Seeing as last Saturday’s house inspiration from the gorgeous home of Nanette Lepore went down so well, I’ve decided to make these a regular weekend blog post. Hope you guys enjoy the house eye candy and inspiration as much as I do!

Elle Decoration asked me to write about my dream home a while ago, and this amazing house is pretty much what I had in mind when I wrote it. Nichols Canyon is the handiwork of Commune Design, who are an incredibly cool and talented interior design bunch over in the States.

This is serious States style too – the whole house is rocking that ultra-cool Cali vibe that I love. Sprawling open-plan living and tons of warm wood cladding, yes please. Last time I was in California I was hunting for cool locations for my new book and I came back totally obsessed with all the amazing houses there. They’re hidden gems cantilevered into canyon walls surrounded by woods and vines and foliage. This ultra cool pad has that mash-up of modern and rustic cabin style that really appeals to me.

That and I just want a pool! It’s grim and October and rainy here (still another week until the clocks go back and I’m writing this in the dark yuck yuck) so let’s all dream of California living instead. Enjoy the pics and check out Commune Design’s site for even more.
