Join Lila B. Design at
Stable Cafe, 2128 Folsom St, San Francisco, Ca

Warm your hands around a drink, savor some fresh pie by Three Babes Bakeshop, be dazzled by Carrie Kjellesvik‘s modern handcrafted jewels, and last (but not least) say hello to us and check out our newest living arrangements. If you’re visiting at Noon, we’ll provide you with some of our methods on how to make your very own holiday gift. And at 1pm you’ll tap your toes to some old time ‘feel-good’ music until we close up shop at four.

Just Another Morning in the Lot Garden

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 a garden or adorn an old shutter with succulents?  Consult Sophie, Lila B. Design’s master of creative reuse and re-integration!

Are you a city-dweller with a penchant for re-purposing and greening your environs?  Do you have limited space and a modest budget?  Well friends, Bob Vila has you covered and in this weeks inspiration gallery by Hillary Geronemus you can glean some techniques from our very own Lila B.Design.
Highlights include an exciting take on the vertical succulent garden and a fanciful living roof for your best friend- all from locally re-purposed materials from places like Building REsources!  Okay… so while the country may always have more plants, as long as we have a hand in things- our cities will be greener!
