Our friend and recent Readers' Escapes contributor, Eva Rees sent us a batch of inspiring photos from the Cottage Living Magazine Idea House, which we got a chance to visit ourselves this weekend...

The 3500 square foot home fits easily into its surroundings, incorporating the best parts of the classic Spanish influenced Mission Revival architecture for which this neighborhood is known with the conveniences and layout of a modern home, with all of the features we're looking for in an ideal space, from master suites to substantial closets to a living room that combines relaxation and food preparation with easy access to outdoor entertaining.

We'll be spotlighting a few of the things that inspired us over the next few days, including the vibrant use of colour, but if you get the opportunity, you might want to consider a visit before it closes August 24th. There's $15 entrance fee; the proceeds go to P.S. ARTS, a non-profit organization dedicated to restoring arts education in public schools by providing comprehensive, skills based, sequential classes in dance, music, theater and visual arts. P.S. ARTS. The Idea Home is located on 6376 Lindenhurst Ave, Los Angeles, 90048 and is open to the public from Thursday-Sunday only. The house is closed Monday-Wednesday. Hours are Thursday-Saturday 11 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sunday 1-5 p.m. For more information, click here
