If our list of LA's best home goods shops inspired you to give your drab pad a stylish makeover, here's one way to wake up your inner Kelly Wearstler. Next week, the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood is toasting its 40th birthday with Westweek, a free two-day design event open to enthusiasts and industry pros alike.
Taking place Wednesday, March 25th and Thursday, March 26th from 9am to 6pm, the creative juice-inducing fest promises nearly 100 exhibits, open house events, showcases, and talks helmed by top design talents, thinkers, editors, and leaders. Highlights include "...Or Maybe It's the Weather?", a discussion with interior decorators, artists, and sculptors on LA's design movement (Wednesday, 3pm); stylish home tour blog Domaine's Insta-happy "Selfie Soiree" and mixer (Wednesday, 2pm), and a chat with A-list decorator, designer, and Million Dollar Decorator star Mary McDonald (Thursday, 10am), among others.
