Our Antique Garden

We adore antiques! Pieces with considerable age and high value continue to surprise us with how much character they accumulate over the many years. While pieces of artwork and furniture are at high stakes with antiquity, our eyes are on the antique pieces we can add to our garden! Take a look around our Los Angeles store for a peek at the pieces we have in store!

 Antique urns are perfect for potting or just to display solo. Cherubs always add charm to a garden!

So much detail is inlaid in the age of antiques! We love aged containers and articulate details acquired over time on antique pieces.

Something as subtle as hanging gates add an instant update; we love this idea in a garden! Aged, repurposed furniture potted with succulent arrangements is another way to add a piece of history to your garden!

IMG_9455 copy IMG_9474 copy IMG_9480 copy Rusted details and chipped paint are friends of ours. We gladly welcome signs of wear and age; thats exactly what makes any piece unique! Our patio is also filled with a vertical garden complete with rusted & antique pieces perfect for potting with your favorite plant! Stop by our Los Angeles store to shop our antique pieces!

Summer Green Thumb

Ah, Summer! We're enjoying this weather and the chance it gives us to get outside and into the Garden.  We've had some beautiful plants & flowers blooming around the store that we couldn't wait to pair with some of our new containers. This time of year is perfect for transferring and re-potting any plants in need of a new face lift, so we got right to work!

Basil, Oregano, Peppers, and Cat Thyme are striking in these white containers! We added our stake herb markers complete with chalk accents to identify our garden friends. If you're in a gardening rut, propagate and divid some of your Spring-flowering perennials. Or get your green thumb started and sow up any of the following: English daisies, forget-me-nots, pansies, lettuce, kale, broccoli, cabbage, radishes, and arugula for Fall harvest!

Happy Gardening!

A Perfect Summer Tablescape

Radiant heat, flourishing succulents, a small breeze, and a vivid palette of colors. The signs of Summer are ripe with a carefree ambience and we couldn't wait for the excuse to take our entertaining outside onto the patio. With our Pantry  stocked with dainty details + cool colors, we knew it was the perfect time to put a new spin on Summer with the perfect tablescape for any summer soiree!

Soft hues in cool colors set the tone for our entire tablescape. Succulents, worn votives, and soft details were a definite must we knew we had to incorporate!

Mix and match cool browns, teals & blues, white, and grey to stay on the cool side of the color wheel. We layered a striped linen between plates and tucked the back underneath the bottom plate for extra appeal. Votives make the cutest containers! Pot succulents and top with white pebbles for extra pop.

These tarnished grey votives were a perfect match. Amazing texture, right?!  We incorporated  these along with a creamy white votive that has a reflective, seashell-like finish. For the larger succulents we added a few larger white accent stones.

Slightly tarnished silverware is the perfect addition. They have just enough wear to be elegant & sophisticated, but also carry a whimsical Summer feel that is a necessary addition for a complete tablescape. Votives are mixed and matched along the table, lovely glassware is added, and you're ready to celebrate Summer!

While we love a bright, vivid palette for summer, we were in love with this calming tablescape that would literally set the table for a sophisticated summer event. Succulents, lovely votives, and captivating colors: what else can we ask for?! We hope you found some inspiration (and find a reason to get outside)!
