back yard doesn’t have a built-in fireplace like the Zuckerberg’s, you can easily add a firepit to create the same ambiance. Choose a wood-burning model like the Scallop Firepit, or go with the easy of gas and add the Talbot Fire Urn. Then gather with friends and create memories to post on Facebook later.
