Happy New Year! I hope 2015 is a fabulous year for you. Gardenique is starting the year with a few new exciting projects but I’m still in holiday mode so this post is less about work and more about garden dreaming…. One of my favourite gardens of 2014 to dream about is Patrick Dempsey’s (aka Dr McDreamy from Greys Anatomy) Frank Gehry designed family home in Malibu, California. The mid century modern gem was built in the 1960’s and has since had the interiors updated and outdoor areas re-designed by Shrader Designs (check out Scott Shrader’s website, his gardens are insanely beautiful). If I was a Hollywood millionaire this is exactly the kind of house I would go for and definitely the kind of garden I have. Relaxed, bright, light, warm and unpretentious a lot like Dr McDreamy himself (how gorgeous is his family) and full of great ideas to steal for your own understated, Malibu inspired outdoor space.
