Jonathan Adler And Simon Doonan's Shelter Island, NY Home Is A Botanical Wonder (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

We have to admit, when we first saw what Jonathan Adler and Simon Doonan's Shelter Island, NY home looked like when they bought it, we were shocked. But after checking out the "before" and "after" photos on Gardenista, it was evident that the grounds were originally sad looking and undernourished. But knowing how chic and stylish this design duo is, we knew they would never have kept it like that for long.

The two hired Vickie Cardaro of Buttercup Design Group who created a relaxing outdoor space complete with stunning plants, flowers and soothing accessories. Their serene pool, for example, is surrounded by Elijah Blue fescue on one side, and a cool cabana on the other. The rest of the property has a more exotic vibe with crushed shells as driveway gravel, pine-needle mulch and Alluaudia cactus from Madagascar.

We have to give these two props for really creating a space that's one-of-a-kind, but of course now we're wondering: Can we come over for a game of ping pong?

Scroll through the photos to see their amazing home and be sure to head over to Gardenista for more information.
