All anyone needs to do is step outside and take a deep breath to know that springtime has finally arrived (and summer is just around the corner).  Here in Los Angeles that means there is a slight chill in the air that burns off with the morning clouds and moves into a sunny and mild afternoon before the evening clouds roll in.  Purple Jacaranda trees line the freeways and orange and yellow poppies are in bloom.

Design professionals know how to capture the feeling of spring year-round through the use of beautiful fabrics, artwork and custom details that include bespoke hardware.  Here at Martin Pierce Hardware we  also celebrate this season with custom hardware collections that will add a permanent touch of spring to your next hospitality or residential project. Birds and bees and butterflies can be found in our Animal collection while a garden full of floral designs are featured in the Flora collection.

If you are looking for some design inspiration or just desiring an afternoon surrounded by beautiful flowers there are many spots in the Los Angeles area:

  • The Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens.  We have posted about this amazing site many times on this blog and it is definitely worth the drive.
  • The Getty Center offers more than a world-famous collection of art.  Their gardens and walkways are a work of art themselves and offer you a respite from the long days spent in the museum.
  • If tropical and unusual plants are more to your liking then be sure and check out the Mildred E. Mathias Botanical Gardens located on the UCLA campus.
