Dealer Spotlight: Potted in Atwater Village and more


Dealer Spotlight: Potted in Atwater Village

What happens when two creatives from the film industry with a shared love for gardening and modern design start a business? Potted – one of the most innovative outdoor and garden stores in Los Angeles.

Patio Furniture and Planter Store

Their mantra, “Indoor style for outdoor living,” is made evident with every stylish planter and designer piece of outdoor furniture. Each item and product line is hand-picked by owners Mary Gray and Annette Gutierrez to create beautiful outdoor environments that are designed much as any interior would be. In fact, Gutierrez’s own garden was recently featured in Sunset Magazine for its unique take on landscaping:

“To transform the 3,000-square-foot yard, she created a series of outdoor rooms landscaped almost entirely with potted plants. ‘I get to redecorate over and over,’ says Gutierrez. ‘I just move my pots around a little and I have a whole new yard.’” – Sunset Magazine

Inspire Me Monday: Celebrating Earth, the Architectural Way

In honor of Earth Day, this week we travel to the small, scenic town of Melany Australia, located near the Glass House Mountains. There we find a house that celebrates the surrounding environment while minimizing its impact, the ‘Glass House Mountain House’ by Bark Design Architects. The Great Outdoors in the Outback

“It celebrates economical finishes, directness, authenticity, natural, textured and unadorned surfaces which are embroidered with highly crafted timber elements and pieces. Surfaces, finishes, and details exhibit the Japanese concept of wabi sabi – the beauty of things imperfect, impermanent and incomplete, allowed to weather and evolve with time.” -Bark Design Architects

For sustainability, the house was built with natural cooling and lighting, harnessing available breezes and winter sun, using locally sourced hardwood, plantation grown plywood cladding and lining, recycled Blackbutt timber floors, local quarry rock, and endemic garden species. More info on this breathtaking home can be found here.
