We’re Going to Molly Wood

On a recent visit to see my family in Newport Beach we set out on a girls’ shopping day— my mom, sisters and the cousins (all of the pigtail persuasion). Our favorite discovery of the day was this wonderful little garden and home boutique, Molly Wood Garden Design in Costa Mesa. Great name, right?

Molly is a talented landscape designer who has transformed this cottage space into a wonderfully, artfully styled shop. It’s always inspiring to see how talented, creative people merchandise and present their goods. Every turn found us delighted by another vignette of garden beauty. What struck me most was the mix of texture and mood to create beautiful, practical spaces— it keeps things interesting and fresh.

If you are in the Orange County area, you should really make a stop and if that is too far from home, you can check out Molly Wood’s magic online.

    Sounds like fun, Molly! Maybe we can ponder my Mom’s garden over a Mai Tai at the VI! ;)

    Looks fabulous! Next time I take my boy down to OC to surf, I will go and check it out! Thanks for the tip, Val!
