Back in the Studio: Jazzed about Winter
September 10, 2010
What?!? Winter?!? Before you shake a treasured last day of summer blossom in our direction… let us explain! It is true, we are a little stuck on winter in the studio at the moment, because it is the focus for our latest collaborative venture with some of our favorites.
Who you ask? Well… as you might recall we are helping to create improvisational still life and living portraits of the four seasons with a very talented team of creatives.
Using jazz as our point of departure, we played with a pair of forgotten champagne glasses in the still life and a stunning model named Alexis who was brave enough to allow us to adorn her flaxen hair cotton pods and a wee mouse.
Perhaps the longer days of Summer provide the most befitting moments to contemplate winter? What do you think?

Mad About Spring- Mad About Sophie!

Have you ever wondered who is our favorite photographer here at Lila B. Design? Have you wondered who wields a pencil like you would not believe when design-time rolls around? Our dear Sophie de Lignerolles is the Resourceress we cannot get enough of!!!
Gifted with a keen eye for color and resourceful hands that make magic out of found items, Sophie has been an indispensable part of Lila B. Design since shortly after it was created. Sophie manages our lot garden- ensuring it is bursting with city-grown goodness and as the talented house photographer, composes a vivid record of our growing things and fanciful arrangements. With an M.F.A. in Painting and an education in the fine arts that has taken her from Europe and New York to San Francisco, Sophie embodies cultivated artistic sensitivity with a tape measure on her hip: a combination that lends itself to tackling the most challenging floral and garden design projects with ease.
Do you an idea percolating that is curious or curiouser? Would you like to know how to transform a parking lot into…

Eye on the Bay… and Eye on Us- Adorning Cavallo Point for Channel 5
March 29, 2010
CBS Channel 5’s television style team at Eye on the Bay recently featured the historic lodge at Cavallo Point for a set of interviews… and we were invited to set the stage.
We took to the assignment with zest, assembling a combination of ranunculus, hellebore’s, freshly blooming western red-bud to inspire and complement conversation.
As floral stylists, we consider the mood that an arrangement will set during an event. Sometimes we want it to make statement, and other times we want it to inspire others to speak.
Tune in on Channel 5 on Monday May 17th at 7 pm see just how we decided to complement the history and beauty at Cavallo Point with some fun Spring floral arrangements.
