the sunday nook {mario testino}…

mario testino

though the british summer is not playing ball today, i’m taking it outdoors again this week…

you might be familiar with the hollywood hills home of celebrated photographer mario testino, but have you seen the patio?

against a backdrop of metal-framed french windows & whitewashed walls sits a subdued palette comprised of stone floors, wooden daybeds & earthen pots…

some sculptural planting & woven light shades add textural interest whilst graphic cushions & patinated lamp bases punctuate the setting with pattern & colour…

just the right balance of visual interest & decorative restraint in my book!

  1. All that’s missing is a giant pitcher of sangria! Fetch me my floppiest sun hat and a thick book, I’ll be plopped down in one of those lounge chairs for the duration!

i'd love to hear your thoughts...
