Laguna Charm

Here is a very charming house on Woodland Dr. in Laguna Beach.
My very good friend, Greg Thorne lives here with his cat beauty, Freya.
Greg is a jeweler and exhibits at the summer Sawdust Festival.
The house  has a bohemian and whimsical soul.
There is color and texture everywhere you look!
In the bedroom is a very large peacock and dahlia painting.   I painted it for him almost ten years ago.
There are happy blooms and koi fish in the garden.

Home Sweet Home

The light filters through stained glass windows and gives a surreal atmosphere to a place with big ships, Indian baskets and beadwork, Hopi pots and brass figures pointing and dancing in a melancholy ballet.
What a wonderful world!


  1. Enchanting, LoVe the photos, thanks for sharing Rachel!

  2. I adore those bronzes and the turquoise jewelry and all the Native pots....stunning collections...of course the Tiffany-style lamp (lucky them if it is a real one) didn't go unnoticed by me either!

  3. Greg has a relaxed and interesting decor style - I like it! My favourite is the peacock painting, you did a fabulous job of it Rachel.
