Am obsessed with sisal, sea grass, grass cloth and more lately.  It could be a phase I am going through.

Imagine my delight when SA who does publicity for House Beautiful sent me these photos of  the Hollywood Hills home belonging to interior designer Tobi Tobin.

These photos are from House Beautiful’s May 2013 issue hitting stands on April 23rd.

I love the sisal rugs on floors throughout, grass cloth wallpaper in the foyer, the sea grass runner with black trim on the stairs.   Natural woven fibers…I like this look..especially as we approach summer.

A sparkling chandelier, white counters and glossy black kitchen cabinets! (above)

An outdoor living room and fireplace surrounded by trees – the woven furniture and gray pillows blend will with the garden setting. (above)

What do you think of this Hollywood Hills home?  Do you like the use of natural fibers?

Happy Monday!


P.S.  Fab weekend in San Francisco.  TE took this photo below on one of our long walks with his so nice sister -in-law SE and brother ME.  San Francisco is gorgeous!  Ate at some fantastic restaurants and shopped around town.  A nice weekend getaway.

    Wow – so many good things to talk about in those images. Love the bamboo blinds paired with the black pelmets in the bedroom. Also, the birch framed mirrors in the stairwell – very different and interesting. Only thing that does not seem to work for me is the huge chandy over the sink – someone&#39;s going to hit their head! M.<br />

    There is nothing more sophisticated than a black and white home. But usually black and white interiors are more formal. This is an amazing take on a classic color palette with that fantastic laid-back, california vibe created with the use of layers of natural materials. Love it would be an understatement!
