A Mossy Scene with Magical Characters

February 5, 2013

In the early days of last spring photographer Caren Alpert and art director Pamela Nudel visited us at Lila B. with an idea- and a wondrous one at that! We put our heads together and dreamed up a Hobbit-like scene with the most magical of characters. We met up again at Caren’s photo studio and this is how our day unfolded…

With a gathering of moss, logs, mushrooms, carnivorous plants, and lovely spring blooms- we went to work to set the woodland scene.

Caren captured the precious details and tiny critters,

 

while Pam and Baylor planned our visual story,

and Sophie quietly clicked, photographing  us and the overall mossy scene.

Dining by Design

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.

Your wreath can live on – long after the holidays pass you by…

 

After the Bay leaves dry plant your Succulents in the garden…

Copper backed Terrariums. Each globe contains its own world filled with nature’s goodness.

Planted in a {Shutter} Box. After the holidays- fill it in- create yet another shape with living growing (easy!) Succulents.
