Pumpkins at Rolling Greens

If you haven't noticed by now, we've gone on a pumpkin craze this Fall season. Who wouldn't?! Pumpkins are an easy + stylish way to make your home feel festive, even in this LA heat! From traditional pumpkins to oddly colored pumpkins, we've rounded up the different pumpkin species we're carrying in-store now!

White Casperita Pumpkins | These pumpkins are what you see stocked up at your favorite fall markets and are the perfect additions to home decor. They hold their creamy ivory color well and have a strong handle. These pretty pumpkins also have a sweet taste that eats similar to Acorn squash - who would have thought!

Autumn Color | If you're on the lookout for some truly unique pumpkins, you'll want to check out our Autumn Color selection. From striped gourds to pretty pink, warty pumpkins - there are an abundant variations of texture and colors that will take your Fall decor to an entirely new level. 

Knucklehead Pumpkins | True to their unique name, these warty orange pumpkins have an amazing texture + color story that adds a modern update to your traditional orange. These versatile hybrid pumpkins can be used for anything from carving, decor and even eating - perfect for knocking off every activity from your Fall bucket list!

Wolf Pumpkins | Wolf pumpkins are actually a newer variety and we were so excited to have them in-store this year! These pumpkins have a super strong handle that grows upright and a beautiful dark orange color.

Jarrahdale Pumpkins | These pumpkins have an unusual blue-gray hue and a very pronounced ribbed drum shape, making them a cool-toned show stopper. They create some extremely flavorful pumpkin pies and can grow from 6 to 120 pound with beautiful vines that extend up to 30 feet long and even 18 inches tall!

Fall Fantasy Pumpkins | These darling + romantic pumpkins come in a variety of colors including muted orange, ivory and a stunning teal. They help create a new color palette for Fall decor, and you really can't go wrong with any of them! We use these pumpkins for our signature succulent pumpkins arrangements - they make amazing centerpieces!

As you can see, we're loving every pumpkin that comes into our stores, and we'd love to see how you decorate your home with them! Make sure to share your designs with us by tagging #RGatHome on Instagram, and join us October 15th for our Harvest Event 10am-6pm at our LA location!

#RGathome: Bungalow Living with Sara Karkenny

Beautiful design, stunning light, and the perfect pop of green - the #karkennybungalow has everything you need for the loveliest of spaces. We’ve known the wonderful Sara Karkenny since her days of being a Rolling Greens intern and we are so excited to give you a peek into her beautiful bungalow today! We love the minimalist yet cozy feel of their home, with its rustic color scheme and simple statement pieces expertly arranged to complement the white walls. It’s always a great feeling to see Rolling Greens plants worked into our friends’ vision for their homes, and we’re totally inspired by how Sara mixed her picks into the living room! Keep reading to hear more from Sara about the bungalow, and find more inspiration on her Instagram.

“When my husband and I found our little bungalow (#karkennybungalow) we knew it was the perfect place to reside.  It sits between the ocean and our favorite local farmers market. In this at home shoot we did with Angelica Marie Photography, we wanted to capture the authenticity of our space and incorporate the story of our little home.  

Being an interior stylist, our aesthetic was quite important to us, and setting our home up as an oasis meant lots of plants!  With all of my clients, I try to teach them what helps their home the most so that when I am done creating their space they can continue to enhance it as they please.”

“Plants for me are the number one accessory any home should have.  It instantly brings life to space that other objects can’t.  Material things have to be paired with something that breathes or else the space will look cold and uninviting -  it’s just all about asking what you want your home to feel like.”

“When we were choosing plants we had to be mindful about how we would care for them and the best conditionings and lighting for each.  You always have to take into consideration that different plants give off different personalities and it depends on what your space looks like, not any plant looks good, there is careful and thoughtful consideration when I pick out foliage for my clients as well as for this little bungalow of ours.  For example fiddle figs, a popular type right now, pair really well with harsher silhouettes and materials like leather and jute.  It’s a soft edged plant so it balances well with the body of different types of modern/mid century furniture.”

"After interning for Rolling Greens during college, I continued to fall in love with their product long after I gave my goodbye hugs.  Their stores have such an amazing atmosphere, their visual team's creativity continues to inspire their customers and bring a nursery experience to a new level.  I love shopping at stores for both myself and my clients where the store itself feels inviting and beautiful and well loved. Working in retail for so long, the shopper's experience is such a priority to me, I am extremely picky about where I spend my time to source out product for both my own home and my client's homes.  I spend hours sourcing daily and want to gain inspiration along the way, and Rolling Greens provides that.  

Their plants have always kept so well.  The quality is amazing, especially with someone like me who does not have a green thumb.  Their staff is always so helpful and knowledgable, and that is half of the shopper's experience in my book. Rolling Green's provides a lot more than just their foliage, with wonderful events and all the creative collaborations they do, they create a mini world of beauty that you can find a little shopper's refuge in."

Huge thanks to Sara and Angelica Marie Photography for sharing your little corner of the world with us! Anybody else officially read7 to move in? All the heart eyes for the #karkennybungalow.

#RGathome: Behind the Scenes with Designer Max Humphrey

It’s no secret that we love nothing more than a bright pop of green in a living space. No, really - invite us over for dinner and we’ll probably try to sneak a house plant into your living room. One of the fun things we get to do at Rolling Greens is collaborate with talented interior designers to help them bring their vision to life with the perfect indoor greenery. We were so excited to work with Portland-based designer Max Humphrey this spring while he designed a bright and gorgeous office space for the amazing Meghan Rienks!

Max joined us at our Beverly location to choose the plants that best fit his California-inspired design. He let us know that the big thing he was looking for was a large house plant to cover a big vessel, so we started there. Since Max was looking for something bushier, with height and full leaves, we decided on a Fishtail Palm. We then chose more basket-sized plants to cover smaller vessels in the room, along with some to hang. On his favorite plants to style with, Max said “I like stuff that looks a little more wild...I like fluffy stuff with big leaves. Succulents are great - especially in California.”

It’s always a pleasure when Max drops in! We asked how he first began shopping at Rolling Greens:


“There’s a turning point with clients when they go to you for everything - down to the coffee table books, house, artwork or what color car to buy. And plants have become a way to make a room feel finished, because clients see houses in magazines and they look really finished - and the last step of accessorizing is plants, which bring life - it’s my favorite part. I latched onto Rolling Greens because it is well-curated. When you’re new to plants and you go to a greenhouse, you just get lost and give up. This one is tightly curated and manageable. There’s enough product, but not too much.”

It was so inspiring to be part of Max’s design process, and we wouldn’t be more obsessed with how he incorporated his picks into the final product - Meghan, can we move in? Read on for a few photos of the gorgeous space, or check out the full tour on Wayfair, Megan’s blog, or her fabulous YouTube channel!
