What is it about birthdays? Some people create a circus of festivities, and others light a few candles and keep moving. I’m in the latter category and tend to relegate a modicum of ritual on the actual, but begin to really contemplate the impending day three months prior to it, however the absorption of my … Continue reading H A P P Y B I R T H D A Y
Because being inside this kind of space feels smooth and serene. It's an era where the mind, and subsequently the eye, needed a soft and simple place to rest. The war was over, focus was on upward mobility, ornate was out, simple was in. My new listing has converted me from a solid fan … Continue reading Why People Love Mid-Century
Momentum. Don’t under estimate it. Good or bad, it has a powerful thrust and it starts in your head, so be vigilant with every thought you access. You actually can steer your thoughts.

But if you want results, this is … Continue reading Pop Physique

Realtors see houses all the time. Going in and out - thinking like a buyer, thinking like a seller - they see the good, bad, bold, big, awkward, small, and sometimes just plain odd. But once in a while you see a house and think ... I could totally live here. No. Problem. It's not … Continue reading Echo Park | Craftsmen on Coronado St.
There's something about those California desert towns, and leaving L.A to get there. Knowing you can spend the next day beneath hot winds rustling palm trees is priceless. Unpack the car, relax, and let the metronomic sound of crickets, and the soft splash of your own tan limbs gliding across the pool help you … Continue reading House in the Desert, and you can afford it.
