That time I got to fangirl and watch @casadeperrin do a live table setting demo @potluckhospitality then snap a pic that could never do it justice. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿฝ ...

My Cossack-fleeing, Stalinist activist great-grandparents Ritz. Story goes they were never legally wed because that wasn't an option for Jews in their shtetl, and as devout atheists they didn't want to go the traditional religious route. Plus the family never knew exactly how old they were because they basically came to this country without documents. #immigrantsmakeamericagreat #HVD โค๏ธ

One of those major I โค๏ธ L.A. moments: #sunset view driving through #angeluscrest after #switzerfalls afternoon hike.

Finally #LA gets #lego master builders working on representations of one of our great landmarks. #bullockswilshire

Hopefully my friend understood why I ignored her at the playground 'til I finished eating; one of our faves is now literally the closest food source we can walk to. #๐ŸŸ๐ŸŒฎ #losfeliz #fishtacos #rickysfishtacos

In all honesty it's pretty damn shameful to be an American in Mexico at the moment and my heart is aching...but as fucking trite as it sounds, here's to beautiful moments from this amazing country. #๐ŸŒต๐ŸŒŠ

After seething rage & anger reading this a.m.'s @latimes headlines, taking a moment to appreciate Ricardo DeAratnha's beautiful work on my @thefutureperfect #casaperfect story. The whole place in a David Hyun MCM home is a stunner and helps move L.A. design forward. (Also love that Alhadeff's mom is from Baldwin Hills and went to Dorsey.)

Loving all the saguaro cacti personalities. This looks like a seal, kid doing the doggie paddle, Ziegfeld girl doing the can-can, etc. Desert full of reminders about why nature is always THE best designer.

This doorway kinda wins everything ๐Ÿšช ๐Ÿ’ฅ . #taliesinwest #fllw #franklloydwright #arizona #scottsdale #architecture
