One of the things I have noticed about LA is the omnipresence of succulents, hanging plants, and cacti. I even received an arrangement from my company when I showed up for my first week of work. They seem to be a key ingredient of interior design and landscaping here in this dry city.
It certainly helps that sage green is one of my favorite colors. I am currently considering a succulent bouquet for the wedding, and as little place setting party favors. I also love the organic, cheerful and elegant look they bring to my room as little accents to help transition my kitchen space to the living room.
