During the month of September, we rounded out the last few weeks of Summer (tear rolling down my cheek) and introduced the Fall Season. Even though I may associate September with the end of warm summer nights, I did enjoy a strong month of design news and events. The month kicked off with one of my favorite design trade shows in Paris - Maison&Objet. Many new products were introduced and you can find a trend report from the event on The Lonny Blog.
Not only do I love design, I LOVE fashion and was so bummed that I couldn't make it to Fashion's Night Out in New York. Since I couldn't make the event, I decided to take inspiration from the runway and pair it with interior spaces. You can't go wrong with forest green in fashion and interiors!
Love California architecture that was built during the 1930s - 1960s. The Los Angeles Contemporary Museum of Art (LACMA) is hosting the exhibit California Design, 1930-1965, which will be open to the public this weekend.

Next month...Architecture Month in Los Angeles. The City of Los Angeles officially proclaimed the month of October Architecture Month, so take the month and appreciate and celebrate local architecture and historical landmarks.
