tracy’s house

Jonathan and I went to visit our friend (and hero) Tracy and her new house earlier this week. I’ve loved her style ever since I shot her last house for At Your Leisure last year. She is the definition of effortlessly chic. Ask anyone that knows Tracy and they’ll admit to having a secret crush on her.

She met us in her hillside place and gave us the full tour of the airy, seventies retreat complete with flagstone fireplace, decorative concrete tile and wall to wall carpet. Only Tracy could make it work. She served us quiche and arugula salad, Simba lounged next to us, and we soaked it all up until it was time to go home. It’s the kind of thing that makes me nostalgic for California while I’m sitting right there.

    1st time commenter, because of Simba! I have 3 Rhodesian Ridgebacks, love them. Oh, and the house is gorgeous too! There is a lot to be said for 70′s style.
