legends of la cienega

Finally have a moment to breathe in after the intense weekend with all the design fabulousness here in LA. Legends of La Cienega is a 2nd annual two-day gala of interior design in the heart of West Hollywood sponsored by Elle Decor, featuring lots of board discussions, book signings, cocktail parties and what not. But the real show stopper is  the window displays of all the showrooms on La Cienega which are decorated by interior and set designers to channel a certain theme/idea. This year inspiration is Hollywood movies. Jill from Material Girls did such a great job capturing all of those, so I won’t be redundant and post a few pics of my own of the discussions I had a pleasure to attend.

East Meets West Panel: Pamela Jaccarino, Editor in Chief, Luxe Interiors + Design; Virgil McDowell,architect;  Mary MacDonald, interior designer; Joe Nye,  interior designer; Lisa Fine and Carolina Irving of Irving & Fine.

Design Diaries Panel: Alexandria Abramian-Mott, Editor in Chief, Angeleno Interiors; Gregory Han, Apartment Therapy LA; Cassandra Lavalle, Coco+Kelly; Joy Cho, Oh Joy!; Janet Hall, Remodelista.

Setting the Mood with hilarious Robert Verdi

Most of the discussions looked like this for me as I was constantly late to grab a front spot since I couldn’t stop browsing through amazing showrooms.

Vintage Lineage Panel: Margaret Russell, Editor in Chief, Elle Decor; Chris Barrett, interior designer; Catherine Malandrino, fashion designer; Cameron Silver, founder of Decades. <images via me>

    I see that the my formatting on your “transmission engine” caused the deletion of two words. I repeat my post: It was: You write: “The Bolshoi Theater. After the remodel, it looks simply stunning. Quite an experience of it’s own.” Your “generation” never learned to spell? Or is it the grammar you lack? You don’t know the difference between “its” and “it’s?” Or you simply don’t care? Как жаль. Может быть, это позор?

    […] seems like the aftermath of the Legends of La Cienega will feed my blog posts for quite a while now. But with my weakness for all sorts of wallcoverings, […]
