Located on Robertson Blvd in Los Angeles and known for it’s picket fence, The Ivy Restaurant has long been known as the place to see and be seen for lunch. Paparazzi often hang out around The Ivy hoping to snag a photo of a celebrity lunching at the popular hangout. On my recent trip to LA, I had the pleasure of dining at The Ivy with my friends.
The interior is a series of cottage style rooms which instantly reminded me of my friend Jason Oliver Nixon of Madcap Cottage. It was an Alice in Wonderland meets Mackenzie Childs-esque whimsical feeling decor. ~ In other words, the interior made you feel happy!
There is something so appealing about a “collected” interior to me. It was also inspiring to be surrounded by beautiful fresh flowers and wonderful to have a glass of champagne offered the minute we graced the door.
The Ivy had quite the collection of plates, baskets and all sorts of interesting things.
were dressed in framed memorabilia and artifacts.
I was surrounded by so much beauty, I couldn’t decide where to rest my eyes.
On the table were these beautiful roses sweetly arranged in a hand painted teapot!
Holly and Felicia decided to split and once it came out they were glad they did!
My dear friend Holly, who is a fab designer and also from Charlotte, but
the funny part of all that is I only see her when we travel!
Holly decided it would be fun to take a picture of me taking her picture.
Love her new malachite phone case! She is a total trend setter!
Here is my friend Lesli, she isn’t a designer but recently feature in House Beautiful which is something I haven’t achieved! She is a fab artist and blogger too. She was quite pleased with her red velvet cake and champagne!
Back to the favorite part of the meal….
It was a perfect day and a perfect meal, however the next time I visit The Ivy, I think I will skip the entree and go straight to the dessert! Yeah…The Banana Split was Heaven!
