Eye of the Day Garden Design Center Event

Two weeks ago I had the immense pleasure of attending a wonderful event at Eye of the Day Garden Design Center in Carpinteria, California. Luxe Magazine's Editor-in-Chief, Pamela Jaccarino moderated a discussion by Landscape Architects Sydney Baumgartner, Puck Erickson, Katie O'Reilly Rogers and Brent Freitas, Owner of Eye of the Day Garden Design Center. Attendees were served a delicious lunch paired with wine by Foxen Winery.

Following the panel discussion we made our way to Lotusland in Santa Barbara for a private tour of the magnificent estate. Purchased in 1941, at the encouragement of her 6th husband, Madame Ganna Walska began her transition from international socialite to garden designer. Moving through the estate is much like moving from one room to the next, each garden independent from the next creating a range of emotions as one walks the property. A gorgeous and engaging experience. Highly recommended.
