Jonathan Lo and I met one another through our blogs about three or so years ago. With a shared love of hue we often exchanged postcards from our various travels across the globe and finally met in person during a trip to NYC in 2013. So when it came to exploring LA ahead of the final stop on my book tour with west elm, I was super excited to explore Jon’s favourite design stores and eateries in the city’s vibrance Venice district. With our pal and talented photographer Dabito along for the ride, we set off colour hunting around the area for an afternoon under the SoCal sun. Click over to West Elm’s blog Front & Main to read our full guide to Venice, along with stacks of extra snaps from the day. Thanks for everything, JoLo!

  1. Ohh looks so FAB – 2 cool blogger loose on Venice beach – what’s not to LOVE. Happy weekend Will,

  2. Will, you look like you are having a fabulous time in the States! Maybe I can find myself a role and follow you if you do book number 2. How does ‘fan club controller’ sound? Your pals Dabito and Jonathan are so cool. Hopefully get to meet them one day! Anyway, so happy for your success! x

  3. I only just discovered your lovely blog through Apartment Therapy, and imagine my happy surprise to recognize Dab’s lovely work in combo with yours! I’ve been a fan of his for a long time and am happy to add you to the list. 🙂 Congrats on the book!

  4. Will, so great to see these photos during your tour. Hope you’re enjoying your well deserved break now. xx

  5. Fabulous to see these colorful shots with 3 talented misters united! I’ve been a long-time follower of Jon and love his eye for color & style. His TGIF video breaks are the best! Of course I just had to pin that image at Chariots on Fire to our Urban Jungle Bloggers board 😉 Hope you are well!
