Dining by Design
January 16, 2013
Each year the San Francisco’s Design Center transforms from a showroom showcase into a host for a plethora of micro-dining rooms. Each with its own unique style and flair. What fun eh?! And all for a good cause too!
Better yet, last year, we were honored to join some of their creative forces.
Offering up our grape-wood airplan laden table top and vertical gardens and our oh so charming teardrop dioramas- we helped complete the dining scene with the Karen Villanueva and Paul O’Rourke’s installation.
“Creating a connection through design.” – San Francisco based design firms: Villanueva Design and Paul O’Rourke Design
Their dining room reflected the essence of our city’s contemporary urban-ism with a tossed in bit of organic – to make it oh so San Francisco. Nature juxtaposed with man-made created a warm and welcoming room.

A kick-off event and sale celebrating the in-progress plant decor re-do of Stable Cafe! We started in the cafe’s interior and moved to the courtyard, now we are trailing back to their secret fireplace interior courtyard and private back dining space. Lila B. is going over the top with this project – come check it out!
We’ll have the latest and greatest from our new product line, from designs that fit in the palm of your hand to towering vertical plantings. The fireplace will be ablaze, warm drinks will be flowing, and friendly faces abound.
Give a gift. Plan your space. Get inspired. Join us.

Wishing you a Magical Hallow’s Eve (and how to dress up your houseplants)
November 1, 2012
With Halloween almost under our belt and several more holidays on their way, we in the Lila B. studio got to thinking…How do you ‘dress up’ your plants with out being…shall we say, Hokey?
With a few tweaks- we adorned this terrarium with just enough ‘Spook’ to make its spectators turn their heads twice. Next up: we’ll add Autumnal spirit to make one Thanksgiving ready…stay tuned.
Until then here are a two quick tips on how to get your houseplants into the holiday spirit. We condone: evoke the feeling without going overboard with cuteness.
1) Add plants that evoke the season- here we’ve used Kalanchoe ‘Oak Leaf’- with its silvery undulating leaves we thought it had a ghostly appeal. Perhaps it could double next as a snow covered tree?
2) In our book, a tiny bit of store bought silly fun is just fine- especially if it makes you or your friends smile…real BIG. This tiny web & spider came straight from the five & dime as did our Owl friend…Our concept: make those sweet touches accessories (yes just accessories) to the scene. Let your fabulous Botanicals shine…
