California Dreaming...


We are very excited about our newest "lucky Retailer" - style setter Kathryn Ireland. She has a fabulous shop in Almont Yard which has become our favorite spot when in L.A. to head for a little oomph. We love to visit her beautiful design studio in the secret courtyard off Melrose.


The approach through the ivy-walled alley to her color-filled shop makes us long to travel to some of the exotic places that have influenced her style.  Once upstairs, the excitement mounts; we are transformed all at once to a Cotswold Cottage and a bazaar in Morocco.

Kathryn's sense of style and use of color are trendy and traditional all at once. Her colors and the oomph palette are simpatico and compliment each other beautifully. We hope all of our oomph fans find her hidden treasure of a shop on their next visit to L.A. Thank you, Ms Ireland. We admire your style!
