City of angles On the climb of the storied Hollywood Hills is where you’ll discover this picturesque cottage-style home, a mesmerizing backdrop for your stay. Within its cornflower blue and brick-laid exterior it’s a walk-in photo gallery, blending beautiful wood paneling and floor-to-ceiling windows that face delicate mid-century furnishings – perfectly positioned to catch the light just so. And the hip cafes and smart shops of Franklin Village wait just down the slope, waiting for you to come take your best shot. Shutter bug Your host is an editorial photographer who travels often to capture and share the lives of others. At home she enjoys far less flash, basking in the greenery of the hill with her two Welsh Terriers. Filling the frame A wide-angle windowed wall in the coved breakfast nook illuminates beyond to the adjacent cosy den, complete with a leather couch for warm contemplation. The azure-tiled kitchen makes any dish a stunning subject to enjoy, especially when it’s presented in the charming dining area with its ebony floor. The comfy linens of both beds – one framed in beech and the other brass – offer replenishing repose, unless you’d prefer to doze beneath the bamboo and fruit trees in the lush back garden. And those seeking further outdoor exposure are minutes from hiking trails and the Griffith Observatory.
