Field Trip : The Eames House


One of the highlights of spring so far has been, without a doubt, a visit to The Eames House in the Pacific Palisades. Rama and I snuck away while the kids were at school one morning. It was overcast and quiet, and we got to explore the grounds and house exterior without interruption. 

It's no secret I'm a big fan of Charles and Ray Eames, and it felt a little bit like a dream to peer into their home and imagine their life together.

Charles once said: "At all times love and discipline have led to a beautiful environment and a good life." Looking through the windows, you can see that he and Ray truly lived that. There was love in the carefully curated collections, the stacks of textiles and books, beautiful artifacts and artwork. And there was a true marriage of form and function, utility and warmth. It is what I aspire to as a designer... and as a home maker, too.
