Despite relocating to L.A. from Australia just three short years ago, I could not feel more at home. The MyDomaine family welcomed me with open arms and the Los Angeles design scene quickly followed with its ongoing support. This city is a thriving mecca of inspiring design talent who are cultivating a diverse and vibrant creative culture. So with the onset of another year, Chairish reached out to celebrate this group of design leaders with a special lunch (and personalized "Viva La Vintage" bomber jackets) that I co-hosted with the company's co-founder Anna Brockway at the quaint Spartina restaurant on Melrose.
Can you think of a better way to kick off the New Year? Brockway thinks not. "My 2018 promise to myself was to say thank you more often," she explained over lunch. "This luncheon was a way to thank important L.A. designers, influencers, and tastemakers who have helped make Chairish successful, especially Sacha Strebe of MyDomaine, who has provided us endless creative inspiration, wise advice, and has simply been a fantastic partner in crime to the Chairish brand."
To keep the celebratory theme alive, Chairish also asked me to curate all my favorite vintage pieces and of course, I chose the monochromatic theme to align with the all-black aesthetic of my wardrobe. You can see all the monochromatic selects at Chairish, further showcasing the high impact of a single shade. Step inside our beautiful luncheon and celebrate design with us. Here's to an exciting 2018.
I worked closely with the Chairish team to create a tablescape that not only tapped into the monochromatic theme of my Chairish curation but also felt fresh, inspiring, and in line with the New Year. I chose to layer gray tones with linen fabric for the tablecloth and napkins. I wanted a really organic and earthy feel. Thankfully, this wonderful Etsy store made it easy and affordable.
We enlisted the talents of Kristen Caissie of Moon Canyon to create the poetic floral arrangements. I wanted seasonal posies in green and white with a hint of pastel pink. The end result could not have been more perfect.
