Today I know, that my journey to L.A. was not only a wonderful leisure trip – it was THE inspiration for our new home. The spirit, the colours, the tropical vegetation, the easy & brave combinations, the openness and the laid back lifestyle encouraged me, to bring with me this feeling and to create our new environment with the same spirit. The challenge was to translate my own feelings to originate the own “sunshine state” in the way that it is not just a decorated home, that it is my living space with my favourite colours with my beloved items. Piece by piece, colour by colour, tiles here & there, collector items, as the “Elettra chairs from BBPR“, the “Arne Jacobsen” egg chair, tables from “Pierre Guariche“, brass lamps from “Lindholdt”, ….materialised this deep imported L.A. emotion. My unrestricted way of mixing materials, surfaces, colours and styles without necessary justification or explanation made me free & brave and made the desire come true. I am in love with our “sunshine state”.  Greetings to L.A. 🙂
