If you've been out cavorting recently, you might have seen one, traveling along Sunset Boulevard. This week's Los Angeles Times Home and Garden feature story spotlights the journey that culminated in Richard Neutra's Maxwell House, one of his few wooden and pitched roof homes, making its way by truck from its Brentwood birthplace to its new home in Angelino Heights. Be sure to check out the slide show. Other articles of interest include a story on how Gloria Swanson's legacy and furnishings influenced the decor of her granddaughter's Modernist Gregory Ain home; a tour of the Porsche designed kitchen, built by Poggenpohl, which exhibits all the sleek styling and up-to-the minute features you'd expect; a look at items for the office, for those of you who still get that back to school itching for supplies at this time of year; Anna Goeser shares her steps for creating miniature dioramas using succulents, and more.
