Photos of Casa Shelter Half bySinuhe Xavier. Last week I wrote a piece about seven new and alternative places to stay in L.A., and one of them is the newly-opened vacation rental calledCasa Shelter Half. Designed by the owner of the now-closed Shelter Half store on La Brea and founder of Environment Furniture, Davide Berruto, and Heather Heron (who designed the first women's line for Almond), "Casa" is tucked behind Abbott Kinney Boulevard, ideal for both privacy and convenience. It's available to rent out like an Air BnB ($600 per night, $675 on weekends) as well as for parties and events. The interior is so good, had to share more photos here.
