Jaclyn Johnson's style is so nice, we've toured her home twice! She's the creator of Create & Cultivate, "an online platform and offline conference for female entrepreneurs in the digital space." She's also the founder of (No Subject), a marketing and events agency. It's no surprise that the home she shares with her fiance in Los Feliz is bold, colorful and lively. And exploring a "well-designed" day in a part of LA through her eyes is just as vivid and vibrant! Use this post to armchair travel or to bookmark ideas for your next visit.

Jaclyn Johnson has lived in the Los Feliz neighborhood for eight years. Below, her version of a "well-designed day" in Los Angeles:


My favorite way to start the morning? A 7am hike at Griffith Park. The views, the smell and the skyline are absolutely lovely. It’s a great place to get peace of mind before heading into a busy day!

Next up, coffee of course! I always hit up @alfredcoffee, which not only has the best coffee but a gorgeous interior as well.

A very handsome diner by the guys behind @SpareRoomHwood, @eatwinsome has classic details at every corner and a killer egg sandwich to boot!

A little dose of Tulum in LA, this adorable bungalow-esque massage haven is a must-go to in LA. @thenowmassage

The hills of Silver Lake have staircases weaving through them, especially near the reservoir, which is one of my favorite spots! Recently, @thepaintedline took over the steps with her beautiful murals; this is one of my favorites.

Speaking of murals, a must-stop shop of quirks and random things is @wackoandsoapplant. It has a very extensive mural outside its shop in Los Feliz. Inside you will find all sorts of random gifts, art and books that are rare finds.

@atmomed is right across the street from our office so we eat there quite often. Oh, and it happens to have the most glorious tiled bar you ever saw!
Rent a bike in Venice on the beach then head up the bike path to Manhattan Beach for beautiful views and good food. I recommend @eat_FWD for oysters and rose!

An on-the-go counter service spot that has delicious tartines and coffee. For a quick coffee meeting you cannot beat this place. @dinette.la

Beyond the amazing Jen Stark mural, @platform_la is a recently opened collection of shops, food and art! From Aesop to @bluebottle and more, there is so much to see and do and photograph :)

Our "well-designed day" neighborhood guides are a visual tour of what a great day looks like from the perspective of a local.

You've loved the peeks inside gorgeous homes from around the world, so we thought we'd ask house tour stars to share their other homes—the neighborhoods and cities they live in. These are the stylish, colorful, bold and fun spaces that these locals would visit if they were designing a great day of stopping at favorite spots. You can follow on our Instagram as we post images from their well-designed day and read more about this series.
