the la ceinega designer quarter here in los angeles, better known as legends of la ceinega, celebrated it’s 5th annual design event a few weeks ago. read all about the amazing event here.
the theme this year was time capsule- the past, present & future of design. the event is packed with parties, lunches, and panels. i was honored to be asked to be on a panel hosted by pamela jaccarino, the editor-in- chief of luxe magazine to discuss the topic of legendary designers and their influence on designers today.
each year the lcdqla picks designers to create displays in the windows of the lcdq members showrooms. i was thrilled to do a window for one of my favorite showrooms, mecox gardens. you can only imagine how many times i’ve had to describe my window, and each time all i say is,”i wanted to create something that was timeless and easy, that reflects my design aesthetic, nothing tricky, just pretty!”
if i must elaborate, i’d also add it is, “Blue, green and beautiful! A signal to spring, a hint to summer, LA indoor outdoor living at its best- a window full of my favorite things: hand painted wallpaper, sun-faded textiles, a Billy Baldwin Chair, hand-painted floors, signature blue and white ceramics, eclectic lighting, modern accents. Not only are these my favorite things, they’re also pretty things that transcend the past, present and future.”
the window will stay up throughout memorial day weekend. thank you to everyone involved, especially mecox gardens, jerry siefert and of course my amazing team. also, a special thank you to gracie studio, carolina irving textiles, jf chen, tod carson, and lucca antiques for all the beauty that filled the window!
