Chic in LA: Almont Yard

03 . 25 . 10

I mentioned that I had a day of design last Friday in LA and it all started at Almont Yard. This chic little garden used to be a parking lot before shop owner Nathan Turner and his then neighbor Peter Dunham decided to create this little oasis in 2008.

Peter Dunham has since moved over to a new space on La Cienega, more on that later, and now Kathryn Ireland has moved into his old space. Also, in the back is Harbinger and Lucca Studio, more on those later too!

I fell in love with this beautiful space the minute I saw it and would definitely move to LA if I could work in a place this pretty. It was really relaxing!
The stores around Almont Yard often throw chic soirees including one sponsored by One Kings Lane that Christian of Maison21, Lisa of A Bloomsbury Life, Katie of Katiedid, Style Curator, and Mary of Sprinkles Design all attended last night!

There was a little kumquat tree tucked into a corner! So cute!

If I worked here, I’d be be sitting at little table everyday typing on my laptop!

We loved the Almont Yard garden so much, we decided to take a few photos for posterity!

Not sure if Christian is going to be mad at me for posting this one but I thought it was cute! Check back soon for my posts about all the fabulous stores in Almont Yard and around LA!

    This is glorious! I’m local and thus will be checking it out soon. Ivy gives such a great old English look to spaces. Too bad it hoards water and is not native to LA, oh well, looks fantastic.

    What a fun way to shop! It seems so homey and welcoming for a “to the trade” showroom. I must put this trip on my list of things to do. Thanks for sharing.

    OMG, where is this? I live in L.A. and didn’t know about this place, which is where I think you’ll be able to find me for the rest of my life! But seriously, where is it? I googled it without success.
