Last weekend I got to attend a summer evening wine and jazz event hosted by the Los Angeles Jazz Society. The event took place at a private home with a resort like backyard of lush landscaping. There was poolside live music and nine California wineries participated in providing tastings. My friend Allan and I enjoyed an evening of food, wine tasting, and live music.

A friend of mine was recently interested in upgrading his pendant lighting in his rental, a dining room area that needed better quality of lighting. He was intrigued with the idea of a drum shade pendant. Thanks to my friends at Lamps Plus, they were able to help out with just the right fixture.

image

Given a few options, he chose the Possini Euro Drum Pendant in white. The 20″ diameter size was perfect for his round dining table and the white shade provides added clear white lighting that the space needs.

image

The same fixture also comes in a bronze color.

image

 

The best part? The pendant was an easy DIY install that he was able to change out and install without an electrician. A little modifying of the cord length and it works perfect for his space!

Thank you to Lamps Plus!

The Fifth Annual Los Angeles Food & Wine Festival returns next month, August 27-30, for a back to back three days of jam packed events city wide. I attended last year and it was the epitome of finest chefs and wine tastings one can ever experience. I had the opportunity to experience some great food tastings from rooftop at the L’Ermitage in Beverly Hills to an outdoor evening event under the skyline of downtown LA. It’s a not to be missed weekend of fun, food, music!

image

The Walt Disney Concert Hall made for a stunning backdrop for the downtown LA events that took place right on Grand Street!

image

Absolute highlight of the three day festival was the Lexus Live on Grand tasting event.

Beautiful summer night under the downtown LA skyline with live music, food, and wine.

Dwell on Design returned to Los Angeles this year for another round of great design events and exhibitions, seems like it gets better and better every year! This year I explored the show to see both new finds and old finds, but always interesting new showcases. From ideas on landscaping to space-maximizing bathroom ideas from Geberit, here are some of my highlights from this year’s #DOD2015.

image

Love the colorful and graphic fabrics available from The Shade Store.

image

A highlight, and absolute favorite, the faucets and fittings from Franz Viegener – beautiful minimal streamlined design!

image

More from the Buenos Aires based company, Franz Viegener.

image

Beautiful hardware from Franz Viegener too.

image

For a second year in a row, I’ve had the opportunity to team up with Geberit. I’ve since come to know their products and have seem many installed in both commercial and residential use that look amazing. Pictured above, is the Geberit Monolith and Sigma50 Flush Plate. Both save space, operate quietly and conserve water. For more, visit them on Houzz and Pinterest.

image

Another show favorite, the beautiful cabinetry from Bauformat.

image

Cabinet colors come in an array of colors and finishes, from Bauformat.

image

Fun tile selections from Bedrosians.

image

A fun section featured at Dwell on Design was the Outdoor area filled with great ideas and sources for landscaping.

image

StepStone, Inc had these cool hexagon concrete pavers.

image

Loved seeing the modular home designs as were on display, just like the ones on display last year. This year’s were even more uniquely designed from an interiors standpoint.

image

Lacava has the classiest vanities.

 

image

Fun, colorful chairs from Bend Goods!

Looking forward to next year’s Dwell on Design – the show that keeps getting bigger & better! Thank you to Geberit for inviting me to provide show coverage!

This year we welcomed the 7th annual Legends of La Cienega to the La Cienega Design Quarter with a host of events and parties.

If there’s anything I like most about the annual Legends of La Cienenga, well let’s just say it’s the socializing and parties! It’s a chance to see many friends and it’s by far become the who’s who of the design world. This year brought bloggers and designers alike from around the globe. While the traditional kick off gala event typically begins mid-week, this year got a head start with events hosted by CA Home and Design and Viyet a day early.

The next evening came the biggest party of all: the gala event hosted by 1st dibs to kick off the official start of Legends of La Cienega. This year’s packed party was held at STK Steakhouse.

And lastly, the one day early event came with a celebration for Cinco de Mayo at West Hollywood’s Tortilla Republic hosted by CA Home and Design magazine.

Looking forward once again to next year’s Legends of La Cienega!

I think I have a new favorite restaurant in town and that is A.O.C. LA! Just in the past week I’ve been there for two amazing dinner events! Last week, I had the pleasure of experiencing some amazing food pairings and wine from Ribera Rueda Wine, a savory wine from Spain.

image

The food pairings were a series of shared small plates by chef Suzanne Goin of A.O.C. that paired with each next wine selection created an even more flavorful taste sensation. Truly one of the best wine dinner events I’ve ever experienced.

I’ve been using Art.com as a source for specifying art for client projects and using on client concept boards to convey how art selections will fit into a room setting. I recently had the opportunity to experience a new app from Art.com: the SwitchArt app. A fun app that allows you to upload images (your pictures) to the app, select to be printed, & easily switch out with a magnetic backing for an ever changing art look.

 

“The SwitchArt app from Art.comSwitchArt is the simplest way to change out prints, often and easily, in the same frame. Watch a tutorial here to see how it works. The great thing about SwitchArt is if you want a new look, simply peel off the print and replace it with a new one in seconds. No hammer required. No need to buy a new frame.
The new Art.com SwitchArt App makes things even easier and allows you to bring your photo stream straight to your walls. Simply download the app, buy a pack, and begin uploading personal photos from their your camera roll, Instagram feed or Facebook page. Each pack includes a SwitchArt™ Magnetic Frame in the color and size of your choice, and a number of prints you select.”

Art.com’s line up of mobile apps for art selection and ordering.

  

  

One tool that is a great feature on Art.com is the ability to view different frames and mat features for art pieces. I use this for client project selections and screenshot the images for my concept boards. It’s such a great way to incorporate the right look into a room design – or helpful for the consumer trying to select the best frame option.
