It has been a busy, but exciting couple of months in the DLD office. There have been many new events and projects that I am very thrilled to share with you all.

Modernism Week 2020

Last weekend, I was invited by Jenn-Air to attend the Modernism Show in Palm Springs and it was fantastic. There were many amazing events that highlighted Mid-Century Modern architecture.

The Coachella Valley features many iconic architectural homes. Of course, visiting Dinah Shore House which was designed by world renowned Donald Wexler in 1964 was my favorite house to see. It is now owned by Leonardo DiCaprio which is incredible. It was amazing to see how interior designers were able to create and embody contemporary styles in these famous homes.

I’ve met a lot of new friends and colleagues at The CAMP. This was an experience for JennAir’s groundbreaking appliances, educational panels and cooking demonstrations. The CAMP was just walking distance from the Klimpton Rowan Hotel which is where I stayed for the weekend. 


At the Palm Springs Art Museum in the Annenberg Theater I saw an exciting presentation by Daniel Libeskind: Edge of Order. His designs are dramatic and he is charming.

JENNAIR’s party was an absolute blast with lively music, an open bar and the display of JennAir’s newest and innovative appliances. Thank you so much to Fernando Marfil and JennAir’s team for inviting me to Modernism Week 2020! 

An amazing event hosted by a great company!

Building Exposition at the Los Angeles Convention Center

I love attending conventions because it allows me to interact with new, different interior designers and contractors. One booth that I would like to highlight is a company who specializes in wall plant decor. GrowUp Greenwall is a company who creates beautiful green wall systems that can be installed indoors and outdoors.

You can incorporate this into a new kitchen interior remodeling or living room design. This would also look great in a new modern style household

Content, Content, Content!

Alongside going to different events and handling many projects, I have been working hard to create interesting INTERIOR DESIGN VIDEOS for my social media accounts. From designer trade secrets to visiting different interior design showrooms across Los Angeles, we have ended Season 1 of our series. 

We are working hard to create an exciting Season 2 Donna Livingston: Secret Tips for you all so stay tuned!

As a thank you to everyone who has followed me, I will be hosting a giveaway on my INSTAGRAM
