Distant: Turkish Boutique in LA

While wrapping up my work for today, I was sorting through emails and noticed several finds from Daily Candy that I'd missed this week. That's when I spotted a write-up about Distant, a lovely store located in LA, and I couldn't pass by posting it -- the store photo looks so enticing! I want to visit - it's not filled to the brim with trendy goods from top designers, rather it's mostly Turkish imports! Refreshing to see products that aren't familiar sometimes. Often, I feel like every store I step into lately is a copy of the last five I shopped. Same labels, same textiles, same... same... same... Distant is different, and sometimes when you need to break away from the norm, import stores do the trick. I think you can successfully blend imports with the big names as well, especially if you stick with a color palette and work from it. Keep your large prints to a minimum and use shelves to organize your international finds instead of scattering them throughout your space. Do you like to shop for imports? If so, what country interests you?
