On my last trip to LA I popped into Tobi Tobin’s Home Collection store on Sunset Blvd. I’ve been gifted some of her product in the past and am familiar with her feature in Lonny.com. But nothing, I mean nothing compares to immersing yourself in her beautifully crafted retail shop. It is a smorgasbord for the senses; from the aroma of her signature candle collection, to the heaven-on-earth hand-made chocolates, the luxe feel of all the linens, the sight of unbelievable vintage furniture and jewelry pieces, and the sound of pleasant conversations with her staff. Tobi has taken her interior design based background and grown it into and all-encompassing design oriented lifestyle brand that I am totally in love with. What I really really appreciate about her aesthetic is the ability to build upon a deep, rich black and gold palette that is suitable for both masculine and feminine preferences. It is certainly strong and bold, but with just the right amount of inviting and cozy qualities.
If you are looking for some excellent holiday gifts (or gifts for any occasion!), may I share a few ideas with you…
Tobi, NYC LOVES YOU. What do you think about opening a retail shop here?
PS — A quick thank you to the amazing supporters of this blog. It’s been awhile, but I think about all the content I am dying to share all day every day. Hopefully you’ll be seeing more from me (very soon…). HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO YOU AND YOURS!!
