Located just south of Santa Barbara and Montecito in the beachside town of Summerland, botanik is a destination for garden enthusiasts, discerning designers and those anxious to indulge their senses. Set within the backdrop of a 1920’s Victorian, the boutique has garnered both regional and national acclaim for over a decade. The boutique's interior and private garden abound with unique finds from all corners of the globe.
Owner, Erin Taylor grew up on the beaches of Southern California and developed an early appreciation for organic, natural beauty. Tumbled stones, driftwood and sea glass were among her earliest curated collections. botanik is a reflection of Taylor's design style, "My style is uncomplicated, comfortable and eclectic. It's about simplicity of lifestyle. I prefer to spend time appreciating the beauty of something rather than having to maintain it. I am naturally drawn to things that get better with time, have history and tell a story; faded vintage textiles, reclaimed woods and old pottery covered with moss.
Taylor artfully blends her vintage finds with rare orchids, custom succulent gardens, outdoor furniture, boxwood topiaries, the latest garden and interior design books, candles, pillows, rattan furniture and unique accessories.
