By day, Kyle Richards' expansive backyard is typically bustling with friends and family utilizing the expansive grassy landscape and in-ground pool with surrounding lounge chairs, among other features. When the sun sets, however, the outdoor area exudes tranquility thanks to multiple poolside fire pits.
As seen in an Instagram Story posted by The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member's daughter Alexia Umansky, stone fire pits surrounding the sizable swimming area offer a stunning glowing light around the property at night.
Sitting by the fire is clearly a beloved activity for Kyle's family. According to a recent Zillow post, her $8.25 million Encino mansion boasts a whopping eight fireplaces. Kyle has repeatedly showcased one stunning fireplace in particular on her Instagram Stories, a white and gray marble ingle that pops against the mantle’s classic, ornate carvings.
Kyle keeps the cozy-chic vibe going in other parts of of her homes' outdoor areas as well. Kyle's daughter Farrah Aldjufrie recently shared via Instagram that another part of her Encino backyard is adorned with twinkling white lights. According to the post, the "fairy lights" are mixed in with the greenery growing on the pillars of Kyle's garden porch.
Although it may be a while before Kyle can host one of her famous backyard parties due to social distancing amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, based on Instagram Stories, it seems the outdoor space is getting ample use by all members of the family amid the pandemic. Still, the group is finding ways to stay busy indoors as well. “We have been home cooking, cleaning, eating, watching movies," Kyle recently shared. "And starting to get a little stir-crazy already.”
To combat stress as the global health crisis continues, Kyle has amped up her time in the kitchen. "Today I have felt anxious," she captioned a recent Instagram Story video of the meal she was preparing. "But cooking makes me feel better."
