here is part 2 of my interview with carolyne roehm. this part of the interview i get to ask carolyne about all of her favorite things…i’ve always been mesmerized by carolyne’s life, beauty, taste and talent, therefore, this interview has been fun for me…
i thought it would be fun to interject some of my favorite images from her new book, carolyne roehm- at home in the garden/ order here. also, i added in some of my favorite pictures from her homes…i mean that pool with all the blue and white vases on the surround is one of my favorite images ever.
carolyne has had an amazing life, so when i spoke with her last week i asked her what was her favorite moment in time…she without hesitation said it was her years in nyc when she was working for oscar de la renta. she credits her grandmother as being the biggest influence on her in her childhood years, introducing her to gardens, and oscar as her influence in her adult year. they shared so many common interests- opera, music, fashion, food, interiors, and of course gardens.
the thing she loved about oscar was that he was always curious, always exploring, always growing and experiencing….i think i can say the same about carolyne, what a life! a fashion designer, throwing and writing books about parties, an expert in flowers and gardens, a blogger, a collector of blue and white, an author, a photographer, the majority of the pictures in her book she took, and now an artist…carolyne’s water colors throughout the book are extraordinary.
here’s to carolyne and her new book, and to her amazing life and to her passions, i have a feeling there’s a lot more to come!
