Style Curator-Local Favorites Montanta Ave

In Travel on April 1, 2010 at 6:44 pm

Every morning I am so thankful that I live in a cute, bright apartment a block and half off Montana Ave in Santa Monica. Montana has always been a chic shopping destination, however, over the past year many stores closed down. But in the last few months or so there is a small resurrection of stores cropping up and the stores that have lasted seem revitalised. Here are my favorite stops…

Inner Gardens Is the New Kid in Town. A Los Angeles mainstay for unique garden furnishings, this is the first Westside location.

The store is really well done.

Aura Boutique

The Most Well-Edited Boutique on Montana. Proenza Schouler (check)

Zac Posen (check) Isabel Marant (check)

R and D Kitchen-Part of the Hillstone Group (Houston’s, Bandera) Quite possibly the only restaurant that will survive at this unlucky former address of Wolfang Pucks and a string of other unsuccessful restaurants.

Rooms and Gardens-A   charming boutique full of John Robshaw bedding and other unique, beachy, bohemian objects and furniture.
