MY WORLD IN FULL COLOR

Kelly Lamb is multi-media artist, whose work spans across many disciplines, including furniture design, interior design, and fine art. She designs and manufactures all of her work including high end furniture in Los Angeles. All of her ceramics are made by hand on site at the studio.

I reached out to Kelly last fall when I saw her work in person. Her work is consistently strong and unique, which makes it incredibly satisfying to look at and really fun to photograph.

Like her work, Kelly is elegant and has impeccable personal style.

Dinette, Echo Park, copyright Diana Koenigsberg 2014Great coffee, and tasty, thoughtfully prepared food are what I get excited about when I go out. Besides the food, there is the space it is served in, which is often, sadly overlooked. But when it isn’t, and the design sensibility matches the vibe and intention of the food you’ve got this complete experience. I realize this is vague and pretentious statement… But still, you know what’s up when you walk into McDonald’s, yes?? It’s a clearly articulated experience.

Well at DINETTE there’s a sweet little vision happening. I absolutely love the chic Prussian Blue chosen to paint the exterior. It’s a tiny place, but the color draws you off the street and into the little take out window to order some treats. The interior is a small but kitchen. The menu for now, is homemade tarts, pizzas, small and perfect waffles, and coffee and tea that are all delicious.

I went to photograph the space and hang out with my friend Eric Pfleeger who did the branding work for DINETTE. Eric is good pals with owner Gareth Kantner, who also owns Cafe and Bar Stella, in Silver Lake.

Here’s the space.

Recently I photographed the home of Interior Decorator Emily LaMarque. Emily has a strong sense of color, that is playful and elegant. I love her use of yellow and blue and how it repeats itself throughout her home.

Last Sunday was the 3rd annual Lily Sarah Grace Craft Fair in Los Angeles, at the Milk Studios hanger.

Lily Sarah Grace Fund raises money to create arts eduction grants for public schools all over the country. This year the space was filled with giant oragami cranes, and beautifully painted Manzanita trees that the children could hang their written wishes on ( think Yoko Ono wish trees ).

The day and the space were filled with creativity, beauty, giving and incredible generosity!

The kids had opportunities to make so many different projects, to visit, to eat great food, and get their hair done by Boyd  Tizenor !!!!

Amazing and and super fun. Jennifer Levy and Elizabeth Goetchius have organized this event each year so beautifully, and put their whole hearts into making it successful and memorable. This year Dewey Nicks did portraits on site which was fantastic addition to the experience and energy.

Karen Kimmel and Kimmel kids, Flowergirl LA, Catherine McCord of Weelicious, , Estee StanleyJules Blane Davis and many many others were all on site creating beautiful and fun experiences for the kids and adults who came out.

My heart was so full with the spirit of creativity and generosity that comes out in this event. I am grateful to be able to participate in what happens each year to help support this incredible foundation created by Matthew Badger to remember his three beautiful daughters, Lily, Sarah and Grace, and to remember them through all of the love and art that comes out of his foundation.

Earlier this year I had the pleasure of spending an afternoon with friend and collaborator Jeanne Kelley, to shoot a story for this month’s issue of GARDEN DESIGN magazine. The story is on preparing food from the garden. I photographed Jeanne last year for my blog, and featured her incredible garden and the community garden that she and her husband Martin share with their neighbors. All the vegetables and greens used for the food we shot was grown in the community garden, and the blood oranges and kumquats were grown in their garden. The colors are so saturated and ripe with the feeling of spring. Jeanne Kelly for Garden Design, copyright Diana Koenigsberg 2015Jeanne Kelley for Garden Design, copyright Diana Koenigsberg 2015
