I was first introduced to the work of American photographer Slim Aarons by a client who thought the concept of their garden design was reminiscent of the era and styling of Slim's photographs and books.
She lent me two of his books to immerse myself in over a weekend and since then I have admired his work, completely in awe of the way he captures the lifestyles and landscapes of beautiful people and places in his stills.
The now infamous "Poolside Gossip" photograph has inspired much of my design work and is the inspiration behind this week's Garden Styler :: P A L M B E A C H .
FOR THE ALFRESCO & VERANDAH
In a Palm Beach design expect to find -
Clashing prints of chevron, zebra, stripes, florals and palms
Mixes of colour including coral, yellow, blue, white and pink
Bamboo, rattan and Chinoiserie furniture
For this Garden Styler, I've gone with more of a Palm Beach chic than a Palm Beach eclectic style. I've chosen a neutral palette for the furnishings, with the flowers of the plants adding the typical Palm Beach vibrant colour.
