Today is the last day for the Tim Burton exhibit at LACMA, so if you live in LA and haven’t seen it, then Halloween may be the perfect day to go check it out!

I have to be honest, although I’m very inspired by how prolific Tim Burton’s artistic energy is, I wasn’t head-over-heels about the exhibit. 

It’s twisted and creepy and wonderful, but apparently, it only takes one room of twisted/creepy to fill me up for the day.

But.

While I was there, I ventured into the exhibit next door, California Design and Ho. Ly. Mo. Ly. 

Amazingness in a box. 

Or not a box exactly, it’s a series of beautiful architecturally divided spaces, but the items on display are SO wonderful! 

This exhibit is in town for the next five months, and do NOT let it pass you by!! 

I’m already planning my return visit, because there was far too much to take in in one afternoon.  Check out a couple of the beautiful pieces on display:

I kind of loved this exhibit so much that I don’t know what to do with myself. 

A big part of it is that I’m currently smitten with midcentury design in a big way, and have been on the hunt for the perfect 1960’s walnut credenza for about 4 months now, so I already have this era on my mind. 

And being a California girl, I love how the exhibit tells the story of how design evolved from the literal landscape of Los Angeles and from the landscape of the times as well. 

I cannot recommend the exhibit highly enough, and who knows, if you go and visit, you may just run into Finn & I there, too.
