every year around this time designers and editors emerge onto los angles for the legends of la cienega design event which happens to be where our office is. it’s really fun and get’s bigger and bigger every year. i heard there are 8,000 attendees this year. there are lots of parties, lots of panels, book signings and more parties. i think i went to 5 events last night. 

the highlight of the week is seeing the line up of windows that are designed by designers form all over the country- here is this years list of designer windows here. there’s always a theme, this your it’s show “your true colors.”

i have participated in years past designing windows. thought it would be fun to go back in time and look at my 2014 window i did at hollyhock- called it “the orient express.”. it was and ode to my first love- blue and white!

for all of you here this year for legends. please stop by mecox garden at 3:00 pm tomorrow for my beautiful book signing. i hope you enjoy this years event, so far it’s turning out to be legendary.
