Mon Palmer x Bauwerk natural paint collab campaign is launching soon!!




I would just like to start by letting you know I absolutely L O V E outdoor spaces, particularly outdoor spaces for the home. There is not a day that goes by when I am not thinking about a style, researching techniques or dreaming of a wanderlust location that I can bring into a garden. 

Hence the name of my garden design studio... SLIGHTLY GARDEN OBSESSED.

Along with the fab outdoor design projects we get to work on, I also have a few exciting products and initiatives that have launched recently. Most are listed below for you to learn about. 

If you would like to work with us (GET TO KNOW OUR TEAM HERE) or find out more, you can get in touch HERE or you can book a consult HERE.

I get asked a lot if I design outside of Perth and the answer is HELL YES!! A lot of my work is done via Skype, Facetime and email to service clients Australia wide & internationally.. About 30% of my design work is on the east coast. My love of travel and living abroad has been a constant source of inspiration and has helped with blurring the boundaries of the world to allow me to connect with clients across the country and globe with ease. 

My fave destinations? There are many... But most are hot, humid + surrounded by azure waters - Italy, Croatia, Turkey + Mexico to name a few. And what's on the top of my need-to-go-to list? Morocco + Sri Lanka. You will find influences from wanderlust destinations in many of my outdoor designs.

Thanks again for taking the time to have a peek at my work & find out more about what I do. I hope you find some inspiration of your own within these pages. 

Now, before you go too far be sure to follow us on

Green Love Co. | Slightly Garden Obsessed

Green Love Co. Foundation

We are currently setting up the Green Love Co. Foundation, a place where we create community campaigns to build gardens for families in need. We raise funds through part proceed sales of locally manufactured luxe outdoor furniture, designed by Mon... And by collaborating with like-minded local and national businesses. 

This initiative all began from our community project last year, 'A Garden For Sare' www.sgoxblog.com/agardenforsare 

We wanted to make this a regular thing so Green Love Co. Foundation was born. 

We will be starting small, with our aim to gift one garden a year to a family in need. There will be an application process throughout the year, with the recipient chosen by a panel.

More details are to follow soon, once we have the new business structure underway and processes in place.

We'd love for you to join us on our journey via the Green Love Co. Insta page here.


Luxe Indoor / Outdoor Furniture

Introducing H BAR, our first range of luxe indoor/outdoor furniture.

This solid brass - weighing at over 70kg - statement piece indoor/outdoor occasional lounger (pictured right) will last a lifetime and is designed for all weather use. Patina will (and should!) occur.

Providing opportunity for local businesses is key to Slightly Garden Obsessed, which means each piece is handmade by traditional soldering technique locally in Perth, Australia.

High quality outdoor fabrics choices are by Warwick, Sunbrella and more.

Our custom designs will soon be featured at the Natalie Rolt Boutique, 92 Stirling Hwy North Fremantle and in homes and boutique hotels (fingers crossed) around Australia.

10% of each sale goes to the Green Love Co. Foundation.

CALI DREAMING... Mon Palmer x Bauwerk 

Mon has been an absolute fan of Bauwerk paints since the start of her landscaping journey in 2008. Their first collaboration was for a garden display at Garden Week in 2010. The display was a great success, taking out the Best Landscape award & Best in Show. MAJOR!!

Since then, Mon has specified Bauwerk's natural lime paints in nearly every one of Slightly Garden Obsessed's projects. And has also painted the entire inside and outside of their home in the local Perth company's Whitewash.

To say she's obsessed is an understatement. So when Bronwyn (owner) asked if she would like to create a colour range of paints for Bauwerk, it was only polite to oblige (FREEEEEEKIN' HELLLLS YEEEES).

The colours are available now from www.bauwerk.com.au or CLICK HERE FOR MORE


We are opening a DESIGN STUDIO!!

No longer will we be only online and working from the kitchen bench! We will also be found upstairs at Napoleon Close on Napoleon Street in the fabulous beachside suburb of COTTESLOE.

We cannot contain our excitement and are already designing our fitout... A little of our inspo is to the right >> 

We'll be soft opening at the end of July.. But will leave the big celebrations for when Mon gets back from Byron after the spring.

The studio will be our space for designing, holding events, gathering, Friday drinks (WOO!), meeting, dreaming, planning and creating. 

It will also be a place to view and try our products and furniture. 

It's be no means a big space, but it will be our space and I know you're going to love it as much as we already do... Hope to see you there real soon!

The design studio is NOW OPEN!! Visit us at studio 14 Napoleon Close, Napoleon Street, Cottesloe.
