Family comes first for Laura and Jason ODell, so it helps that they run their biz together. This adorable couple designs and operates as The ODells, a California bohemian line of clothing for the whole family and a namesake lifestyle boutique in Silver Lake (where the bar for hipness is set very high).
We’re loving these cozy shots of the family at home in their Big Bear A-frame and we’re also excited to get a glimpse inside the new Silver Lake shop for a good dose of well-curated shopping bliss, from hand-painted wallpaper to their own California cool caftans and smocks. From the sweetest latte ritual to a shared mantra we love, take a peek below at a morning with the ODells…
