'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Star Kathy Hilton Gives Us a Tour of Her Gorgeous Backyard

Kathy Hilton loves to entertain, and considering that she lives in a spacious home in tony Bel Air, it’s no surprise that it often happens in her backyard.

That’s why the entrepreneur and actress, who has four children, including Paris Hilton and Nicky Hilton Rothschild, recently worked with Amazon and interior designer Mike Moser to revamp her outdoor oasis — in just under three weeks. Admitting that previously her backyard was beautiful but “one note” with wicker furniture, Hilton desired a more dynamic design scheme. Thanks to Amazon, she was able to source a range of chic furniture and accessories from several different collections to boost her outdoor space’s visual appeal.

“I wanted to bring the indoors outdoors, because we really love to entertain, barbecue, play games outside, swim and play tennis,” Hilton told Good Housekeeping.

“I’m really loving how the teak wood pops with the light stone flooring,” Hilton says of her backyard transformation.

Leaning into her transitional design style, Hilton incorporated multiple seating arrangements to accommodate her large family and friends (her teak wood pieces as well as lounge chairs featuring a dark metal frame are among her favorites), along with elegant touches like pagoda umbrellas and lemon trees set in tall wicker baskets. “I’m still adding and layering,” she says.

“It looks like it’s been collected and curated,” Hilton says.

Hilton relied on an assortment of tall planters to add texture and visual interest to her backyard.

One of Hilton’s favorite outdoor decorating tips? “I bring in color with pillows,” she says, noting that she changes them according to the season. “I’ll have a bohemian night with very colorful pillows with bright oranges and turquoise, or I could do a preppy look with stripes. It’s nice to just have really solid, simple and clean furniture, and then bring in color with your accessories.”

The backyard, which Hilton crafted with the help of designer Mike Moser, has a cozy indoor feel.
