Inspired By: Ojai
Just a short drive from both Los Angeles and Santa Barbara is a tiny paradise hidden in the Southern California hills–or maybe not so hidden, as long as you’re “in the know.” The small town of Ojai holds a population of well under 10,000, yet it’s a popular destination for city-weary tourists and spa-seekers alike. Top reasons that Ojai will forever have the REstyle team’s heart? Here’s a short list just to get started! One, the natural landscape is gorgeous, in a rolling-hills-covered-by-citrus-groves kind of way. It’s hard to beat those pastel-tinted mountains in the distance, too. Two, the city forbids chain stores by law, and instead focuses on an economy based on unique shops, boutique hotels, alternative energy and organic farming. Three, there’s something really special about Ojai style: that unique blend of desert boho chic with Spanish colonial grandeur. Maybe it’s just the intoxicating scent of lemons and pixie tangerines on the breeze, but we’re hooked! We’ve rounded up our best collection of Ojai inspiration below, plus a handful of REstyle Picks based on the Southwestern vibes (think leather, antlers, and woven textiles) with Mediterranean flair (wrought iron, outdoor seating and blooming citrus branches). Still can’t get enough inspiration? There’s even more to see and click over at our Inspired by Ojai Pinterest board, for even more eye candy and links.
