Legends 2013 at the La Cienega Design Quarter in Los Angeles, has wrapped up. The three day event set a record for attendance, with people coming from 21 states and 6 countries. Here are some highlights....

Our window at Therien Studio Workshops played homage to the "Time Capsule" theme.

An 18th century painted and parcel-gilt paneled room is the backdrop for a mixture of exquisite furniture and accessories spanning four centuries; the quintessential example of “Timeless Design.”  Each classic element is a testament to Yves Saint Laurent’s quote: “Fashions fade, style is eternal.”

Special thanks to Therien, Quatrain and Stark for supporting our window, along with items from Timothy Corrigan Antiques.

A fun fact about Therien, besides all of their beautiful antiques, is that the space was a former movie theatre. There is a wall in the back of the store filled with autographs by some of Hollywood's great old-time actors!

An intimate dinner party in honor of Michael Boodro was held at my home. The highlight was a game where dinner guests were asked questions about Michael. The winner was Stacey Bewkes of Quintessence blog. The prize was an autographed copy of Elle Decor :)
