I attended an opening party for the cafe/lifestyle boutique- Motif, located on Robertson Blvd. near Beverly Hills. Having just opened, Motif was founded by sisters- Elishia Bolour and Sasha Shokrian. Together, they combined their skills; Elishia’s background in interior design and hospitality and Sasha’s knowledge of organic farming and opened Motif. The cafe was quaint and inspired by homey cafes in college towns. The menu was plentiful and provided organic, vegan and seasonal options; as well as a variety of coffees and teas. It’s a nice atmosphere for meeting friends or just relaxing and browsing the net, using their free wifi. The boutique side offers 21st century apparel, furniture and other home goods that are consigned. Picture Chanel, Louboutin, Prada, Hermes and Lanvin, as well as other fabulous designers. The sisters travel the globe in search of fabulous finds and are always on the lookout for unique and emerging designers to add to their eclectic store. If you’re ever in the neighborhood, are looking for unique gifts (like a Chanel lamp or a Louis Vuitton tray), stop by, shop and maybe have a light lunch while you’re at it.
Motif LA is located at: 930 S. Robertson Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90035. Hours are M-F: 8am-6pm.
Special thanks to the folks at Motif LA and Casey C. and Ann Flower at Ann Flower Communications.
