Last night Los Angeles Magazine and the LA Mart partnered with Look Galleryto present Dreamscape, a conceptual design exhibition that explores the symbolic references of our personal spaces through the interplay of fine art and high design. It was really one of the loveliest parties I’ve attended in a long time. The halls were covered in white astroturf which glistened like clean, cold snow, the walls, draped in yards and yards of flowing white fabrics along with the LED uplights created a dreamy backdrop for this high style event. Plus DJ Patrick/Crash Entertainment spun the sweet sounds and Flowers of Beverly Hills provided elegant assortments of tulips, hydrangea and paper roses.
Gorgeous interior vignettes were cleverly displayed, my first, second and third place ribbons go respectively to Memory by Paul + Vickery (serene textiles, deconstructed chandelier and chair placement), The Mermaid’s Lair by Stephen Pappas Interiors (sexy mermaid)and Egomaniac by Franklin Studios (stunning modern secretary). Also presenting were talk of the town design team, Woodson and Rummerfield. But honestly I think they’re an overrated, watered down Kelly Wearstler look. But to be fair, they dress to kill every single time I’ve seen them.
Jr. designer Elle showed up in skinny jeans and rode around in her chariot all night, otherwise known as the SoCal Contractor.

What was green about this event? I saw something I’ve not seen before: more than one person asking the bartenders to reuse their original glass. People are starting to get it! Oh happy day!
