A reader named Ainna wrote me about the dream house she designed and built for herself in Encino, California. She says the Cary Grant-Myrna Loy movie Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House inspired her so much during construction that she referenced it all the time.
“Pretty much everyone thought I was nuts. Especially when I showed the painter those pieces of thread…” (If you’ve seen the movie, then you know the scene she’s referring to, in which Mrs. Blandings describes the colors she wants for her walls. It always makes me laugh.)
Now Ainna is selling her charming white house and moving to a “more rustic one-story.”
The house has 5 bedrooms plus an office, a separate guest house with 2 additional bedrooms, and an 8-car garage.
I love the dark walnut floors and all of the beautiful woodwork.
I’m a sucker for a pretty white kitchen:
Lots of Carrara marble in the kitchen and bathrooms.
I’m loving all the built-ins, too:
