This home furnishings and decor boutique is a superlative model for how to arrange living spaces and to successfully blend different aesthetics into one glorious array.
A hidden treasure in Pasadena, The Majestical Roof is not easy to find: Follow a sign off Fair Oaks Avenue, down a brick-road tunnel and into a quiet courtyard, where the boutique is tucked away on one side.
The temporary store features new looks from Wasabi (Pearson’s line), repurposed vintage jewelry, collectibles and accessory lines. Some items are one-of-a-kind.
Pearson combines vintage costume jewelry with semi-precious stones, sterling silver and gold-filled chains.
More than two dozen pieces from her collection, culled from items at estate sales, thrift stores and the Rose Bowl Flea Market, are up for sale at the annex. (No word on how many are left.)
Pearson calls the space mid-century modern meets thrift-store chic.
24 Smith Alley, off One Colorado courtyard. Mon.-Sat., 11 a.m.-8 p.m.; Sun., noon-7 p.m. Through Jan. 10. (626) 793-7584

We’ve also spotted the Los Angeles-based artist, alongside fellow visual genius Lola, at the Rose Bowl Flea Market in Pasadena, where the pair said they have a favorite dealer for vintage frames (of the picture variety — not eye wear).
