Style Notes

Warm and inviting. This historic Craftsman home was gutted and rebuilt in 2000 and updated in 2011. It is a bright, light-filled Californian home with warm and inviting decor. Decor includes quality furnishings that are all kid-friendly and livable. The inviting lounge has a tufted white chair, burnt orange sofa and mid century accented table; children’s bedrooms are decorated with world maps, oversize letters and wall decals. We love the sophisticated adult bedrooms, the welcoming lounge and the outside spaces amid the greenery.

We are family of five (3 boys!) living in Palo Alto, CA. We love to move to far away places & travel in between. Our day to day life is full of bike rides, walking into town & enjoying life in northern California.

Palo Alto, California

Tech city

There's more to Palo Alto than its admittedly exciting cutting edge technology and visionary internet companies. Dating back 100 years, and named after a 1,000-year-old coastal redwood tree, Stanford University and 34 city parks are within its tree-lined streets, where you’ll also find a Baylands nature preserve, a junior museum and zoo and multiple arts centres. There’s great access into San Francisco and around the bay, and it’s a buzzy, forward-looking place to stay.
