Our Spring collaboration with Karl The Store in Sausalito was a big undertaking for Wildwood.
The opportunity to design indoor and outdoor spaces with a midcentury modern flair was a huge draw. Moving from the wide open vistas in Sonoma to a small store footprint was an exercise in curating a plant palette. We brought the Wildwood philosophy to Sausalito – showcasing rare and unusual plants that love California.
People responded. We heard “this reminds me of LA” and “you should open in France” more than once! Everyone loved the bonsai collection. Look for us on the Champs-Elysees next year;)
We left with so many insights. The warmer climate expanded possibilities for plant combinations. Table top displays are great conversation starters with beginning gardeners. Pedestrians appreciate the detail in sidewalk curb appeal versus our ‘loud’ display for drivers at highway speeds on Route 12.
Keep pushing your gardening boundaries in 2020!
