we are flowering the studio of the uber talented textile designer rachel craven today! rachel is a really close gal pal of mine and so I was super excited to pay a visit to her new downtown studio and check out her latest works. 

all rachel’s linens are made by hand here in LA. i love her clean lines and attention to detail…like the metallic copper stitching or neon pops on flax fabric. i was inspired to make rachel a little something different, so i put together a wreath + garland of spring florals that could hang in her new space.

both rachel and i are big fans of monochromatic tones in pale shades of cream, white, and greens. this earthy and organic wreath was something i knew would match rachel’s studio space and linens perfectly.

doesn’t this make you want to have a craft day at rachel’s studio? and you can get the apron she is wearing right here!

apart from being a textile designer, rachel is also co-organizer of the echo park craft fair which is a collective of local artist who gather twice a year to sell their wares. this is really such an amazing event. this year it is going to be held may 11th + 12th (mother’s day weekend) in downtown los angeles. all the details are still being worked out…but save the date! i’ll be there with flowers for all the mothers and lovers out there! kristen

    Love the simplicity of the hanging flowers…I’ve always hung my flowers to dry, but hidden them away during the process. What a mistake!

    I love everything about this post. That lovely woman with the pretty, natural face and big red lips. The flowers…I hang flowers upside down on my wall all the time but why have I never thought to string them together like that? I love that idea. That loft, seriously? Those windows and the light is making me crazy.

    Really. Love.
