Domino Shop at H.D. Buttercup

Domino Shop at H.D. ButtercupOkay, this is going to sound really braggy, but I did some cool stuff last summer in LA that I just totally fell upon. Well sorta. My husband and I attended the red carpet premiere of Batman Begins (Katie Holmes is stunning!) and I even met designer, Rachel Ashwell and had a chat with her, complete with photo and autograph thanks to my husband who nudged me to JUST ASK. I went up to the Getty and drooled for hours at the stunning architecture. I stayed on the beach in Santa Monica watching the designer wheels cruise by. Shopped Montana Ave, too. Then, as I flew home, I had one major regret. I didn’t go to H.D. Buttercup. I totally forgot. What a moron. All the hollywood bling blinded the holly, I guess.

H.D. Buttercup is a hot bed for home accessories and furnishings in LA. (I guess it’s like a Fred Segal for interior design freaks, maybe?) Now, they just added more coals to the fire making them hotter than ever. They’ve added a Domino Shop, a new space to debut brands, products, and events, complements of Domino magazine.

Yup. I won’t miss Buttercup on my next LA adventure. Not a chance.

Are any of you in LA? Have you been? Share!

    I went to the store on my last trip to LA (I live in San Diego). My friend and I stopped there on our bi-annual design store trip. We went to all the stores in West Hollywood (3rd, Vermont, La Brea and Beverly). The store was south out of that area but well worth the trip. I blew the others away. It’s huge and has a great mix of styles and prices (both affordable to way beyond the range of average people who don’t have a 3 movie deal).

    I love San Diego. We were there for the 1st time last June ’05, stayed in “Little Italy”… beautiful lofts in that neighborhood, you are soooo super fortunate to live in sunny SD. I loved your city – esp. gaslight district – I loved the mr. tiki bar. Have you been? I actually love the design of that place – the vibe in the dining area is great.
