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:
LIBRARY – Originally the Formal Dining Room
