Aumont Gallery

In the California town of Ballard, Hélène Aumont has transformed the once-rustic grounds around her 1940s farmhouse  into a charming mélange of small and distinct French, Mediterranean and California gardens. The interior and furniture designer, born in Paris, grew up spending summers at her parents’ ranch on the island of Corsica, off the south of France. “It’s a chaparral where you can grow many things, very much like here in the Santa Ynez Mountains,” she says. “It’s such a strong tie. You always try to re-create what you most miss.”
