Fabulous Room Friday 03.08.13


I have sunshine on the brain lately! Not only has the weather been gorgeous here in Houston the past couple of days, but on Monday, Fabian and I will be heading to the land of sunshine—Los Angeles, for a fun little getaway. When I’m in L.A., I spend a ton of time outdoors, so I thought it would be rather fitting to feature one of the most beautiful outdoor spaces I’ve seen as this week’s fabulous room. This stunning courtyard and garden is part of my dear friend, Mark Sikes’ West Hollywood home. Isn’t it just gorgeous? It’s like something out of a Nancy Meyers movie. I can just picture Meryl Streep or Diane Keaton delivering a fabulous scene in this setting. I haven’t seen Mark in several months, so I am super excited to hang out while in L.A. and to see his beautiful home in person. Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. Hello Paloma, I have been reading your blog for quite sometime now, and i must say i love it. I came across Mark Sikes through reading one of his contributing articles in your blog. I have been hooked to him and his blog ever since. Please do a post on his home. His out door space is spectacular. His sense of style is sensational. i just love him.He is amazing. Please let me see his home.

  2. I would also like to see the indoors of Marks house. I wonder if it also looks like it could be in a Nancy Meyer movie. Great post.

  3. Wow his outdoor space is absolutely GORGEOUS! Saving this to my dream home file for sure. Hope you have a relaxing fun vacation – you deserve it! I’m picking my family up from LAX on Monday, maybe we’ll pump into each other!

  4. Wow! that is absolutely stunning. I am at the moment re-thinking our small back yard and looking at possibly getting rid of our dried up dead grass from this summers drought in New Zealand and laying down some lovely limestone pavers and creating something very much like this with lots of box hedging and clipped buxus. These images are truly inspiring.

    Have a great time in LA.
