lavender blue

a creative home

studio & boutique


Located in a lovely little coastal town in Southern California, Rob and Mary Livingston, owners of Lavender Blue have been building, rebuilding and painting furniture since the early 1980's. They have always loved taking something old, that has been discarded, and making it wonderful again. Mary designs, decoratively paints, distress' and repurposes many items of old. Rob builds, recreates and fits everything together beautifully. They are a great team.


In 1997, they launched their first store, Lavender Blue in Ventura, California. A place where they could showcase their work and Mary was able to finally have a retail workshop of her own, and a place to teach classes in. Mary has been teaching classes since 1984 and is also a visual designer. Many people have taken her classes over the  years and continue to follow her and take her classes. Customers love to come in and see what is new and inspiring.

WE now have relocated to our HOME STUDIO
