motel mondays: part 10

so, today's motel is the fabulous ritz motel!  located not too far from the great vintage stores my friend darin and i had such success at a few weeks ago.  my favorite thing about the ritz motel is that it has hbo and so very proud of that fact that it is big and bold on the sign... surely that is what makes it worthy of the name the ritz!  i also love the groovy diamond zigzag detail on the building with fab blue tile mosaic inlaid into them...
so, i got sucked in to spending hours on pinterest this weekend.  it really is addictive! anyhow, i did learn something new during that time... someone following one of my boards commented on the photos of the bold black and white street art on some construction barracades on la brea avenue that i posted a few weeks ago.  turns out they were painted by a well know artist named aaron de la cruz and he did it all freehand!!! and you can watch a video of him doing it! so cool! makes me love it even more than i already did! wonder if i can hire him to paint my bathroom for me?

this weekend was fabulous and the weather was amazing, in the mid 70's.  below are a couple of pics i took yesterday from my favorite hike in the pacific palisades.  so stunning and views like this make me so grateful that i live in los angeles!

busy week full of fun design projects (i have two new clients!), interning, diy-ing and marketing consulting.  hoping to share results from at least one project with you by the end of the week...

for those of you just tuning in and wanting to know more about me you can by going here... and if you didn't already know... i created a facebook page... check it out and "like" it! and follow me on twitter and you can even follow my boards on pinterest too!

until next time...
