Table of Contents: California Cool

March 9, 2015

This week we’re celebrating California gardens (and dissecting a few favorites for ideas to steal). We’ll visit Big Sur on a misty morning, create Hollywood glamor with metallic pots, and add romance with grasses. Join us for a week of ideas for indoor-outdoor living:
