The Palm – The Palm…. oh, how we love thee!!
Hopefully, you’ll enjoy some of my loves in this week’s Saturday MMK Guest Post, a tribute to The Palm!! Enjoy a little Summer in the Tropics!! Where ever that may be for you!
Palm Trees, Palm Leaves…. are seemingly on everything and everywhere this special summer of 2021!!
They are in our minds, our homes…even on our bodies!! Artists, Architects, Fashion, Industrial, and Interior Designers have been inspired by the Palm – forever!! Not only are they green and natural, they evoke wonderful, tranquil visions and windswept memories of faraway lands, relaxation, fun, and much-needed vacance!!
My beloved YSL and Artist Marian McEvoy amongst Moroccan Palms.
Envision Palm Beach, Palm Desert, Palm Springs…even Palme d’Or Prizes, Nice, and Cannes!!
A little Riviera fun…strolling La Croisette with its swaying Palms and vistas! Beauty and Color and Life!! Along my way, I have learned the Palm Tree is actually an Herb…not a tree!! We learn every day
if we are lucky and curious!! Our lives have all been enriched by the many varieties and shapes of her beautiful leaves – fronds… Here are a few of my favorites! From wallpaper, stationery, dinnerware, and objets d’art!! Please enjoy!!
Celebrated American Artist Michael Aram’s Palm Collection was inspired while he was lunching with friends on a veranda by the sea! Nature has been his “special muse.” His work is well-loved by all! Couples especially enjoy registering for his fabulous collections to grace their new homes! Just yesterday, I helped a client – guest with an Olive Bowl as a shower gift for a Greek Couple from Michael’s Olive Collection. A beautiful Olive motif graced their shower invitation…so how perfect, how natural, and a symbol of peace!
These are but a few of his many tributes to The Palm….to enliven your lives and homes. Happy gift-giving – or for you!! xoxo
As you know, Beverly Hills and California have been home to me for more than half my life…so naturally, the famed Bel- Air and Beverly Hills Hotel hold special memories along with their glorious Palms! Do let me share their beauty and inspiration, many reminiscent of Hollywood’s Golden Age! Their incredible architecture and settings – surrounded by fabulous Palms bring tranquility, beauty and surely put air in the lungs and a smile on our faces!!
Bel Air Hotel Garden – Special Birthday….
It is always fun to return to the pleasure and comfort of our own homes and reminisce – bringing our tropical adventures and happy times with us… So, let’s entertain…with our windswept palm memories, relived and enjoyed again and again! You may even be inspired by the famed menus of the Polo Club Lounge or 1926’s Palm Restaurant – Lobster and all!! xoxo
