Decorating With Slim Aarons

January 19, 2015

By Tab Byrum

I bought myself a little Christmas present back in December, a print of a Slim Aarons photograph.  Over the last few years I’ve noticed a trend of people using Aarons iconic works in home decor and it’s a trend I can totally get behind. Slim Aarons was an American photographer known for capturing the lives and lifestyle of the jet set and celebrities during the last century, particularly during the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s.  I love the whole mid-century vibe of Slim Aarons photos, the houses, clothes and attitude that you can feel oozing from the pictures, it’s all so GROOVY.

These prints aren’t cheap by any means, I got lucky with the one I bought when I found a sale going on at one of the high end internet outlets, if you shop around you can find some great deals.  Today we are taking a look at Slim Aarons work and how the work of a 20th century photographer is being used in 21st century home decor.  Enjoy!!!!
