I recently discovered Kevin Inman while hitting Etsy looking for new paintings to feather my nest. Naturally, his subject often being a certain Southern California coastal city, has driven his pieces amongst the top of my list. These are just some of the landscape and home portraits in his gallery.

Beach Painting, Santa Barbara
If you check out his work, you’ll see his paintings capture the light and feel of the streets and buildings throughout Southern California’s neighborhoods. You may just fine one or two to add to your own collection. I’d love to hear what you think.
Up until now I knew Yellow Owl Workshop for their irresistible stamp sets. I love their wood blockprint feel mixed with iconic images of far flung places like Paris and London. Now the San Francisco-based company has debuted a new line of pendants which is a great complement to the ink and paper brand.
More precisely, the Mohawk General Store has something for everyone. And by everyone, we mean the fashion intelligentsia. Perfecting informed and slightly utilitarian pieces, with unique cuts and European details, Mohawk has put together an impressive selection of shoes, clothes, and objects. A.P.C. shares shelves with Officine Generale.
I can’t quite believe I’ve been away from the blog for this long. Needed time to think, regroup, and happened to do a bit of traveling, too.
It’s good for me to take time and reflect on what things mean to me. In this case, I spent part of the time thinking about this blog. Adella Avenue is my way of sharing my love of California as both a place and as an idea. Writing on its architecture, fashion, design, or the talented people that fuel its creative maelstrom, is my way of perpetuating the dream and sharing that unique perspective with others.
For the many who have continued to come back again and again, I hope, in some way, its been just that. A way to bring just a little slice of West Coast inspiration to your day. I have loved the support and many comments of my readers. Keep tuning in. There’s lots more to come.
