Outside the (window)Box
I've always loved the way Southern California adds its own carefree, sunny spin on traditional architecture. Here we have a vine-covered English mansion ... with sky blue trim. The arched door, the Tudor details and the overflowing roses in the flowerbeds are authentic examples of the period, but those windows! They add such panache. If this home were a proper English woman, she'd wear a strand of turquoise beads with a tweed suit.
