A Touch of Silver.

Romantic gems & jewels come in all shapes & sizes; we're measuring ours in Silver Accents! Our Los Angeles store has some of the prettiest Silver pieces that we've ever seen, with each piece uniquely distinct from the rest due to extra rust or a mysterious charm. Whether on display in the kitchen or potted with succulents, our deep longing for these romantic silver accents keeps us coming back for more.

Deep, dark, moody, and full of emotion. These silver pieces have so much history that wears away right on the surface. Just a touch of silver can add so much character to your space!

Darling details on silverware add something unique to a set table. Instantly change the mood with deep, dark colors that are perfect for a transition straight into Fall.

Better yet? An entire vignette of delicate Silver pieces! Now that's a way to make a statement. Dark florals perfectly compliment the styled set (and are a huge trend for Fall!) Not sure what else to do with these amazing pieces? We love to use them as containers! Pot them with your favorite succulents, top with stark white gravel, and you're got a piece everyone is going to be jealous of.

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!
