The summer season is the perfect time to get out and about and enjoy your own neighborhood and city. Since it's travel and escapes month at Apartment Therapy, we wanted to share an easy 'escape do-it-yourself' by simply....
....creating your very own architecture tour right in your own town. We've bookmarked tons of local architecture gems we will be visiting - old movie theaters, community parks, vintage food joints, the Venice Canals - that are located around Los Angeles and can provide design style and visual impact. For example, the signage at fave downtown french dip joint, Philippe, can inspire a color combination of blue and white. Take your camera with you on your tour and snap photos to mark decor inspiration for your home.
