L.A. Shopping

There’s a lot to share about my week in LA (I met Oprah, oh yes I did) but first here’s some decor based pics from my trip- specifically a fantastic day I spent with a LA based reader, Dee who e-mailed me and offered to show me some great places for decor shopping in the area!  Not only is it so fun to meet interesting people from all over the country that read this little labor of love, but getting to see where THEY love to shop is the best way to find some gems.

We started with brunch at Cecconi’s in West Hollywood- I am OBSESSED with the decor in this place. It’s insane. From the striped marble floor, to the bar to the vintage brass faucet’s in the bathrooms (I forgot to take a pic). It is such a fabulous place!

We popped into Kishani Perera’s little boutique Rummage with great refurbished vintage pieces.

Gibson was SUCH a cool shop chock full of really interesting vintage accessories (the PERFECT place to shop for a bachelor pad!)

Nicky Kehoe was a super elegant yet rustic shop full of amazing tables, chairs, tabletop goods and especially RUGS. That runner made me weep- as did that gold framed navy settee.

One of the MOST magical places we went was called Rolling Greens– a nursery/floral shop/home decor store/ gift shop…. simply AMAZING. I absolutely loved it!

I walked into this room and wondered what was on the back wall- turns out it was ombre dyed tea bags strung up like a curtain! Dee actually hosted a bridal shower here which was a genius idea as you need absolutely NO decor! Check out images of it on her blog!

Our last stop was 45 Three Modern Vintage– a really well priced place to find amazing vintage stuff- some redone, some waiting for the right fabric! LOVED the navy and coral striped wall!

Thanks so much to Dee for a fun day and more to come tomorrow!


  1. Loving all the pictures – now I want to hop on board a plane to LA and see these fab stores myself. Loving the garden store! We have one similar here in Houston called Thompson+Hanson. It’s fab.
