EP. 143 Behind the Design: The Art of Storytelling Pt. 1

12/6/2017
More
One of the things I enjoy most about the holidays is the amount of time I have without feeling guilty that I’m not working. Time to spend with family and friends, tinker a bit in the studio and engage in the guilty pleasure of binge watching a lengthy list of tv shows and movies. You might feel the same, and while it is rare for me to binge watch, the holidays are the perfect time to do it. You are probably wondering why I’m telling you this. Well, it’s because after so many years working...

This week, we are going to explore a unique design house project in Santa Monica, California. Lagaspi Courts Design created a fantastic project house and it was produced by GC Collaborative. Here is what is interesting about this project, it was created as a design house that is also on the market. I suppose you could call this a spec home, but it really is so much more than that.

Fall has come and I for one, am thrilled. Fall in Southern California means the weather cools. Yes, it cools elsewhere in Fall but here, it takes the edge off of summer and the tourists have mostly gone home which leaves the beaches empty, a great time for a second, cooler summer. It also means WestEdge is coming.This will be our 5th year as a media partner and our fourth year hosting live conversations.
