Gone Fishin’ in Los Angeles

June 27, 2011 by

My dad’s patio, where I had breakfast this morning listening to the birds and a little traffic.

I’ve gone fishin’…not for fish, but for ideas. I’m here in Los Angeles, where I attended Dwell on Design, tasted lasagne cupcakes from Heirloom, a food truck where we had to have our car valet parked–only in LA, and a first for me. I experienced some new designer furniture and accessories at The Design Truck, a mobile design gallery that parks curbside with a different food truck at each stop. The traveling shop is the creation of designer duo Brendan Ravenhill and Chris Adamick, who are to furniture design what gourmet food trucks are to street dining.

Today I am off to the Brentwood Country Mart to sample the food at FarmShop and enjoy the gorgeous weather until my flight lifts off tomorrow for New York. Stay tuned for what I am bringing back for you from the Left Coast…
