Home Tour – Part III: The Charming Cape Cod

white point home tour cape cod

Welcome Friends! Come on In!

Chez Lori Lynn is a charming Cape Cod style home built in 1951. The style is rare in Southern California (I’ve located less than a dozen in San Pedro) as it is an East Coast design – a style adapted to the stormy New England weather. Common features include a steep sloping roof, chimney with fireplace, dormers, multi-pane double hung windows, shutters, wood construction covered in wide clapboard, symmetrical appearance with door in center, center-hall floor plan, and hardwood floors. Part III of the Home Tour  illustrates all these features.

It was my honor and pleasure to have my home join six other distinctive San Pedro homes on the WHITE POINT HOME TOUR & RECEPTION hosted by the Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy. All the proceeds from the event support site improvements and habitat restoration at the White Point Preserve. The White Point Nature Preserve features 102 acres of restored coastal sage scrub habitat, hiking and handicap accessible trails overlooking the Pacific Ocean and Catalina Island.

My decorating style is eclectic. I like Country French, and English Cottage, Shabby Chic, comfortable, charm, and whimsical. I like color. A lot of color. I collect dinnerware and cookbooks. I love to cook, and as you know, share unique dishes and ideas for stylish entertaining here on Taste With The Eyes.

Home Tour Parts I and II feature views from the upstairs deck overlooking the Port of Los Angeles and four tables set for entertaining:

  1. How does one say ‘thank you’ for a rare privilege? You surely have given us one, allowing your readers into your sanctum sanctorum. Thank you all the same . . . More than anything, it explains you yesterday, today and tomorrow . . . in a world where beauty oft lacks, thanks for supplying us with a quiet corner . . .

  2. Beautiful home!!! Hardwood floors add so much warmth to a home. I love them! They also allow for so many different decors. We have hardwood and our decor is quite different from yours, but both work. A friend would be very envious of your heartshaped mirrors. She collects both mirrors and hearts of all kinds, and yours would fit her collection quite nicely. 🙂

  3. Your home is beautiful. Growing up, I always wanted to have rooms with distinctive themes. I never followed through on that. Your home is inspiration in how it can be done! I love the curtains in your living room!

  4. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home, LL! After following your blog for over year, I became to curious of your life besides your cooking. It was such a treat for us to see your home, and I can live there comfortably… 🙂 I enjoyed this post very much!
