So my sister and her family own a most amazing home in the Bixby Knolls historic district of Long Beach CA. It has not only been featured in the Rejuvenation catalog, but also several magazines and was a featured home in their neighborhood's annual historic home tour. It also won a prestigious home preservation award this year. Everything (with the exception of a couple lights) is original, even lots of the furniture!
Probably needless to say, but my sister is quite the historic home know-it-all. So much so, that she is starting her own design consulting business. So, if you live in Southern California, own an old home-early 1900s through the 60s and need help either restoring it to a period appropriate design or decorating, she may be your gal.
Back to the topic, this house. It's beautiful. Here is some eye candy for old house lovers.

Sadly, they are trying to sell their home and considering moving closer to their kids' schools (also where my sister works). But they are quite excited about a possible move to a mid-century modern home-a whole new adventure in decorating and living!
