jewelry maker and artist katherine bentley has been creating stunning pieces of work for years. lucky for us in the spring of 2012 bentley opened the brick and mortar dream collective in silver lake. the storefront houses all sorts of beautifully crafted wares from local artists.

i especially love her jewelry line, dream collective, which was the namesake for the shop. the modern-pop-rustic feel of the space is emphasised by such decor details like a hand painted area rug and brightly colored geometric stained glass windows. and i have my heart set on this evil eye ring & that pink one you can buy here.

the sweet ladies of dream collective welcomed us into the store and studio space to be inspired and create our second floral arrangement post! (see the first one here)

kristen sourced florals that she felt expressed kathryn’s aesthetic, which is rooted in geometric indigenous shapes, natural textures, and in the bright yet sunbleached tones of her jewelry.

wild variegated geranium and california poppies were a MUST when thinking about where to start florally. she kept it wild yet thoughtfully arranged and added delphinium to the floral palette hoping the subtle blues would allow the poppies to…well…pop.

how cool is that dressing room? and it’s no surprise i was drawn to that dotted pillow…

those windows make me fall in love with stained glass all over again…

katherine and lizzie (the store manager) were such a blast to work with. you should definitely stop by their shop if you get the chance!

    SO pretty. That arrangement is seriously stunning.

    What a beautiful flower arrangement. I love the colors and how it looks rather wild, but is still tailored (or, as you say, “thoughtfully arranged”). I realized as soon as i saw the photos that I stopped by this shop when I was in LA over the summer. I was drawn to the jewelry in particular. I wish I’d had more time to browse.

    What a lovely arrangement for such a neat space. So many treasures there.

    I just discovered that store after getting my hair cut at Hive! It’s in such a cute block of stores. The flowers here are so lush and wildflower-field like. I love them.

  • 6. Anni  |  January 7th, 2013 at 11:44 am

    These are stunning… I love how much florals really make a space happy and homey.

  • 7. lydia {ever ours}  |  January 7th, 2013 at 11:49 am

    that polka dot pillow is a must have! such a cute store!

  • 8. Jackie  |  January 7th, 2013 at 12:14 pm

    Such a thoughtful collaboration between nature and objects with your post! Katherine also creates custom high(er) end jewels – both she and her work are beautiful, and she was amazing to work with in creating my engagement ring – such an easy and trusting process with her in an often overwhelming time!

  • 9. Kenzie Lee  |  January 7th, 2013 at 1:50 pm

    It’s amazing what a small floral arrangement can do for a space. It brings life and color into an otherwise simple space!

  • 11. Sarah  |  January 7th, 2013 at 3:51 pm

    What a beautiful store front. Bri, I’m planning a trip to California (Road trip from LA to Humboldt National Park – many stops!) It would be great to see a list of all the fantastic stores like this in the LA area? Maybe even a city guide? I would love your take on it. So basically, please be my best friend and tell me where all the good stores are? kthanxbye.

    I love your boots bri. Where are they from?

  • 13. Dana  |  January 7th, 2013 at 4:24 pm

    so gorgeous. can you find out where the white blousey business we see a slight peek of is from? I am smitten with the combo of high waisted 90s blue jeans and the volume of the shirt! such goodness.

  • 14. Bitty  |  January 7th, 2013 at 4:24 pm

    wow! What an absolutely beautiful and inspiring place. I think I would love to work there! Thanks for sharing :)

  • 15. Michelle  |  January 7th, 2013 at 5:17 pm

    The jewelry is really timeless. Like you are opening your Mom’s jewelry box from the 70s, but with a modern twist. Great post to start the week. Enjoy today!

  • 17. Michaela  |  January 7th, 2013 at 6:00 pm

    those florals are perfect! I usually go for more of an all white sleek arrangement but this prairie style is bright and beautiful for a dreary month like january!

    Just wanted to let you know how this has quickly become MY FAVORITE column of yours! The arrangements are totally inspired, and I love ogling the creative spaces they inhabit. And PS I love your red jacket top thing. :)

  • 22. Houston Trim Carpenter  |  January 20th, 2013 at 5:23 am

    Your blog is about everything pretty and pleasing. The flowers are arranged beautifully without a touch being too showy. Looking at it feels like home. Does this shop cater to women alone?
