Inside Ashley Tisdale’s new garden oasis and home office
“(Frenshe and Being Frenshe) are about living a non-toxic life, so when I saw how this would really be the theme of the office, I wanted to just use really natural textures and let the greenery do the talking. “The plan for the office was about creating a really calming environment that was inspiring,” Tisdale says. For everyone who works here.” advertisement. Although large windows showcasing the courtyard were already in the office space, Tisdale turned them into doors to allow greater access to the gorgeous greenery. “This office is part of the guest house, so it’s really just a space for my work, which I think has helped me with that. It’s great to have the space for my team with me and to be really creative.”
To give the plants a makeover, Tisdale called on Steven Block and Jana Pfeiffer of Inner Gardens, a Los Angeles-based landscape design team and garden furniture showroom, with whom she worked on her previous home. “I’m not a green-thumbed person,” Tisdale says with a laugh, explaining that Inner Gardens’ convenient maintenance service made it easy for her to bring in plants that might care about taking care of themselves.
It wasn’t just their expertise in plant life that allowed Tisdale to trust the Inner Gardens as collaborators on projects. “They have some of the most amazing pieces,” Tisdale says, referring to their expansive showroom of pots and garden furniture in Los Angeles, particularly valuable assets in a world of forever late shipments and overdue decor. Pfeiffer and Block knew that Tisdale was a fan of Swiss furniture pioneer Willy Goll—she already had a piece of him in her own space—so they packed her collection with more works by Goll in one section of the backyard.
