In this new video, I take you to Pigment, a sophisticated urban gift-and-décor boutique. Pigment's simple-but-sophisticated pots frame succulents perfectly. Colors range from intense hues to white, cream and pastels.
There are three Pigment stores in San Diego: North Park, Point Loma, and Del Mar. (No disclaimer needed: I'm not being paid to promote Pigment.)
The shop began in 2007. Owner Amy Paul is an artist and college professor specializing in color theory. And color is what Pigment is all about.
Many customers are young professionals living in apartments and condos with no space for gardening. Succulents are often their pets, and they want containers that add color and personality to interiors, and that frame plants perfectly.
Each store offers a plant-your-own potting bar and design assistance. There’s also an outdoor sitting area with assorted small succulents for sale.

When I did an article for Better Homes & Gardens about Pigment’s hanging succulent globes, I also made an impromptu succulent terrarium video that shows their method.
Here's the how-to-make-a-terrarium video:
Pigment as Destination
Pigment is a destination for people walking their dogs, parents pushing strollers, mom-daughter shopping excursions, and girlfriend meet-ups.
You never know what you’ll see. The displays and merchandise change like a shifting kaleidoscope.
