Art Deco

Los Angeles is home to a lot of incredible sights to see. Whether it be the walk of fame, Santa Monica Pier, or Griffith Park Observatory, there is no shortage of things to admire under the skin-kissing SoCal sun.

For me, however, my interests are peaked by architectural landmarks such as the Eastern Colombia Building in downtown Los Angeles. If you haven’t seen it, and you’re willing to tough out the traffic and parking of the area, I highly recommend heading down to the Theater District so you can gawk up at this thirteen story masterpiece. This Art Deco building was built in the ‘30s and is dripping in terra cotta tiles and topped with a four-sided clock tower.

When I spotted this gem of a building from the 10, I knew I had to create a filter whit this as inspiration. The Art Deco movement became popular in the ‘20s and ‘30s and reflected luxury, modernity, and decadence. Basically, exactly what one would want in their personal space. Though much of the colors of this design are quite subdued and muted, I’ve thrown in several splashes of turquoise as a nod to the Eastern Colombia building. Small accents of of gold, silver, and sleek angled eyes exude the luxury of the 30’s style of design dragged into modernity.
