Outdoor Fabric with John Eshaya

I stand in envious awe of the eclectic Los Angeles bungalow garden that belongs to John Eshaya, the founder of Jet clothing.

I love the look of layered textiles and flowy fabrics in the garden but I can’t decide if I can handle it.

Can I live with all these outdoor fabrics being exposed and all that goes along with it (bugs taking up residence, dust and dirt in the fabric, and probable mildew….or protecting it by constantly taking it down and putting it up and taking it down….).   I need to experiment, perhaps all these textiles aren’t as wrought with problems as I imagine them to be.   New England weather and its extremes brings so many materials to their knees – surely these beautiful fabrics would be no exception?

The shrine of kitschy religious statues that look like those that my parents made in the 70’s is however something that can happen in my garden.  But I am thinking to change them up for a collection of animals….like a little Serengeti on the garden coffee table.  Yes, that would be perfect.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    Same hesitation here in central Wisconsin, AKA “the Devil’s Dome”. I paint my deck every year with Lifetime/25 year paint. I have an outdoor shabby chic metal couch crying out for fabric seat covers on the plastic cushions and an added comfy pillow. I’ll see how that goes. Everything seems to get ground down to its base components here, too.

    Im with you, it’s pretty, but the fear of creating habitats for insects so close to where I sit is a little scary. This would be nice for a special occasion, but I can’t see leaving this out all season long.
