Couldn't resist taking a million photos at Thomas' brother, Jack, and sister-in-law, Alana's beautiful & historic home near Moon Canyon in Los Angeles. The house is nestled on a hill among other modern yet modest houses. The ceilings are low, windows are floor to ceiling, and the walls are wood-paneled. It doesn't hurt that Jack & Alana have exceptional taste largely influenced by their travels - a blanket from Peru, poufs from Morocco... you get the idea. I even spent an afternoon face down in their shag carpet soaking up the silence (& occasional squeals from their 4 month-old baby). Though I love my raucous apartment in Brooklyn, sometimes you just need unadulterated calm.
