The photography of Slim Aarons captured the glamour of Palm Springs during the 1970s, featuring poolside scenes at the iconic Kaufmann House in his “Poolside Gossip” and “At the Linsk House” images (shown above, and available right now on One Kings Lane). You can inject some poolside glamour a la Slim Aarons in your own back yard with one of our favorite finds, the customizable patio umbrellas made by Santa Barbara Designs. Manufactured here in Southern California, each umbrella is custom-crafted and one-of-a-kind, and built to stand the test of time and weather even the harsh desert climate. There are so many options to choose from, whether you go the yellow and white route in keeping with Slim Aarons’ images, or come up with something completely unique to suit your fancy. We’re particularly loving the Doubler Decker style with a scalloped edge and bullion fringe (shown below in blue and white), but we’d be happy with any of these beauties!
