Then, knowing it was time for a change, they sought help from Barbara Olejnik, a friend who has since become a garden designer. Surprise! "Barbara made us think about the whole two acres," Ann says. They cleared vistas, made new beds, moved valuable plants to save them.

mad for MOD

Dean Martin does Gilligan's Island. Never happened, as far as we know. Still, it's a good way to describe the offbeat style of Lori Erenberg, an L.A. showgirl-turned-decorator who channels Carmen Miranda and designer Elsie de Wolfe, and whose 1950s ranch home pairs Rat Pack cool with Polynesian kitsch.
