Great design suckers me in everytime:  add a fun creative element and good hair to the mix and I am hooked.

The first time I was exposed to the DRYBAR we were walking along Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood.  I was immediately drawn to it – took a photo – and posted the fun find in my Beverly Hills Window Shopping.

I just came across some really great photos on DDI of The Dry Bar’s NYC studio and thought I would share:

I love the personal ipod docking station so you can charge your iphone and listen to music while you wait.

This wall reminds me of the tufted design by modular arts.  You can find it here.

This is what caught my eye in Hollywood – a blow dryer chandelier.  Genius.

I am digging that while the rest of the space is soft, serene and lightly colored – the bathroom is dramatic with punches of that bold yellow.

Who wouldn’t want to stop by this cleverly designed spot?  The next time I am in NYC I’ll be looking for the team at The Dry Bar to blow me away….literally.
Photos were found at ddi online and list Paul Rivera and Clark Dugger as photographers. You can click here to see all their images.

Window shopping in Beverly Hills is an experience all on it’s own.  In fact, its so great it makes not buying anything not so bad….

Before getting started – we stopped by The Beverly Hills Hotel so I could get a quick peek at the lobby design.  (Pssst – while we were there I saw Ryan Reynolds!)

Then – off to Rodeo Drive…


Louis Vuitton


Stuart Weitzman

I really can’t remember this one but loved the two story front window and models up in the air.

Or this one but aren’t the mannequins great?



Harry Winston

My preferred method of travel (and lust list auto) was on every street corner!

Last but not least!!

Truth be told…this place was not in Beverly Hills.  It was on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood but look!  This place seriously cracked me up:  The Dry Bar!  Its a styling salon specializing in blow outs!  The decor was too clever!  Check out the blowdryer chandelier.

So like I said…the window shopping IS so great that it makes not buying anything not so bad!

Happy shopping!
