Throw Back to Legends

It's already been a week since Legends and I still can't stop thinking about it. The panels were informative, the windows were inspiring, and the parties were full of excitement. I could not be more thankful for my friend's and colleague's hard work that went into making this year's event truly "one of a kind".

One Of A Kind Windows

This year's Legends event has been a whirlwind of excitement and non-stop entertainment. An iconic statement of the event are the window designs, this years are better than ever. The theme for this year is "One of a Kind", and our windows could not have turned out better, thanks to Robert Stilin, and Nate Berkus.

Robert uses contemporary art to complement the antique furniture. A perfect reading corner for a one of a kind art lover.

Nate utilizes antique furniture from France, Spain, and Italy to set an intimate scene of as if one was looking though a door into someone's well curated home.

Make sure to see all the windows during Legends by visiting lcdqla.com and vote for your favorite design.

Hollywood Charm

Our dear client Schuyler Samperton helps her friend put all the right pieces together in a Spanish hollywood charmer. We are grateful to see a few of our antiques spread about the house, highlighting the original character of the property. 

"Samperton helped Harris remodel the house gradually, beginning with the kitchen and bathrooms, after Harris bought the rental property in 2000, installing stunning saffron-colored drapes in the dining room, and intuiting her friend’s changing needs. As Harris’ life has shifted over the last two decades, from being a top model for Giorgio Armani to acting to graduate school and now to her career as a practicing therapist, the space has also transitioned from a single woman’s (occasional) party house to a family home."

Even in a contemporary space, one can always make room for a traditional desk. This 19th century English writing-table for example,is a great way to add traditional character in a contemporary environment.
