A Valley interior designer hosts an intimate alfresco luncheon for friends

An outdoor living space in Southern California exudes charm, which perfectly complements the design aesthetic of Van Nuys-based interior designer Sarah Barnard. Under a rose-and-wisteria covered pergola, Sarah creates a sophisticated table design inspired by the sea. Assorted tillandsia, or air plants, grow in natural-looking vessels, fishing weights anchor the table, and starfish napkin rings bring in a bit of whimsy. On the menu? Fresh salads made with local farmers market fare and rosé from Provence.
