image.jpg

We say forget what you think you know! Drought tolerant doesn't have to be dull, colorless, or boring. We believe the beauty is in the details. With the lack of water available due to the five year drought California has placed many restrictions on watering your garden. Luckily for us our talented team knows how to re-imagine your environments from planted container gardens, to sprawling backyards and large commercial installations. Drought tolerant gardening will provide lower water usage and reduced maintenance. And who doesn't love beautiful backyards that are easy upkeep? drought tolerant landscape

You might object to the idea of saying “au revoir" to your traditional lush green grass, as many people do. However, the experts at Rolling Greens know the vast amount of plants that are California friendly. There’s a number of plants that can survive even the hottest of summers. Many drought tolerant plants might even surprise you, we’re looking at you lavender and rosemary!

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.

To see & shop more of our Silver collection, stop by our Los Angeles Store!

Our Spotlight: Soko

Local artisans & small businesses have the non-replicable aspect of putting immense detail & purpose into every action they take and every service they provide. How can you manufacture the love put into a handmade piece of jewelry? Simply put, you just can't! With our LA Summer Marketplace this Saturday (we hope to see you there!) we had to share some of our vendors with you!

Soko is our special vendor who is teaming up with us for our special Pop-Up Shop event, and we're so excited to have them! We had to share what their company is all about and how their impacting the community.Soko1Soko2

Soko was created in 2012 by women for women to help “fashion a better world” through the equitable direct trade of beautiful goods between artisans in the developing world and web consumers worldwide. Working in bottom of the pyramid communities around the world, the Founders realized that by leveraging technology and existing infrastructure in an innovative way, they could create a platform to enable any talented artisan to participate in international trade. Recognizing a global need, as well as global opportunity, to disrupt these systemic patterns of poverty found across the developing world’s creative economy, 

The artisans you see above are just a few of the many talented individuals who created the beautiful jewelry & accessories available for purchase on Soko. Each has their own story and unique sense of culture that they inject into their craft. Each piece is one-of-a-kind; each has a story to tell.
