I just returned from a trip to California and was fortunate enough to visit some of Los Angeles' finest design shops. Seriously- I write about them so often that I had to see them firsthand. My biggest challenge was that there are just too many fabulous shops to visit in three days time. Still, I managed to see quite a few and thought I would share some photos with you this week.
One store that has generated buzz as of late is Peter Dunham's Hollywood At Home. The jewel box of a store, located behind Nathan Turner's fabulous shop, not only carries Dunham's eponymous line of fabrics but Carolina Irving's textile line as well. Quite truthfully, these two fabric lines are a match made in heaven. Additionally, the shop sells vintage design books, furniture, home fragrance, and accessories. I think what I like most about this shop, though, is that in a way you feel like you've walked into a witty and stylish salon where inspiration abounds. How could you not be charmed by a stairwell in which you can walk on a red carpet replete a velvet rope banister and Dunham's star print wallpaper? Get it? It's your very own red carpet moment!
