I just had the opportunity to spend a few days in Los Angeles and can’t wait to share some highlights with you from my trip! Buzzing with talent and creativity, the city offers an abundance of design and cultural inspiration, making it hard to choose what to write about. Here’s something that you’ll probably enjoy for many reasons: it’s literally sweet to eat and candy for the eye too: The cute Beverly Hills based maracon boutique lette.

I found not only their macarons absolutely delicious, but the brand design and shop architecture is admiringly unique and fresh too. A treat for the eye for sure! Unique little design spotlight: the brand’s packaging is actually used in the architecture, as part of the store design.

Design perfection, isn’t it? Learn more on
