From premiers to parties to A-list status, celebrities live big lives filled with special treatment. But when it’s time to relax, most love to find an oasis in the seclusion of their own back yard. You can live like a star, too, by setting up an outdoor space that pampers you and your friends and family. Take a look at the backyard retreats of these four celebrities for inspiration, and then visit your nearest Art Van Furniture showroom because we’ve got the look:
When Wayne Gretzky played hockey, he earned the nickname “The Great One.” Turns out he has great taste, too. Take a look at his Spanish-Mediterranean style home, nestled in Scottsdale, Ariz. One of 13 homes in a secluded development, the property includes this covered poolside patio for outdoor entertaining.
If you like Gretzky’s style, recreate the look by creating a cozy sitting area with four deep club chairs, such as our oversized Brunswick Chairs. The synthetic wicker material is durable and stylish, and the neutral cushions are classic and contemporary.
Oscar award-winning actress Hilary Swank has created a swanky and relaxed outdoor gathering area in her Mediterranean-style California mansion. Two curved sofas upholstered in sunset orange cushions flank a roaring firepit, creating an intimate spot for nighttime fun.
Create the look in your back yard with our Soho II Collection Sectional. The curved design is striking, while the light blue cushions are on trend.
Oscar award-winning actress Jodie Foster is known for loving her privacy, and her secluded California home provides just that, sitting on a quarter-acre lot on one of Hollywood Hills’ most famous streets, Flicker Way. With a brick patio, palm trees and gorgeous foliage, the Mediterranean-style back yard is a feast for the senses.
You can easily bring this look to your patio by simply adding the Dover Sectional. The neutral colors can easily be dressed up with toss pillows to reflect your mood or design aesthetic.
When you’re an apartment or condo dweller, a back yard can be a rare treat. Johnny Depp’s New York apartment included this hidden gem. With climbing vines and an earthy vibe, this patio is a great spot to start the day with a cup of coffee or end the evening with a glass of wine.
Create Depp’s hip, bistro-style look on your patio by choosing a set of sleek chairs that offer seating as well as style, such as these Golden Beach Chairs. The straight lines are contemporary and classic.
