Big Red Sun has officially opened their Venice location on Rose. We had been eying their progress for a while: installing flying saucer planters, check. Painting the building bright blue, check. Painting the house next door bright green, check. Covering the front yard with flowering squash vines, check. This weekend we finally got a peek inside the rest of the place: part succulent friendly nursery, part retail shop (with incredible vintage finds), part modern landscape design firm; all charm:
Adrienne covered their incredible Austin Location earlier this summer and we lamented that we didn't have a place like that in LA. Well now we do. Taking up two houses on the corner of Rose and 6th in Venice, they've turned them into a retail shop, an office and a nursery out back. The shop is a mixture of succulent arrangements, modern vessels for plants, organic candles, vintage furniture, lighting fixtures and great gardening books. In addition to all this, Big Red Sun also offers gardening and landscaping services, makes custom arrangements for weddings and events and builds custom pools and ponds.
