Making my way to California...

 As happy as I am about this gorgeous springtime weather,
it is with great pleasure that I head out west to Los Angeles for Legends! The design quarter in LA has an annual extravaganza with parties, unveilings, panels and the like. Each year they have special guest designers create themed store window displays and they are some of the best I have ever seen. I am so excited to take a peek at whats in store this year, but most of all, returning to my lovely city of angels will be the best part.
Oh, how I miss warm weather, sunny skies, outdoor meals, large modern homes, all white decor and fresh + healthy food. Everything I love, goes on in this city...and the home decor is always right up my alley.

Back to LA: The Decorista takes West Hollywood West Week

Flying the friendly skies back to Los Angeles today for the fabulous festivities that are West Week. Where the best of the best in design get together and have an excuse to network, learn and play! 
If you are in LA, you must attend all of these amazing events. It's ridiculously fun....
The Avenues also puts on a massively amazing "day for the trade" and I am lucky enough to be speaking on a panel of amazing LA bloggers. Check it out.

Tablescape Tuesday: pretty pops of yellow

Nothing says spring like a bright and sunny pop of yellow in your tabletop decor. Come to think of it, nothing says spring like dining al favorite. I'm heading back to LA this week to hit up west week (all sorts of fun design festivities happening) and all I can think about is an outdoor baby shower that I am going to attend. I'm on the decor committee, of course, and right now all signs are pointing me to a teeny pop of yellow.
