    How awesome are those signs! I am an interior designer in LA, but I moved here from the midwest a couple of years ago. This city is a feast for my eyes and imagination. From the cool shops, awesome treasures hidden everywhere and the amazing architecture, there is absolutely no reason someone cannot tap into their creative side here. I just love it. And how cool is it that you are in charge of the FIDM cover?!
