now let's pull back a bit:
now, let's see everything, and give credit where credit is due:
|"verochio" gilt chandeliers, gray morell; vintage chrome chandelier, gray morell; custom screen manufacturer, grace home furnishings; custom wall covering applied to screen, black crow studios; custom chairs, gina berschneider furniture; pillows on chairs, raoul textiles for george smith; "marbella" gilt table (between chairs), gray morell, (on table- sculpted arm, gray morell, silver plate bowl, dragonette ltd); "milan" side table (right), dragonette ltd; beeline home by bunny williams "pug benches", harbinger LA; antique tree root table, quatrain; "pashimina" carpet, the rug company; and if it ain't listed, it came out of the maison21 atelier! i want to give a huge a HUGE heartfelt thanks to those who contributed to my vignette- couldn't have done it without all of their cooperation ("it takes a village to dress a window"); i can't believe how fortunate i was to have the support of black crow studios, gina berschneider furniture, and grace home furnishings who all made me things specifically for use in my window. i'll be talking more about these generous sponsors in future posts, but today? it's all about me!|

|there's that damn monkey again!|
last, i wanted the window to be a reflection of not only my personal decorating style, but a celebration of the fabulous resources available in the la cienega design quarter. while i couldn't source everything from the LCDQ (just most of it), virtually all my sources in the window came from right in my own backyard of southern california (again, another reason for the PS theme). i truly believe in the goal of the LCDQ of promoting local business, and wanted my window to reflect that- nothing was ordered from new york or flown in from paris, and there certainly isn't anything made in china- it's all from right here in LA. i want our local design business community to thrive and grow, and in uncertain economic times, i think it's more important than ever to buy and support local. i'm proud to have been able to support the LCDQ, and i'm truly honored to have been asked to be included! thank you lee stanton antiques- this was totally fun!
|thanks again to gray morell designs for making this fabulous banner to hang outside their showroom!|
ps- if any media outlets want a copy of my photos without watermarks, i have hi rezzies waiting and available- don't be shy about askin' :-)
