Hanging out in Hermosa beach these days made me think that this week’s #greatpeople post should be about two absolute kick-ass ladies I got to spent an unforgettable night with at a local spot in this little beach town.
Just in case you ever happen to be in Hermosa Beach check out ABIGAILE. They serve inspiring local-grown food, have great in- and outdoor seating and are just an amazing mixture between a brewery, casual restaurant, sports bar and just a nice local gathering place. That’s where we got to enjoy a great dinner back then.
Besides that it was also the pre-opening night of another great local spot called HOOK & PLOW when the three of us happened to be in town and since Katie knew the owners we could kindly volunteer as the champagne testers that night. What else. We had a blast ( and a hang over the next day).
Great places, a lot of fun, amazing taste, goal getters and always up for a glass of bumbles. This is probably what describes Katie and Brit best.
Living life to the fullest already they decided to quit their jobs, put their thoughts together and founded RoseBean Events & Design.
Their backgrounds in business and interior design helped them a ton, but even more it is their passion for what they do combined with their hard working attitude and incredible love for details what makes them outstanding and ultimately pretty successful as a brand.
Having travelled the world and putting events up all over the place in the last 14 years I never came a across a company that does what RoseBean’s portfolio includes.
They are a mixture of interior designers, furniture rentals, merchandiser and prop stylists.
They curate spaces. Even you just order a seating arrangement for your ten people the cool design furniture will also be set-up including all kinds of accessories like books, flowers, light fixtures, pillows, throws or anything other prop fitting the style. Never to less and never too much – always just right and just beautiful.
One of the biggest compliments they get all the time is people asking them to stage their private homes since they love their corporate set-ups so much.
Although the company has grown a lot, moved warehouses and the team has been extremely busy since they started in 2011, Katie and Brit always stayed hands-on, super authentic, always honest and just so re-freshing real.
Meanwhile they also have become amazing mums. They kids are #bornandraisedrosebean as they use to say but nonetheless Katie and Brit couldn’t be more energetic, innovative and up to date on the latest and greatest. They got it all.
They are constantly adjusting, overthinking, re-eventing and increasing their services based on the requests they are getting. Being driven by creativity, intuition and fun they take on what they can imagine and realistically execute, always trying to keep a healthy work-life balance for themselves and their employees to make sure they never loose their power and inspiration to do what they love.
Due to their L.A. connections, the fact that they both worked and lived in NYC for a while as well as their love for traveling they are way more than a local Portland shop and are capable to set-up spaces all over the U.S.
Long story short no matter if it is your next leadership meeting, a retailer hospitality, a wedding, a big birthday, your store window or even your whole store, the office lobby or your living room that needs a little temporary upgrade or a major renovation – RoseBean is the definitely your solution and you won’t be disappointed at all.
Katie & Brit – I am honored to call your my friends and to have the chance to get to work with you from time to time. I’d like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for being amazing role models for women in biz in general, female entrepreneurs that use their women’s powers per excellence as well as the living example that everything is possible when you believe, work hard and just be you.
Keep it up, stay rad and I look forward to many more bubbles to share with you.
