Malibu Gardens

Near Zuma Beach, feverishly working on surveying a client's home in Malibu and preparing it for a move in. The gardens have newly planted French lavender and Coleus...just how gorgeous is this??

Potted plants make for a stunning arrival.

Don't you love the chocolate walls against the stark white doors and frames? Honed black hardware add to the chic look.
Farrow and Ball paints are always a must. Their paint is simply superb given that the pigments lend themselves to an extraordinary color application....best of all this paint applies to walls like silk. The gorgeous doors and frames look extra chic in No. 239 Wimborne White. For a brown with fabulous results: 255 Tanner's Brown.

...Of course, the views may have something to do with wanting to live here more so than the stunning paint color....(click on photo to enlarge and see what I mean!!!)

Lots of work but what a setting to work in!

These photographs are breathtakingly beautiful. I found your blog by way of my mother in law's blog. Thank you for your thoughtful comments regarding our family pet Josie. She was a gem and she is missed profoundly by me and my children.

What an impressive view!! It must be fun working in locations like these. I just placed a small order on line. I just can't help myself.
