One of my favorite spots in our downtown Los Angeles pied à terre is the rooftop lounge. While I much prefer the slower paced lifestyle my San Luis Obispo digs provide, its fun every now and then to be back in a big city with the hustle and bustle of lights. Especially in the city where my entire career started - I love seeing the transformation downtown LA has had over the years and feel fortunate to have projects that are bringing me back here this year. We've been able to entertain a few clients here in this cool rooftop space and were so happy to have our friends and photographers extroidonnaire Jodi & Kurt with Jodi Miller Photography visit recently. On the drive south from San Luis Obispo after our Biddle Ranch shoot (coming soon!!!), Emily and Jodi decided they wanted to leave me with a little holiday cheer hours before their flight out of LAX. Before we knew it, we were pulling over at Target and filling our carts with sparkly and colorful decorations for one more impromptu collaboration! Using the Compartes chocolate bar as our color palette inspiration, we pulled a few things I had on hand in the apartment, recycled blooms and plates and flatware from Dish Wish Events. The aftermath was a fun, #DTLA morning perfect for a California Christmas outdoors on the rooftop. So happy I could celebrate the season with my sister and friends a little early. Happy Holidays!
