Los Angeles House - Spanish & Moroccan & French Influences
It is almost summer and I get a nostalgic tug to be somewhere on the other side of the world. Right about now my mind wanders to a different era in my life. Summer.
Vacations of the past, and the way I am hard wired to plan and wander influence the season. I am home and creating a place from books and images, countries visited and ideas. I usually move very fast to get somewhere slow and more interesting than my own backyard. Although it may be true that diving in Fiji for instance or lingering on a limestone cliff in Turkey or sitting at an Italian café on the beach sounds pretty good, at least in my dreams, there is something simple and comforting about sticking around for a quiet hot August.
Dinner In The Courtyard | Los Angeles or Provence?
No flying, road tripping, fleeing or reorganizing this week.I pulled out my lawn to save water, will put DG on the ground, continue to line dry, and slowly let summer in.
Some Armchair Travel For Us
In the hopes of importing a little Mediterranean into my abode, I look at style and design books from all over the world. I consider the arid beauty of Mexico or the Mediterranean as I get ideas on how to live at home with style and global reminders. Here's my breakfast room after looking at Greece Style
