I’m not gonna lie, I’m not an L.A. kind of person. I’ve tried several times and each time I leave with a ‘this isn’t real life’ kind of feeling. I know plenty of ‘real’ and wonderful people who live there, so it’s making me think that maybe I’m just not in the right places when I go.

Regardless, it’s not often that I find a house that really hits me on all levels.  If you’ve noticed in my own home decor, I really love classic and clean design with a touch of rustic and global influences.  Usually homes are strikingly classic or strikingly rustic, but getting a really wonderfully classy mix is the unicorn I chase. This house, totally does it for me.

It’s so classic on one hand, but really cool and relevant on the other.  A woman who lives here would wear the most basic oxford shirt in the most minimal designer chic way… you know?

To some, this might just look straight up formal or classic, but I urge you to look a bit further.  Look at the casual, natural fabrics mixed with textured cane, kilim rugs, found objects, and interesting light fixtures.  These are the elements that add personality and depth to a home. Do you love it?  It’s totally clear that I’m obsessed.

The thing that really got me was the vibrant rugs mixed with the dark flora and white woodwork.  I am in love with this mixture.

The bathroom is very glam, but isn’t that wonderful quality in a bathroom?  If it were my house, I might throw some penny tile or pieced marble hex tile in there instead of all the solid marble, but I wouldn’t ever want to come across as not loving all of this carrera!

Give me your thoughts?  What is your favorite part?
