Eames House

I’d love to visit the house designed and built by Charles and Ray Eames.  I love modern architecture and I am fascinated by this couple.  I think if I weren’t living in an antique home that I’d go to the opposite extreme and go for something very modern.  This house must have been shocking when first built in 1949.  Just off the Pacific Coast Highway in Pacific Palisades, California.  To put on the list for my next California visit.

Another Great Project from Lora

I really enjoy seeing all the beautiful projects Lora and her business partner do.  They don’t just flip houses – they really create beautiful spaces.  They have such an eye for the things that add value and curb appeal and they’re so inventive about the materials they use. Well done ladies on another amazing turnaround!

My One Word 2014

intention

 

For 2014, I am thinking about intention — about things I plan and about planning to make them happen both personally and professionally. Christiana introduced me to the OneWord phenomenon a few years ago and I think it’s a great way of keeping the mind focused. I may still make some resolutions but I want to keep things simple and focus on a few key goals this year and then execute them with intention.
