The Los Angeles Design Festival is an annual citywide celebration of artistic talent that honors LAs' design community and celebrates its status as a global design capital. If you live on the West Coast of the United States LA Design Festival is definitely a must-visit event in the month of June. The Design Festival organized programming around four areas, Culver City, La Brea, Silver Lake and DTLA. Each district features a hub where guests could pick up information about the Design Festival; attend programs, events, shop and explore.
I chose to concentrate my weekend around the hip DTLA area, it’s a tapestry of creative neighborhoods form South Park to Chinatown that houses countless architecture offices, art galleries, amazing shopping, and much more, it’s a challenge to condense all the creativity into one weekend of programming. Here is a glimpse of my few days of design.

At an early age I set out to see the world, and while having already visited over 50 countries, I feel that my journey is just beginning. For me, travel and design go hand in hand. Whether seeking out great shops in trendy neighborhoods or exploring the architectural environment around me, discovering design inspiration everywhere I go enriches me to transform a client’s needs and desires into into their dream home.
