La Caze










So we all know how the blog community has opened our eyes to so many wonderful things that we could never have imagined.  I feel so very lucky to have greige connect me in so many ways to a great community of design minded people.  I was so excited when Angela and Renee contacted me while they were in California and I was even more excited to get a chance to meet with them and do my first official interview about greige and My Sparrow.  They are so super sweet and their accents are so fun!!!  

Angela and Renee have created an amazing line of lighting and lanterns that I am loving named La Caze.   They make custom pieces in addition to their standard running line which is fantastic.  Here is a little about the girls and the place that they call home....

When living in South Louisiana, you can find inspiration around every corner. The diversity and history of Louisiana architecture, expansive gardens and timeless elements incorporated into interior design continually inspire us. We met at the ball field when our kids were playing T-ball and were so pleasantly surprised that there was indeed someone else as crazy as we were about interiors, architecture and gardens. From that point on, endless hours were spent in creative endeavors. As a creative outlet, we began designing, building and remodeling every chance we got. As time went on, we became business partners in LaCaze and co-founders of the blog. You never know what wonderful surprises are around the next corner in life. Come along the journey with us as we share our love of interior design and architecture. We hope you enjoy and are inspired, as we take a take a stroll under the Spanish moss. 

It is just so wonderful to see where friendships can take us!

Check out my interview with them on their lovely blog Under Spanish Moss.

Shopping on La Cienega: Maison au Natural No. 819


Love the hanging baskets!

This reminds me of the shop he had at South Coast Plaza so long ago.

 Love the pup!





My love for the vintage framed flags never ends!




Design details are so important to a shop and to your home.
Little collections make everything seem so much more interesting.





Astier de Villatte and vintage subway signs- yes please!







I am totally loving those lights!



I recently had a chance to do a little shopping in LA. 
I visited La Cienega for an event and had a little time to spare so I was able to stop by some of the fantastic shops.  Everyone was very sweet and welcoming and the displays and pieces were absolutely wonderful.  Each shop is unique and full of great inspiration.  
As you know I am a big fan of Dan Marty and when I walked into his newest shop for the first time it was just as I had imagined, creative and full of the most wonderful things!

Organic Art by Paul Schick








I am loving the natural feel of these pieces by Paul Schick.  
He makes custom pieces for designers and private collectors so you could have a piece made to fit your space.  

So cool!

Grey and White in clean detail







I love the clean feeling of these spaces.  Simple and understated but fun and the shutters are so perfectly greige.  

I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  I finally got all of my plants in the ground and I bought a few more hydrangea and a new pink wisteria.  I cannot wait for next spring to see how it will look growing above my porch.

Happy Monday!

Versailles in the garden




The gardens at Versailles were so expansive and amazing.  I cannot even imagine the creative minds that it took to make such a beautiful statement.  I plan on spending a little time tending the gardens this weekend here at home.

What about you?  What are you up to this weekend?
