chinatown + a homegoods haven

Well, this weekend Gabriel and I took a drive up to L.A. with his family and we visited Chinatown, which after living there for almost a year we'd never been. We had lunch at Hop Louie (delicious!) and walked around perusing through the various shops.

Just a few of my favorite shots from the day.





You probably know by now that I love collecting home accessories, be it for the kitchen or anywhere in the house, so I was in heaven when I came across REALM, my favorite shop, of course because it was filled with the most beautiful, modern, Asian-inspired home accessories. These are a few of the items I am lusting over...a bit too pricey for my current financial budget, though.


The store is housed in what used to be a Chinese restaurant in years past, and it was catered by an architect, so you can imagine the lovelies I saw at my every turn. I especially loved the colors, both of the objects and the architecture, deep reds, bright greens, watery turquoise. From their site, "Realm not only seeks to provide a source for lovely objects for the home, but to also fortify and preserve Chinatown’s rich history and culture.", and it does just that.
