So...last night, I donned a cute peplum top, Rag & Bone skin tight skinny jeans, my standard Chanel purse and headed to Pom Pom Interiors, a gorgeous European chic home furniture store here in Los Angeles.
My second soiree of the week...another fabulous event. This time it was Pom Pom's 20th anniversary party and a signing for books by celebrity designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard and another lovely book from Katrien Van der Schueren.
The party was being thrown by Pom Pom Interiors owner Hilde Leiaghat, her husband Reza and their son Sam.
I must say...it was a fantastic party. Beautifully and elegantly done. Filled with a fun exciting crowd. Very beautiful but also very warm and inviting. It is Hilde's Pom Pom style at play...elegant relaxed chic. I liked the vibe!
Hilde is also quietly a Hollywood go to person for design and decor. Among many celebs, Hilde and Pom Pom have worked with stars like Jennifer Lopez - Hilde did rooms in J.Lo's homes in New York and Los Angeles!
When I got out of my car at valet, I was immediately thrown against a step and repeat wall and photographed with Hilde and guest of honor Martyn. Then after my mini red carpet like moment and the wonderful whirlwind of hellos and kisses, I wandered inside to one of the most lovely stores in the country.
Hilde has designed the flagship Pom Pom store on La Brea Avenue like a gorgeous home filled with relaxed romantic chic home furnishings. Every nook and cranny is filled with a new delight. A beautifully curated collection of vintage, antique and reproduction furniture in a huge space. For years, I've gone to Pom Pom and browsed and dreamed...Hilde's designed a store where you can dream.
A whole crew of folks I know showed up...there was CM and LH who work for COCOCOZY (well technically LH doesn't work for COCOCOZY anymore, she got a new job that she just started on Wednesday but she is still part of the COCOCOZY family), JW also showed up and I am hoping to recruit her onto the COCOCOZY team part time. Good friends SN (she is so sweet and smart and gives me such good advice) and BN also stopped by too. Beata Heinrichs of Hedgehouse and her husband Josh were also there. I also had a nice quick chat with Tiffany from Layla Grayce. I was also able to squeeze in a hello to Jacqui and Wendy who work for Hilde at Pom Pom.
So many wonderful people to see and meet that it turns out I barely took any photos!!! Oy va voy!
Well...here are just a few photos I took from last night!

For those of you who haven't had the opportunity to swing by Pom Pom, you should. It is a true design delight!

P.S. Was so happy to get an email earlier this week from Lynette Vertoch of Cameos & Crowns. Lynette makes an adorable line of printed flour sack pillows. Lynette started Illume Candles years ago...she started and ran the company for 5 years before she sold it. Lynette was kind enough to mentor me when I was first starting COCOCOZY. Lynette now lives in Seattle with her family and runs her new company. Wishing you well Lynette and a happy birthday.
