motel mondays: part 13

happy motel monday! today's motel is the flamingo motel! located in north hollywood california.  i am not afraid to admit that i love nothing more than pink flamingos!  i do have a dream of having a groovy little california bungalow with a pink flamingo lined walkway from my house to a vintage airstream trailer that would function as a studio/ guest room.  i feel like the folks that designed this sign could have added a bit more pink flamingo pop to it! yeah, from some of my past diys (hello hot pink geomtric rug), you probably clued into my love of pink.

a couple of years ago some friends and i traveled to the shady dell airstream trailer park in bisbee arizona and spent a few nights in the vintage airstreams.  and the pink flamingos lining the property really added such a fun punch of color!  and really, what else could go so perfectly with an astroturf lawn????

flamingo art inside one of the trailers!
i am spending the day installing my latest diy project and i will be making the big reveal this week! so excited for you all to see it and i hope you love it as much as i do!  it seems fitting that this project is being revealed this week as i am in the midst of taking a lighting design class and as most of us know, lighting is everything!  so, you may have guessed, it is a light!! and hopefully you will all think it is as groovy as the mod brass pendant light i created and demo'd on the nate berkus show

  1. Hi there. I just found your blog through Apartment therapy and had to become a follower. I like your blog and really enjoy the glimpses of LA. I grew up in the San Fernando and Santa Clarita valleys and miss the area so much.
