Jora, your house is outrageous! What an amazing place you have. I love your chickens!
Please please tell me that you cleaned and picked up toys for days beforehand. I don't think I could handle it if your house always looked so put together. :) Where are your remotes, your magazines, your random puzzle pieces?Gorgeous space, especially the approach to the house. It really sets the stage. Thanks for sharing
It's ABSOLUTELY gorgeous: sexy, luminous, impeccable!
I don't think I could ever get sick of looking at your home. :) Congrats on being on AT -- although it made me sad to see some people making such judgmental statements. It made me want to defend you!

Thanks Ladies! 180/360: It's funny, the guy from AT warned me that they have been getting nasty commenters and to "be prepared." I've actually gotten a kick out of some of the rude comments b/c they are so untrue. Le Sighhhhhhhhhh.........
hi jora,thanks for answering my source question on AT (re. the ikea nursery/floor cushions!)..your home is just lovely and one can clearly sense it is a happy, serene home as well as beautifully designed and curated..your blog gives a lovely glimpse into your life. best to you and yours!..p.s. i'm a residential designer (by way of a set decorating film career before my own kids came along) and i find it stunning the "judgy" comments on AT about the pristine nature of your place--doesn't everyone "dress" their home for photos?? and pick up the miscellaneous pieces?.. :)
Your house is absolutly BEAUTIFUL, what a lovely job on decorating and your grounds are amazing!! I would die to just lay by your pool with a cocktail in hand on a warm summer evening!!!! Thanks for sharing.

Congratulations on the write up in AT! Your home is beyond gorgeous. Coincidentally, I just took pictures of your home not too long ago. I am a fellow La Mesian, and have been trying to document the MCM homes in our hood. Here you are on my flickr page! http://www.flickr.com/photos/cliffsofinsanity/3381088410/From a fellow MCM loving, Mothering reading, La Mesa toddler mama. :)
I drool. SO incredible. I want one. :)
Hi Jora! Your home is absolutely stunning . . . my dream home!!! My husband and I are moving into an older home in Corona del Mar, CA and we are facing some similar challenges - an open staircase/wide railings. We want to keep the original staircase. I love the look of the wood (?) panel along your open staircase. What type of material is it and can you possibly share who installed it for you? We have an 11 month old son who is extremely busy so the open staircase is making me nervous. Again, your home is so beautiful!
AMYJOYKEMP: the material we used on the railing is called 3form: http://www.3-form.com/. It's awesome. I can give you the name of the actual one we chose if you want. Email me.... Jora
