The annual DIEM event kicked off last week with an opening night party at the Phyllis Morris showroom in West Hollywood. It was great to see design friends in anticipation of the next day’s symposium events.

On a recent visit to Chicago, I had the opportunity to meet up with my fellow Material Girl’s blogger Julia at her showroom and design studio. While Julia and I have met up on several occasions (both in LA and at High Point Markets) I had yet to visit her in her base city. Along with our friend Lisa Mende, we spent a morning checking out the fab Buckingham ID showroom followed by brunch at SoHo House in Chicago – and had a great time all of us together!

Color Love: Julia loves orange and I love how this piece creates quite the statement in her showroom, against the backdrop of the white painted brick walls.

Accesorized shelving and shaggy colorful stools define Julia’s Modernique style.

Showroom displays include table settings and fun industrial chic stools.

A crazy fun skeletal chair! (And Julia has a cute story about how when the store alarm was once set off, the police dispatched ended up wanting pictures in the chair, that of course, after all was checked out and in the clear!)

Lots of events took place in LA this past week and I am here to share! Along with showroom parties and openings, I had the opportunity to takeover the West Hollywood Design District’s Instagram account for “A Day in the Life”. It was fun to take part and feature some of my favorite places around town. For a full recap of photos, you can view here.

The Instagram takeover began with my day of coffee and iPad…

Which catered to a very packed crowd: Celebs, design friends, and pretty much all of West Hollywood was there!

The next evening I attended a much more intimate party. This one at Woven Accents for the “Spark The Imagination” installation invited by my friend Ginna of 27Ground. (Pictured above with Shirley of Shivhon Rugs.)

It’s hard to believe that Fall is upon us (at least in Los Angeles, where it still feels like summer!) but Fall Market is taking place this week at the Pacific Design Center. Looking forward to attending events and seeing fellow interior designers and bloggers. If you plan to attend, here are the deets.
