Chapter and verse It’s been said LA is a city where ’nobody reads‘, but one visit to this literary haven and you’ll find yourself telling rather a different story. Each new room in the home is like the next engaging chapter of a vibrant text: entertaining, engrossing, and enlivening the senses as it brings the author’s world right to your fingertips in all its color and variety. Whether you’re a casual browser or the choosiest bookworm, you’ll feel enriched by the impressive collection of artifacts and innumerable tomes on display. And the story continues on foot outside your front door, throughout the historic neighbourhood of Larchmont Village. A note about the author Your host is a writer, poet, translator and artist whose work has taken her to a great many cities and foreign lands. Her thirst for knowledge is often slaked by her continued accumulation of printed work, but her deliciously strong homemade coffee will occasionally also do the trick. Palimpsest The varied chambers of this eclectic home are coated with artwork, designs, and books – ordered upon beautifully ornate furniture surfaces and shelves – that speak of multiple cultures, in multiple languages and accents. The colourful kitchen feels appropriate for any world cuisine you can muster, and the plush living room doubles as a gallery of bibliographic and anthropological prize catches: exotic masks, an oriental mural, African sculptures and a Weber standing piano. The bedrooms are bright with intercontinentally-influenced comfort, while the backyard’s grill-ready dry flagstone patio and delicately carved canopy seating make for a book club meeting that’ll be the envy of readers everywhere. Finally, with just one turn of a page you can easily find yourself among a myriad of restaurants and shops in the surrounding neighborhood.
