A Little Jaunt To LA

IMG_1514

I got to escape the dismal, horrid New England weather for a few days last week and jet out to Los Angeles for a book signing event and panel discussion with Reagan Hayes furniture for Westweek.  And I had the pleasure staying at the LOVELY London West Hollywood for a couple nights while there.  I highly recommend it if you are traveling to the LA area.

Watching the west coat sunrise from my room. Sun and warmth is so foreign to me at this point. It was so nice.

The rooms are HUGE and perfectly appointed. So comfy.

And they have the biggest bathrooms ever. I loved it!

Especially the giant tub which I soaked in (and then recalled that California was having a drought and felt hella guilty.)

The best design was in the restaurant, Boxwood.  It was SO gorgeous.  From the beamed ceiling, distressed wood floors, brass accents and plush upholstery.

And this wall of chinoiserie wallpaper with brass library lights with a tufted banquette in front of it? yep, perfection!!!

A close up of the paper- adorable and perfect!

One of the private dining rooms- just love the ceiling and the light fixture.

The roofdeck pool is even gorgeous at night with great a view of Los Angeles.

The Reagan Hayes showroom is STUNNING. I’d happily move right in.

Loved this little vignette complete with an Amanda Talley painting and an awesome Reagan Hayes chair in Les Touches fabric.

And how about this one? That sofa in Kelly Wearstler’s Channels fabric is insanity, especially when paired with those chartreuse ottomans and more Amanda Talley work.

A selection of Reagan’s dining chairs around a table of her design.

My most favorite chair, obviously.

I was SO SO happy to meet my LA readers- so many were so adorable and wonderful to get to talk to. :)

The panel I spoke on includes fabulous designers Benjamin Vandiver, Betsy Burnham (an idol of mine) and Louise Youngson-Klasfeld from Viyet– pictured here with Reagan and Luke Hayes.

Oh, and Bobby Trendy came. YUP.

Remember him? Anna Nicole Smith’s crazy designer?

The week before I also got to have another book signing in Boston with California Closets.

I had such a blast working with them on my new closet (which is such a game changer).

I got to meet a lot of readers who couldn’t make it to the earlier signings, which was wonderful.

It was such a great night! :)

P.S. I’m totally obsessed with this tux jacket.
