The best part about moving to a new city is meeting amazing people. I found a total gem. Her name is Lulu Powers and she is THE Entertainologist  - never heard of an Entertainologist? Probably because Lulu created it and deservingly so. She truly takes entertaining to a new level and has a huge celebrity following though she would never share. Think Madonna and beyond.  I love her blog - Lulu Powers. At every divine event here in LA -- I find the genius behind the decor, music, gorgeous waiters and phenomenal and sometimes comical food, think Frito pie: snack bag of Frito rolled down adorned with beef short ribs sour creme cheddar cheese and scallions - YUM!  Or caramelized bacon served as a first course at a chic dinner that  is Lulu. You might have seen her book:
Or Gorgeous Home in Lonny Dec 2010
The original play station

Love the marked territory with a monogram

Every room is fun just like Lulu.

I won't even go into her wardrobe which is always colorful vintage and J'adorable! Would love to hear what you think. XO

White Floors

White paint on the walls is a miracle and can transform any room but when you put it on the floor as well it is a major statement and makes every room perfection!

One Off

Love the idea of one off idea in a door. This would be amazing in a hallway with many doors or to distinguish your apartment from the rest on the hall.

How to bring the life back into a room

My  room  looks dead and is screaming for color. A throw is the easiest way to resuscitate. Who makes the best?

Prefab Office

I am starting a new business which I am soooooo excited about but I can not work out of my kitchen anymore because I am getting fat. How amazing would it be to have an office plopped down on my back yard. Would love it!
"The OfficePOD is powered by a discrete electrical connection to your home, while web and phone connections can either be hard-wired or operated via WiFi.  The unit is lit by recessed lighting in its ceiling and with reflected light hidden within the walls.  To the right of the desk is a series of attractive, wood-slatted storage options from closeted shelving and large drawers.  While pricing wasn’t readily available on the OfficePOD website, we can’t imagine this would carry the same cost as office space within your area.
As three-year veterans of the work-from-home lifestyle, we can tell you firmly that the commute cannot be beat.  While distractions are numerous, having a separate space has always been a goal of ours.  We welcome the concept that OfficePOD brings, and would love to get one of these in our own back yard.  [officepod viafreshome]"  article and images Found Via The Coolest
