Two years ago, Simone had an epiphany: “We need to stop scrolling Instagram and get into the real world.” Her solution was a design-focused excursion to LA that spotlighted its leading furniture stores, design showrooms, flea markets, artists’ studios and as many esteemed homes as she could wangle. 

LA is a repository of expansive and legendary homes, including rarefied residences from architects John Lautner, Richard Neutra, and Charles and Ray Eames among others. Unless you’re part of a tour, accessing them can be a challenge. In this case, Simone's connections smooth the way to view these homes. 

"An opportunity I will never forget. Thank you to Simone, Cindy and Melissa for the most amazing insight and access into iconic homes, galleries and showrooms. A wonderful experience and beautiful new friends."

It felt amazing being able to travel to LA with like minded people, wondering around the Hollywood Hills, walking through iconic homes, seeing amazing art, meeting the artists, designers and shopping in the most amazing stores and showrooms.
