Noted Antiquarian, Lee Stanton


Lee Stanton is one of Los Angeles' leading arbiters of style and the premier purveyor of fine period antiques to prominent interior decorators and discriminating clients nationwide. For years, his San Juan Capistrano warehouse was a go-to for those in the know on the look out for 17th-19th century antiques. Early morning lines would form hours before doors opened, as news of fresh crates from Europe, spread through out the city.
Knowing that so many of his clients traveled from the Los Angeles area, Stanton, decided to open doors along the prominent, La Cienega design corridor. Stanton's lovely and down to earth demeanor coupled with his generosity to share his vast knowledge, will have you immediately understand why he is held in such high regard.
Stanton was gracious enough to sit with us and chat about antiques, design, his own history and the up coming Legends of La Cienega design event- of which he is one of the founders. {for more information please see their website: Legends of La Cienega }

Chatting with Scot Meacham Wood



Many of you know of Interior Designer Scot Wood as Tartanscot from his well known and beautifully executed blog of the same name; others know him for his elegant eye for design and love of all things Tartan.
This week we sit down with Scot to learn a little more about the Southern Gentleman behind the design, what inspires him, his approach, his theory and were even treated to an, a Capella serenade (which will make you melt- is it time to have a design blogger stage show? Soundtrack? )
Scot's diminutive San Francisco apartment, transformed into a space large in elegance and design.
The beautiful Hampton's home Scot worked on, via San Francisco and with only a few days, on site, to install.

April Food Day 2010




Today is the 2nd annual April Food Day spearheaded by fellow bloggers Meg Fairfax Fielding of Pigtown*Design and Chris Cox of Easy and Elegant Life.

It's time to "pay it forward".

April Food Day is our annual reminder to help out and asks that we all make a donation, no matter how small, to Feeding America. They are annually feeding 37 MILLION Americans, including 14 million children. This represents a 46% increase over 2006.  There is need, no question.

This year, in order to track the success of the April Food Day initiative, there is a special donation page that has been set up.

Thanks to Meg and Chris for making this great event happen. If you have any questions, you can email Meg here or Chris here.

Thank you.
