the edison!

last thursday we finally got over to the edison, an amazing lounge/restaurant/bar in downtown los angeles.  we've been wanting to go there for months.  the mister attended a lecture and met the designer of the edison, so the design inspiration was a pretty big draw {the mister is an interior architect/designer}.  plus, we're huge fans of anything in the steampunk or prohibition genre.  and wow! the edison did not disappoint.  i'm pretty much ready to move in 
and never leave.  


i wish we could have gotten some better shots because it's just gorgeous and magical inside! but you know, it's also pretty dark.  if you're ever in the area, make sure you go experience the awesomeness! 

the rest of our weekend was spent relaxing, watching movies {i introduced the mister to dr. horrible's sing-a-long blog, one of my favorites - exactly the kind of film i would love to be in!}, taking walks, watching saturday night live with dana carvey {so many hilarious throw backs to the good old days of snl}, and of course, a super bowl party.  the packers aren't my absolute number one team, but i am originally from wisconsin, so i was pretty psyched they won.  yippee!!

i'm now working on a super busy week, full of fun projects - a set design job, helping with a music video, writing a script, and planning a trip to san francisco next week.  all of this just popped up over the span of two days by the way.
life is sort of great with surprises like that, isn't it?  

i hope you're all having a fantastic week so far!


  1. Looks amazing! I'm not in a big enough town (Much less city) to have lots of different restaurants to go to so I'll just keep living vicariously through you.

    I love Dr. Horrible's sing-a-long-blog. I think it's one of my roommates favorite movies. :)

    Glad to see the week is going well!

  2. Wow, the edison looks great!

    Hope you have an awesome busy-week! How exciting to get to go to SF later on! I actually grew up in the area and am just in love with it! No other place can compare to San Francisco!

  3. I can't take my eyes off your dress. And you look so sweet and pretty!

    Safe trip to SF and enjoy !!

  4. I love when life surprises us with that spontaneity.

    The lighting at the Edison looks so romantic and welcoming!

  5. I've been wanting to go to the Edison for so long now!! I've heard really incredible things about it - and these photos do look amazing :) I'll definitely have to drag the bf out there some time!
    Wow, it looks like your life is so filled with so many interesting and creative projects!! I love that :) Please report back about how these things go!! :)

  6. Wow! Okay, I need to get to the Edison too! And I love that you too got dressed to go -- you fit right in. I'm so glad you discovered Dr. Horrible's Sing-a-long Blog (is it not the best thing ever?) and I want to hear more about these projects!! You lead such a wonderfully interesting life, Kim!

  7. This place looks fantastic! Now I want to go have a cocktail in a prohibition-esque bar. That's totally appropriate for 10 o'clock on a weekday, right?

  8. wow! this looks like a totally cool hangout spot!!

  9. Sounds like a full, wonderful, blesssed week! That restaurant looks like a great place to visit. I wish I had a reason to get out to CA? It has been years...

  10. Will you be in SF? I'll be there this weekend! I live so close... I wish we could meet up.

    BTW, that first photo of you is awesome. So beautiful!

  11. I love Steampunk, I'll have to check that place out. You both look fantastic too, certainly know how to dres for the occasion.

  12. I love hearing about your adventures. This place looks comfy and fun. Is that dress, you are wearing? I love it.
    My week is looking up. Finishing up some work and appreciating the sunshine.

  13. That place looks like so much fun! See...why can't Utah have great places like this?? boooo

    The edison reminds me of a bar in Denver we went to a couple years ago. I still talk about it to this day.

    I will have to remember this sweet spot if we are ever in LA.

  14. oooh this place looks awesome! i will have to make it down there next time i'm home in LA. glad you guys had a fun time :)

  15. just discovered your beautiful blog and am so glad i did! (the edison looks pretty swank, btw...dark shots or not!)

    also i just caught wind of the love bomb. what an amazing place. thanks for mentioning it here. can't wait to go check it out!

  16. You guys are sooooo stinkin' adorable! Awwwwwwwwww :) Love the pics--that place looks amazing.

    I've been meaning to go to The Edison for some time now. These shots are great! I'm having a little "downtown adventure" with some girlfriends this weekend...if I finally do get to the Edison, I'll snap some pics and let you know!
