Whether you’re already an official Angeleno or on your way to moving to the
West Best Coast, we all have something special in common: We love LA! And what better way to show off your love for the city of angels than by paying homage to the beaches, the palm trees, and the bright Hollywood lights with a little LA-inspired decor?
Our search for the best accessories started when photographer Catherine McDonald followed us on Twitter and we clicked through to her website. A few clicks later and we were madly in love with her pics and her pillows! So much so that we were inspired to find some fun decor to help bring a little bit of LA home to your apartment.
Welcome to the land of fame, excess. Are you gonna fit in? Of course you are! And now so will your apartment with these fun and fabulous LA-inspired decor items.
