I adored my visit to Dallas ....
I saw sooooo much fabulous art & incredible design ....
I went into a spin!!!
 
I flipped over everything in this house ...
it's owner is an over-the-moon 
"accessorator supreme"!!!
 
But, I can't get this sublime dinning room 
out of my mind!!! 
These fabulous vintage textiles 
pieced into these sublime "table-mats" 
are brilliant!!!
 
I imagined all the textiles in my closet .... 
incredible African cloth remnants, 
fantastic ikat fabrics,
& the vintage quilt pieces sitting 
on the top shelf!!!
WOW .... I'm off to the seamstress now!!!
 
And the chairs are spectacular too!!!!

Retuning from NYC's fashion world to 
LA's design world....
Los Angeles native Scotti Sitz 
opened GARDE at 7418 Beverly Boulevard
last March!!!

Influenced by her time at 
Calvin Klein & Giorgio Armani
Sitz's aesthetic is "clean & modern"!!!

She infuses the store with a primarily neutral color palette,
from taupe & stone to grey & greige ..... 
plus a selection of dark indigo solids, 
stripes & patterns.
Buying only what she "loves" .......
this store raises the bar for 
"chic & contemporary style" in LA!!! 


A fabulous "accessorator" find in LA last month .....
& a real LA "must-shop"!!!!
