Houses I Love

I'm going out of town later tonight and won't be back until Sunday night when I fly in and go almost immediately to see David Sedaris (and I cannot wait for that). So I leave you with some homes I love, the last two in particular. Have a good weekend, everyone!

I like the top one, it has really nice landscaping!! Have a good trip, and don't forget to tape Grey's Anatomy!!

It's a new episode!! (It's about time!)

I love the top one, too. It reminds me of the Chicago suburbs I grew up in until I was 13.

But I'm a sucker for Spanish architecture, too.

Yeah for Sunday night. Thanks for the reminder! ;)

I love the last one, but not next to a street, more in a country setting.

number one would be my pick, though, like you, I also have a soft spot in my heart for the awesome Spanish/Mission revival houses that are all over Southern CA.
Of course, the ones that were built in the same era as the multitudes of Craftsman homes like 1 (which accounts for a lot of them) they were very similar on the INSIDE as far as the layout, use of builtins, gumwood, etc..

I'd say that 1915 to the 30's would be my favorite time for homes in the US.

I do love a mid century depending on the way it was done. Even the good old CA ranch.

My home was built in 1950 and is between eras, in a way.
Small, bungalow sort of layout with plaster walls, but still leaning towards what we would soon see as the coming of the ranch home.

I'm dying of jealousy. I love David Sedaris. And I want that house in the last picture.

I would pick the third house as my favourite!
Big windows, beautiful balconies and love the gratings on them.
And the coloured glass window, love those! I would gladly live in this house, it’s simple and elegant…the huge palm tree would have to go, though…

The first one is rather appealing too, very good choice of colours and a really nice landscape.

Second house is a no-no for me. Don’t appreciate this architectural type, too barren, very impersonal.

I cannot envision the last one as a house, looks more like a church to me, one of these modern day churches and although it’s painted white, I still can’t see it as a place to live in.

Love your house stalking posts LA, you have me hooked. Have a nice trip!

Have fun @ David Sedaris, LA. :)

I remember a looong time ago you ( I'm pretty sure it was you) recommended his books to me (on the dlisted site, back when people chatted nicely) and I can't thank you enough. I love em!

^ That sentence is so stupidly punctuated, but I am too lazy to change it.

I'm in the middle of one of his that I missed along the way.
Me Talk Pretty one Day is REALLY funny.
Love it.

I definately like that second one. It's got all these crazy angles and such. I would love living there.

bird - you can punctuate your sentences however you'd like. And I'm glad you liked my recommendation.

Ryan - You should visit New Mexico or Arizona sometime if you like the adobe!
