For Peet's Sake

The house features in Vogue magazine have gotten smaller so I'm always glad when they post the photos online.  The latest is Amanda Peet's family home in the Hollywood Hills.  While the interiors are lovely, it's the garden designed by Miranda Brooks that steals the show. An olive grove, Cypress trees, and grapefruit orchard have me green with envy and add to my resolve to own a house in Los Angeles someday.

love this house - homey and chic without being over the top. tasteful and elegant without constantly having to scream 'don't touch that!" to the kiddies. nicely done!

The climate alone and the growing possibilities make me miss it more each day. Your home could be empty, save a chair and a bed ( OK, a Womb Chair) and you could be happy happy happy.

I really love her house. It is so lovely and looks like the furnishings could be within reach for normal people. (It's not all deGournay wallpaper, etc, etc).

Love that Spanish style home that LA does so well.

I love all the gardens I've seen (published) by Miranda Brooks, they are 'real' and not in any way pretentious, exactly what Amanda Peet ( adorable) seems to have wanted, a true treat.
So agree with you about Vogue and the size of the pics Heather, but they always do the sort of houses and gardens I love to see.
