The West Elm in my neighborhood (Santa Monica) has been putting together some amazing events that are not to be missed. Yesterday morning was one of them: a design class on indoor gardening, showcasing vases and vessels designed by Shane Powers. The class was full of fantastic ideas and inspiration. You need to bring nothing but an open mind to these events, as they are free!! So, there I sat on a comfy sofa, sipping my coffee as Felix Navarro, owner and designer of The Juicy Leaf in Venice and Carlos Silva, design specialist for Pottery barn and inspirational Floral Artist from Glamgreen presented several inventive ideas of how to utilize the beautiful pottery and glass vessels designed by Shane Powers. It was a beautiful morning! Be sure to call your local West Elm and get on their mailing list for future events - you won't be sorry!
