Legends of La Cienega :: recap

Designed By: James Swan In Tribute To: Banksy

La Cienega, is the main artery of the Los Angeles interior design 'hood and home to a growing number of designer owned, eponymous boutiques. As if that were not enough of a draw, once a year it's host to 'Legends of La Cienega' - a 3 day event including, panel discussions, show room open houses  and a walking tour of windows designed by celebrated designers. a few photos of the windows preceded by a few of their Style Sheets :

I was so honored to be asked by Waterworks to join two other California designers, Charles de Lisle and Erin Valencich on their panel, 'Sex Up Your Space' ( I know, I sort of exhaled and went for it ),  moderated by the very witty and charming, Erin Feher of California Home + Design. And then afterward, headed over to Rose Tarlow Melrose House to see Brooke Gianetti of Velvet and Linen on the panel, 'Raising the Bar' a great discussion.
