At Inside Out Design, we strive to tailor your environment to best fit you, your property and your budget. We realize that every project is a unique, custom work which comes about as a carefully crafted collaboration between client and designer, the nuances of a given site, and complexities of program. We retain an eye towards a total environment that takes advantage of its place in the world, the movement of the sun, and a connection to a greater whole. Whether it be the design of rolling estate, a multi-family housing roof deck or the garden of your dreams, we are inspired by the desire to improve upon the condition of the built and the natural world, and create something our clientele will enjoy for years to come. We like to work with a variety of materials, styles and scales to best achieve a unique, appropriate expression for every project.

Oliver Sacks, on gardens:
In 40 years of medical practice, I have found only two types of non-pharmaceutical "therapy" to be vitally important for patients with chronic neurological diseases: music and GARDENS.
I cannot say exactly how nature exerts its calming and organizing effects on our brains, but I have seen in my patients the restorative and healing powers of nature and gardens, even for those who are deeply disabled neurologically. In many cases, gardens and nature are more powerful than any medication

This proposal is sited right in downtown San Francisco.The sculptural giant grasses hold multi-colored leaves, each with an inspiring inscription to commemorate members who have passed. Julianna has been collaborating with BAYS on this exciting project, and will be exploring other sites in San Francisco parks with them as well.

SIMPLE CLEAN LINES dominate the design for this Orinda mid-century residence. Complex slopes become gracious, wide lawns with seemingly little effort. Silvia Sylvestris marks the transitions, while bright Helichrysum petiolare 'limelight' stands ready to cascade over the walls.

This time of year we love the leucadendrons. Native to South Africa and a prolific winter bloomer, this prehistoric shrub has long bracts with inflorescences of flowers looking much like colorful, adapted leaves. Very low care, the genus has dozens of species to choose from to make a winter garden come alive.

We're excited to share a recently completed project which makes use of a strong yet subtle material palette and bold, bright hues. A relatively small space becomes an ever-changing interplay of light, shadow, form and material. See more at www.AboutInsideOut.com

We love our wall gardens at the office! Vertical gardens can thrive for years with minimal care - just good light and regular watering - and frequent admiration. Here we used Woolly Pockets, made from 100% recycled water bottles but look and feel like thick felt.

One of our current projects, a memorial park, will include a Labyrinth. We visited this one on a mountaintop nearby. A Labyrinth is "...an ancient symbol that relates to wholeness. It combines the imagery of the circle and the spiral into a meandering but purposeful path. The Labyrinth represents a journey to our own center and back again, out into the world. A labyrinth has only one path. It is unicursal. The way in is the way out. There are no blind alleys. The path leads you on a circuitous path to the center and out again."

An Ancient Chinese Gingko Tree Drops an Ocean of Golden Leaves

The Gingko is a prehistoric tree, existing some 270 million years ago including the Jurassic period. Over time it became almost extinct, but was carefully cultivated by Buddhist monks in monasteries, or in temple gardens in China and Japan. Today they are a common sight and showing gold these days.

This towering gingko tree is located within the walls of the Gu Guanyin Buddhist Temple in the Zhongnan Mountains in China. Every autumn the green leaves on the 1,400-year-old tree turn bright yellow and fall into a golden heap on the temple grounds drawing tourists from the surrounding area. You

Ensconced within the mountains of Sonoma, this landscape is part of a large estate that seeks to blend native vegetation and existing site features with a fiction of its own fanciful history. We had a chance to be very creative, playful, and to collaborate with a great design team.
