So if you live in LA and you’re hunkering down this weekend while your LA global universe becomes your own home, or your brave enough to invite your very local besties over for a Carmageddon Weekend, read on.
Here are some quick and stylish updates for your backyard environs… It’s not too late to add a dash of color from some of our local, off-the-shelf boutiques and shops around town. Just make it home by 7pm. Simply add music, friends and beverages. Here’s some inspiration and below is a list of sources you can make it to this week… before the weekend begins. Remember 405 shutdown begins 7pm Friday!
Don’t have enough outdoor furniture, don’t be afraid to bring the indoors out. Take a great pair of chairs from the house like these beautiful inlaid Indian chairs out for a peak at the sun for the afternoon. Love the bright colored lanterns and cushions. The outdoor rug grounds the whole space and there’s plenty to choose from.
Perhaps Mod Lounge is more your speed… Lamp, rug and table with bright splashes of color bring the indoors out.
A lovely day bed comes out for a lounge with friends, mix of pillow and colors… If you have a day bed and a bunch of friends coming over, drag it out and see what type of lounging begins… Leave it out for the weekend…
1. Head over to American Maison Midi (right next door to American Rag) on La Brea for the best most colorful additions… From Cushions to glassware to the best table cloths, lanterns with just the right dash of spry inspiration every hostess needs. Worst case, they still have great olive oil and gourmet treats like fig balsamic vinegrette.
2. Don’t miss Crate and Barrel BH Sale for anything from extra outdoor cushions, furniture and serving pieces. Well priced basics and a splash of color. Great placemats.
3. Z Gallerie BH is a great colorful source, perfect for outdoor parties.
4. Anthropologie at the Grove has wonderful & fun housewares, great extras for parties…
Good luck and I can’t wait to see all the FB chatter throughout and following the big weekend, Angelenos.
