Inspiration by Anais Nin, femininity, the Silver Lake Hills and the 1960s.

I recently learned that controversial writer (Henry & June), erotica advocate and elegant bohemian Anais Nin lived in my neighborhood, with husband Rupert Pole, for about 20 years beginning in 1962.  She helped design her hill-perched Silver Lake getaway home with architect Eric Lloyd Wright (grandson of Frank Lloyd Wright).

Needless to say, I'm now officially obsessed with the house and it's feminine take on early 60s Modern architecture.  Nin's decor style is not dissimilar to my own… nods to Japanese style and Chinoiserie, ethnic textiles and mixing clean, mod pieces with organic, natural-y furniture and classically refined American & French staples.  So, there aren't many tasks I enjoy more than searching for new goodies that work for the likes of Ms. Nin.
