#BlogTourLA design bloggers at WestEdge Design Fair:
Geraldine Tan, Gudy Herder and Ronique Gibson
In honor of #TBT (Throw Back Thursday) I am reminiscing about my October visit to sunny Los Angeles with my design blogging friends from #BlogTourLA. One of the highlights of our Modenus sponsored trip was checking out the inaugural opening of the WestEdge Design Fair in Santa Monica. We also toured a wealth of West Coast design destinations including the studio and boutique of designer Kelly Wearstler, fab shops in the La Cienga Design Quarter, plus numerous art studios and design industry showrooms. There was a lot to love!
Below are my favorite snapshots from the trip that capture a dozen design trends that are currently in fashion:
