On Sunday evening of alumni weekend at my school there was a reception at one of the early (1927) Spanish-style houses. This house had once been deeded to the founders of my school, but it is privately owned now. I just wanted to share with you a few of the decorating touches that I photographed and the lovely view of Redondo Beach and the Pacific Ocean as seen from one of the house's terraces. The current owners have restored the house to its original grandeur--and made many interior upgrades. The house is above the Palos Verdes Golf Club and it is a genuinely magical place.
"Back in the day" the founders actually owned the house next door as well and many students actually lived in these houses dormitory-style. I live in the lowlands of Redondo Beach that you see off in the distance of the scenery shot. Don't you just love the white Day of the Dead bride?
