See You in Santa Monica: Check Out Our Demo at the New Potted @Lazybones Shop

When we first set out to build our vertical clay pot garden for Whole Foods Market, we half-jokingly said we’d take it on a world tour, starting with the balconies of our friends Jill and Tim. Well, we had no idea the places our pots would go! Earlier this year they were featured in Better Homes & GardensThe pots have racked up over 10,000 pins on Pinterest.

And now, this DIY is headed to an audience in Santa Monica: Ryan and I will be demonstrating exactly how to make a vertical clay pot installation during this month’s grand opening celebration of Potted @Lazybones.

Vertical Clay Pot Garden

We hung our first vertical clay pot installation on our friend Jill’s balcony.

This winter, we helped our friend Tim King make his own rockin DIY version with wider, more shallow pots and succulents.

Potted Store - Los Angeles

Potted first opened in Atwater Village/Los Feliz in 2004. It’s now an LA retail staple, carrying planters, gifts, decor, plants and furniture dedicated to outdoor living. Its new Santa Monica location opens on Memorial Day weekend.

Westsiders, rejoice! Potted—the leafy Atwater Village/Los Feliz shop dedicated to the art of outdoor living since 2004—is expanding to Santa Monica. The second location will be at the Lazybones shop on Main Street. Not in the area? Potted also has a bustling online store, where you’ll find its famed circle pots among many other chic, cheerful planters, furniture and gifts.

Potted’s original location is an Eastside pocket of serenity that reflects the vibrant point of view of its owners, Mary Gray and Annette Goliti Gutierrez, who have backgrounds in set design, art direction and garden/home renovation. We can’t wait to see how they translate their vibe along the coast!

More than a shop, Potted is a neighborhood haunt—with workshops, events and a welcoming, knowledgeable staff.

I recently spent an afternoon with Potted co-owner Annette Goliti Gutierrez and Warren Keller of @warrensgarden fame.

The Santa Monica grand opening is happening Memorial Day weekend, Saturday May 28 through Monday May 30, from 10 am to 6 pm all three days. We’ll be doing our demo on Saturday at 3 pm. There will be colorful pottery. There will be power tools. Special guest/our close garden friend Warren Keller will be joining us, planting some enchanting succulents in the pots and demonstrating how to arrange and care for them.

The event is going to be three days of fun and inspiration for garden and design lovers, with tarot readings, native plant and farm box discussions and demos, and free air plants given away to the first 50 people every day. In the giveaway department, Ryan and I have our eye on a dreamy Fermob chair up for grabs.

We’d love to see you there!
