A little bit boho a lot California casual, Nathan Turner's new LA shop is filled with global finds. Having migrated over from Almont Yard, he is now at 8546 Melrose Avenue, down the street from Nicky Rising's showroom and across the road from Michael S. Smith's Jasper showroom. From rustic finishes to bohemian artisanal imports, there is an earthy lived - in look that pervades Nathan's new digs. Goods culled from global travels capture the spirit of a wanderlust. As a born and raised Californian, he has perfected the mixing entertaining, lifestyle, and decor with an eclectic ease. Cozy and oh - so - perfect for the casual LA lifestyle where comfort is key, drop by and check out his new retail home when you are shopping West Hollywood.

Nathan next to some earthy vases filled with succulents-- oh so California!

A neutral sofa is transformed by spring green zig zag pillows while a rustic wooden table and African stools round out a seating area with casual yet graphic components.

Blue and white tabletop with boho chic appeal.

Nathan's new awning stripe logo is fresh and graphic.

Chairs upholstered in a soft stripe, rustic urns on fluted columns and a white Moroccan coffee table make a seating area that is casual and relaxed.

Embroidered blankets from India add texture and vivid pattern to a sofa in a snap.

Mixing woods, bamboo and paintings of rustic California landscapes the feel is chill, chill, chill.

Another angle reveals the rough hewn wooden coffee table and gallery style wall of nature paintings.

Lanterns, small pull up tables and a mid century desk all with a slightly weathered, natural look, easily achieve a California carefree style.

Love the artwork hanging behind the linen upholstered sofa. An acrylic flower painting by artist Veronica Navajas hangs next to a landscape photograph giving the wall some real punch, attesting to the power of great art. Check out the little white wood ottomans in the indigo and white wide stripe nearby.

A graphic wood and bamboo mirror rests on a side table stacked with home books and a swirly glazed lamp with a 60's vibe.

The dogs! Nathan's labs are often hanging out if you want to say hi. They are totally adorable.

What a gorgeous store. All shops should have shop dogs as far as I'm concerned. Its the welcome they give.

Have to say I want all those lovely landscape pictures, that rustic table and at least one sofa! Ahhhh a shame I'm in the UK
