if you've been following along for a bit, you have probably read my ramblings about my love of california and also mid century california design. i have lived here for almost 16 years and i am constantly amazed that i am so lucky to live in a city as awesome as los angeles. we moved a lot when i was growing up and this is the first place i have ever felt like i belonged. i recently visited a couple of my favorite places in LA and a smidge out of town, designed by great modern architects. i was channeling my inner japanese tourist on both visits and thought i would share a few photos with you.
above is the groovy ceiling in the elrod house, designed by john lautner. one of my design school friends and i took a little road trip to palm springs recently just to visit this beauty and it really is amazing to see in person! i just had to share photos with you in case you haven't seen it already.
can we talk about the groovy bright yellow chihuly glass floating at the top wall separating the kitchen from the living room???
and the cool the views from the house...
|talk about a living room with a view!|
