CALIFORNIA DREAMING

I recently returned from a fun family trip to California. We went out there with friends and stayed in Malibu and then took several family side trips. Our son had never been to LA, so we started out in Beverly Hills to do some  shopping. I really wanted to get the vibe of old Hollywood Glamour so we booked a bungalow at the Beverly Hilton and this was our view…

 

During our stay, the hotel hosted the Critics Association Awards plus we saw tons of movie stars because they were doing the network upfront previews. The hotel was hopping at night…

I loved all the old Hollywood glamour…

And design inspiration was everywhere like this window at Hermes on Rodeo…

Our view from Malibu couldn’t have been better…

And we were hoping our neighbors would invite us over for a cocktail…

One of my BFFs from high school lives in LA so we stayed with her family for two nights and had a blast catching up. Her house is gorgeous and it once belonged to Mary Tyler Moore. She’s not a designer, but clearly she should be, check out her living room below…

Loved this little corner…

And she hosted an amazing dinner party here Saturday night…

The pool house had a great fireplace and bar…

And I think my son had a great time as well…

I came back with so many design ideas and new sources — can’t wait to start on our next house!
