I have had two children go to Redwood Village and under two different directors and we've had wonderful experiences with both of our children. We loved the facility and found their philosophy to be perfectly developmental without being too much of a "method" school. They just made sense, and used common sense. I felt that both of my children were extremely nurtured and well taken care of there. Highly recommend it!
Genie Gable has impeccable taste and knows her colors like no one else! She definitely has a penchant for clean, modern design but is great with any budget. Her spatial awareness is incredible and continues to come up with fantastic space saving ideas for us. I give her the highest recommendation and will work with her again and again.
Jin Patisserie is a beautiful little tea house in a garden setting right on Abbot Kinney Blvd. The tea is delicious and well selected. The patisseries are works of art that taste as good as they look! The have pre-packaged cookies and treats which make wonderful gifts and their handmade chocolates are absolutely gorgeous! A lovely experience!
Big Red Sun is the most amazing plant/design/home & garden store I've ever been to! All of their succulent arrangements are just stunning and range from contemporary to playful. They have both indoor and outdoor arrangements in all sizes. They have so many treasures in their shop and garden that just being there is a wonderful experience. What I love the most is that they will refurbish their arrangements so you don't have to buy the vessels over and over. Truly - this place is a gem!
This store is exactly as it sounds - an absolute treasure trove of amazing pieces of furniture, art, obects d'art, textiles, etc. Each piece is selected with such a discerning eye; I'm always amazed with this store. Inventory changes often as the buyers go to Europe and international destinations for their stock. Truly - it is indeed a Trove.
Because I'm a photographer myself, I am pretty discerning when it comes to choosing a photographer for my own family portraits. Trish Reda is someone whose art inspires me to no end. Not only is she brilliantly talented, she's fun, easy to work with and my kids love her. If you're looking for true art in your family portraits, Trish Reda will exceed your every expectation.
Don't let the tiny little space in the not so lovely mini-mall dismay you - this place is delicious! I was a little unsure of it judging by the looks but their burritos and tortas are seriously some of the best I've ever had. VERY fresh tasting and huge portions. Love this little place!
M Cafe is as delicious as it is nutritious! It's not for everyone, to be sure. But if you like really tasty, clean, organic,food - this place is for you. I love the space as well - bright and cheerful.
Angel's Piano Bar and Supper Club is hip and lovely way to spend your evening. The cocktails are amazing - try the Ginger Grape Twist or the Lemon Vebena. They also have some tasty dishes and a great happy hour. Highly recommend this place!
Zanzibar is definitely one of my favorite clubs in Los Angeles. Being a mother of two, I don't want to go to a place where I feel like I'm a chaperone and this is never the case at Zanzibar. Zanzibar has such a great mix of people, amazing dj's, and so many great live shows - it has never disappointed me.
