When I was little and first learning to match colors in my clothes, I remember my mother telling me many times that I should think about nature when trying to figure if one thing goes with another. By her logic, everything looks good with green, because any colored flower looks great next to a pretty green lawn of grass. While I am not sure this is completely flawless fashion logic, the lesson of looking to nature for inspiration and trusting that if it works outside naturally, then is will also work in a more contrived way, has stuck with me.
When I think about decoration for outdoor spaces, I love things made with naturally found objects and I am especially inspired by design that uses sticks, twigs, plants, raw materials, antlers, or whatever else can be turned up during a walk in the woods. Fashion designer Rick Owens has designed a collection of furniture that will debut at London’s Sebastian + Barque gallery in September. I find this piece so inspirational and would love to see it created with a resin base for the garden.
