Culver City

The trendy vibes of Culver City have been on my mind lately and I snapped some photos during my recent visit to the city. In this city, you’ll find a hub of hotspots, which have emerged in the recent years: Janessa Leone’s flagship, Tom Dixon, Magasin (where I scored a fabulous deal on a unisex Dries van Noten carry-all bag :]), Rabbit Ladders, Sweetgreen to name a few.

The Market, where you’ll find all your indie pantry staples, reminds me of the artisan food shops like Riverdel Cheese in Brooklyn.

My favorite book, Native Speaker, at Blue Bottle Coffee. The books were selected in partnership with One Grand, a curated online bookstore/concept where celebrated thinkers, writers, artists, and other creative minds share the ten books they would take to their metaphorical desert island.

Around Venice

I’ve been working on a small side project that involves gathering colorful inspiration from my daily life. I came across these wonderful paintings during one of my walks near Abbott-Kinney a few weekends ago.

The series of artworks were created by local students and sponsored by organizations/businesses in the area. My favorite was the dog painting (top photo). I’m excited to unveil my humble project next month. Stay tuned for more updates!
