Abbot Kinney in Venice, CA





We traveld down to Los Angeles last week in order to see the exhibition at MOCA, Art in the Streets, I will share some amazing photos of the artworks with you after! We really enjoyed the short road trip around Los Angeles. We visited this amazing area called Abbot Kinney Boulevard in Venice, which is full of ultra-hip shops, restaurants, galleries and cafes. What makes Abbot Kinney Boulevard so special is the unique boutiques with independent spirits and designs. Actually, you can seldom see the big store brands but those independent designers' works and great private labels in the boutiques. Almost all of the stores were remodeled from the residential houses which maintain the original structures but they were redesigned to fit the stores creatively. Here are some pictures of the stores to share with you. Truly, they are so fascinating and inspiring. You can see how they creatively changed these houses into the stores. Enjoy!
