Penthouse Please

Living in Los Angeles, there are so many options when it comes to eating and drinking and it's easy to miss a gem. I had drinks last night at the Penthouse at the Huntley Hotel in Santa Monica, and it was fabulous. Panoramic views of Los Angeles, great atmosphere, great bartender, and even better cocktail. I admit I'm not a fan of the name, but after the first sip, you won't care what it's called.

The Celery Filthy Sexy**
2 parts Herradura Silver Tequila 
3 parts fresh celery juice
2 parts fresh squeezed lime
splash of Cointreau
1 slice of a Serrano chili
salted rim

**Not the official recipe, but my best interpretation based on the description.....enjoy!


It's a Privileged Life

Are you a Rose?

Or a Sage?

I was ECSTATIC to here from Rachel Kamerman, the production designer of Privileged!! She kindly shared some details about Rose and Sage's glamorous bedroom

The bed is custom-made through Grace Home Furnishings in Brentwood. The fabric used for the bedding is Poppea by Silk Trading Company and is $195 a yard. She chose the chocolate/turquoise for Rose and the pink/chartreuse for Sage. You can order the fabric here.

The Domino Effect

It's been 24 hours since I found out that Domino is done. Like all of you, I was very sad and disappointed. First H&G, then Blueprint, In Style Home, O at Home, Cottage Living (that one really hurt) and now DOMINO!!??? So, for me, it's down to Arch Digest, Western Interiors, House Beautiful and Elle Decor. Those are all beautiful magazines, but in my opinion, they target a slightly older audience. I spent some time scrambling to organize all of my favorite Domino images, so I thought I'd post them here in one spot. At least they will always be available to you here......Oh and I even tried to order back issues, and they are sold out!!!!! 


Adios Amigos!!!!

I love Cabo. Just LOVE. I can't wait to hop on that plane Friday with my favorite person in the  world (a.k.a. my hubby) and spend a week chillaxing!!


J'adore Decor's fabulous living room.......

I know we all take "blogger" breaks and get busy with life, but I was so surprised to click on "J'adore Decor" and see that the blog has been removed! Sniff, sniff....


It's Trina's Time!!!

Props to Trina Turk's PR team, because she is mentioned in Domino TWICE this month! Trina Turk is not only known for her fabulous clothes, but for her glamorous stores! She hired Kelly Wearstler to design her clothing boutiques and they are serious eye candy........

Above are shots of her Los Angeles boutique; below are from the Palm Springs location... 

Well now Trina and Kelly have one more thing in common.....a collaboration with Schumacher!! Domino announced in their new February issue that Turk designed a new line of outdoor fabrics. The "Arches Print" in Bamboo is my favorite (that would be the yellow one in the middle, this scan is horrible, sorry!!!).

And the next time you are in the desert, you must check out Trina Turk Residential on Palm Canyon. The store carries items made with her signature prints, plus loads of others (like Missoni Home!!). I always make a trip to her shops when I'm out there (after hitting up J. Crew Resort of course!). 

Loving these lucite armchairs.....FYI!!
