La Brea Finds

My past shopping trips to Los Angeles have mainly focused on La Cienga's antique stores.  This week I ventured to La Brea where many of the design stores have relocated due to the more affordable rent.  While I still feel La Cienga overall has better quality pieces, I was able to find a few good stores with some nice pieces pictured below.


In the months ahead, we'll be breaking out our Coppertone, but when we are talking about metals, Cu is my new favorite metallic- the sophisticated pink!! It's stylish, warm and feminine. First inspired by Gabriel Scott's Harlow chandelier, I am now obsessed with everything copper and it's cousin, rose gold. I  am even contemplating dying my hair a pinkish copper. Look at all the beautiful things to be had in this hue.

The Best of Tines

In the last few years gold flatware has come into vogue replacing what used to be everyday stainless steel. Matt gold and the newer sister version, matt black, is casual enough for everyday while dressy enough for special dinner parties. If you want to invest in a formal set, Puiforcat and Georg Jensen forge timeless beauties; however, if you want more affordable options West Elm and Crate & Barrel offer an array of stylish ware. Whether you are in the process of registering or just want to spruce up your table with a new set of flatware, you can't go wrong with any of the below.
