Kings Road

Kings Road

1920s apartments and hair salons with catchy names
define the neighborhood around Kings Road in Los Angeles...

But my favorite spot of all is this place...

Kings Road newsstand

The Kings Newsstand, packed with foreign magazines. I love buying copies of French Vogue and the World of Interiors before heading next door to the coffee house, where they make lattes decorated with hearts...

The muted colors in these photos are spectacular. And I'd like a heart-shaped latte now, please.

I would spend every penny in my pocket at the newsstand. Well, maybe leave enough for a latte.

I love Kings Road! One of my favorites in LA, and my friend Shannon lives right there--between Joan's and Kings Road Coffee. (She was the first entry on my blog!) Such a great spot, and your photos really capture it. Lovely!

Magazines & coffee? HEAVEN! Now a little Southern California sunshine and some good chatting company and I'd have it made! Hmmm? Who could I possibly chat with over coffee and magazines? ;)

i love foreign magazines too! its so fun to see what kind of layouts they have, how styles are different around the world, and you can sort of travel vicariously.

theres a book store that sells used books near where i live that sells a whole bunch of foreign mags and i would always end up spending more money than i should on all these intriguing foreign magazines (which are really expensive)

anywhoo...i love the last photo. thats so cute!
