Kari Herer- new prints



we have always loved Kari Herer's work at Rose Bredl and her newest collection of prints is no exception. I was excited to see them featured on Oh Joy! last week and thought I'd post a couple of my favorites here as well. Love their beautiful feminine quality- these prints would be so lovely in a pretty bathroom or next to a vanity.

Its a mudluscious, puddle-wonderful day and we're tucked cozily inside. Good thing the outdoors are always in, here...

Market Days wear/carry

Farmer's Market days are coming soon! I am really looking forward to the days of fresh fruit and vegetables that come with market season. I love the idea of throwing on this easy chambray shirtdress with a pair of leggings and sandals on a saturday morning and heading out the door. The perfect market tote bag? This medina jute tote we just got in at Rose Bredl, of course. Its deep and roomy with just enough structure to put your market finds in safely.

peonies...peonies...



We are on the brink of peony season and I CANT WAIT! I can't wait in a all capital letters kind of way... I can't wait to put a few stems in one of our recycled spanish glass vases (a la above) and set them in a sunny window where they will be endlessly delightful. swoon.

Its a jungle in here

I love how lush and green this time of year is! The store is brimming with succulents and various other potted plants right now (and more coming next week) and I love to be surrounded by all of the gorgeous greenery. So pretty!

plantspeople terrariums



My friend Deepa made this incredibly beautiful terrarium with air plants and moss and I am dying to have one like it! If you live in the bay area you should definitely check it out- here are some of her other works of art

Herbs have arrived at the Bredl! This weekend is a great time to get your herb garden growing- think of all the delicious recipes that await them! (and yes, I made a bad pun as today's headline...) Here are a few cute herb garden ideas making their rounds on pinterest for your inspiration:

for the green goddess

This little collection of green goodies at Rose Bredl makes me happy. The new chevron makeup bags from utility canvas are SO cute and just the right amount of feminine and sensible- and sturdy enough for everyday wear and tear (throw it in your day bag with no fear.) Add all natural verbena soap and a set of rifle paper herb notecards and you have a perfect gift, too. (I know a girl who would just *love* this!)

Behind the scenes: our photo shoot with Big Rock



We thought we'd share these beautiful photos catered by Comfort Photography from behind the scenes of our recent photo shoot with our friends, bridal store Big Rock Little Rooster. Everything looked so soft and elegant and ethereal- it was such a fun event. Stay tuned for photos from JoJo photography of the shoot itself

dreaming of: patio days

My husband and I just bought a house (exciting right!?) And despite the fact that it needs major rehab work on the inside, all I can think about right now is creating the perfect summer oasis on the back patio. I cannot wait to spend summer days reading in the sun, and summer nights grilling out with friends and family. I'm hoping to make a few of these goodies permanent residents in my garden.

* Rose Bredl carries these indoor/outdoor goodies!

Vintage elegance

Photobucket
I love the vintage feeling of this sprawling arrangement Mary made the other day. It is so elegant and lovely with its fragrant jasmine, antique hydrangea, pale pink ranunculus and bright tulips- absolutely luscious!

We hope everyone had an amazing Easter and a chance to relax over the holiday. See you soon!

Rifle Paper

Photobucket
We are so excited about our new boxed sets of notecards from Rifle Paper. Though we don't carry many paper products, we couldn't resist their adorable garden themes- they make the perfect gift for the friend with a green thumb (the perfect size to tuck in an Easter basket, I'd say.)
