Holy moly, where has the time gone? I’ll admit I’m a bit ashamed of how long it’s been since my last post. But that’s ok, because it is a new year and there’s lots to look forward to this year! I have a better handle on my school/work/life schedules and I’m ready to start fresh. A new year, a new routine. So keep your eye out for new posts once a week on Thursdays. And I’ll try to periodically post some “This Week I Loved” entries. Some forthcoming topics to look forward to:
All sorts of goodies from the Las Vegas Market.
My favorite shop for eye candy, in SoHo.
Flea market fun (and finally a post about the flea market on Melrose and Fairfax, a local favorite).
So, happy New Year to my faithful readers, and welcome back to anecdotes on design, travel, and life in Los Angeles that I hope will delight your senses.
A bratwurst lunch in downtown LA. This home-cooked meal with bacon-wrapped pork. Street art filling in an otherwise missing concrete brick. This Rauschenberg… …and this Frank Lloyd Wright furniture at the Huntington. The mountain view from my desk and my new job with an interior design firm in Pasadena. Woo hoo! My funny cat sleeping.And this. (I heart Stephen Colbert.)
This delicious summer snack. Drinks with friends at The Griffin, or as we fondly like to call it, the Gryffindor Common Room. Remembering these old men from Uchisar. Finishing my Color Theory midterm project. My work in prgress, modeling Mies van de Rohe’s Barcelona Pavilion for a class.
Also, I have recently gotten hooked on Sons of Anarchy, and this totally made my day!
Reliving our visit to the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul. A new bedside reading nook for my husband. (PS. This is an awesome, low budget, small space solution for a bedside table!) Dinner and drinks with the girls at The York on York in Highland Park. A delicious blueberry pie and dinner with friends. A visit with my ASID chapter to the Sirtaj boutique hotel in Beverly Hills.The chandelier tree in Silverlake. (Yes, literally a tree full of chandeliers!) This monster zucchini from our garden!
