Case Study: "Marilyn's Garden" York Mills and Leslie, Toronto.
Marilyn needed to maximimize her living and entertaining
space. She imagined a socially inviting pool and entertainment
area that embraced the needs of her family, yet reflected
a clean, naturalistic and classic feel to compliment her home
Lisa Aiken worked with Marilyn to create a design for her
garden and patio that suited her taste and style. Before the
ground was broken, Lisa consulted with Marilyn's landscaper
to communicate her vision. Then when the landscapers were
finished, Lisa came back to accessorize the garden and pool.
Lisa used Marilyn's favourite home items to accessorize her
backyard. She arranged dining sets, custom cushions, lanterns,
and luxurious seating into focal points. These eye-catching
views can also be appreciated from inside the house. Marilyn
wanted to add some new items to compliment her existing furniture,
so Lisa suggested some distinctive urns and filled them with
her speciality custom floral arrangements. Marilyn's garden
has now become an outdoor living space and sanctuary that
retains a warm, inviting charm.
