I am crazy for Slim Aarons. Who, you might ask? Slim Aarons was kind of the Truman Capote of photography. He spent most of his time chilling with really rich socialites lounging around doing rich people stuff. You know like hanging out at their olympic sized pools in Palm Beach or posing in front of their sprawling mansion while leaning against a Bently or Rolls or some such car. Yes, it’s over the top, but it’s fascinating to look at at the .000001% in all their decadent glory. The photos aren’t staged and are almost like snapshots that you and I grab on our phones, except they’re not like you and I. Not. Even. Close.
I say that with no bitterness. The photos are amazing. They have a David Hockney painterly feel to them. I love them in decor. The rich vibrant colors of Florida, the Mediterranean and Switzerland are beautiful in any room.
I seriously want this one of CZ Guest. You know, just hangin with the kid and the pups. It’s perfection in every way!
Here is another shot of the Kaufman house in Palm Springs. The house is a Richard Neutra. That pant suit the blonde on the left is wearing is amazing.
See what I mean?
His photographs span pools, beaches and ski slopes. Here are some of my favorites.
Slim’s photos look fabulous in modern decor. I have been seeing them all over the place. They convey opulence, color and beauty.
Feast your eyes on these beautiful decors.
