Today marks the first day of LEGENDS, a three-day celebration of design in Southern California. The event brings together tastemakers from the world of interior design, decor, art, fashion and architecture for keynote panel discussions, book signings, exhibitions, special events and more.
This year’s theme is Time Capsule: The Past, Present and Future of Design. Interior designers from across the country have been invited to decorate the windows at the La Cienega Design Quarter, a shopping destination for top quality home design. Designer and HGTV friend Brian Patrick Flynn gives us a sneak peek into the inspiration behind his window design — a mixed look and feel of a 1950′s nuclear family and a present-day nuclear family.
“There’s a mix of traditional and global-infused, as well as an updated color palette. And while the furniture and overall style is a big mix of the past, the family for which it has been conceptualized is all about the present, and more importantly, the future,” Brian says.
When asked what he would add to his own design time capsule, he said “a stack of current presentation boards, which would allow me to look back in 30 years to see how much my style has evolved and/or changed,” but his personal one would include a photo of him “sporting a full head of hair circa 2013, neatly stashed inside my metal Mork & Mindy lunchbox.”
