Pillow Talk

Berkeley designer Sabine Herrmann has created a unique collection of pillows 
inspired by the diverse succulents found throughout the Bay Area. Hermann 
photographs the plants and prints the images on fabric, which she then sews into the hyperrealistic-looking finished products. Pillows are also available in the shape of sand dollars, pine cones, logs, and leaves. $69–$79.


Artful Blooms

Chive’s decorative ceramic flowers, corals, and succulents are striking objets d’art that can be mixed with live plants in a terrarium or beautifully displayed on their own. Available at Whim House, in Danville. Prices vary; the coral dahlia pictured here sells for $34.


Top Drawers

The three-drawer Lexi dresser from Made Goods features an appealing 
update of a classic vine scroll pattern. Made of camel bone hand-set in gray or white resin, the dresser is available through Indigo and Poppy, in Lafayette. $5,800.


Floral Coasters

Add a bit of understated elegance to your next cocktail party (even if it’s a virtual gathering on Zoom) with these white-washed concrete coasters. Featuring sculpted floral crest surfaces, the coasters are available at Lavender Moon Interiors, in Martinez. $13 for a set of four. lavendermoon


Gorgeous Walls

Wallpaper has made a major comeback in recent years, thanks to enterprising designers who’ve created fresh options for wall coverings, such as this manually silk-screened fern pattern by Berkeley-based Erica Tanov. Available in a choice of colors. $210–$235 per roll.


Sitting Pretty

Elsie Green, an exquisitely curated home furnishings store in Concord, offers a selection of vintage French chairs reupholstered in hand-printed cotton fabrics. The chairs come in a range of patterns, but we’re drawn to the botanical prints, such as the one shown here on a crapaud chair found in a Lyon flea market. $1,495.
