Lately a lot of beautifully designed spots have opened up in Los Angeles and Ray's & Stark Bar at LACMA is one of them. I popped over there the other night and enjoyed my "Lost in Yonkers" cocktail (pictured above) and a gorgeous evening. Situated in the courtyard of LACMA, the farm-to-table restaurant (Ray's) and the curated cocktail bar (Stark) offer pops of color, infused modern style and, of course, perfectly mixed and shaken cocktails and great food. I loved the small conversation areas and the mix of chairs and tables. If you are into trying a new design element in your small space, consider mixing your styles. I love mixing to add flavor to a space and to create dimension. I also love the red and blue palette - very cool tones. Small space tip - cool colors make a small space appear bigger. Don't we all love that?
