1930's Laurel Canyon :: Theadora Van Runkle Estate

Hidden up a long gated drive lies this enchanted creative sanctuary, situated on nearly half an acre. Past the garden gate, you are transported to another time. “Pebble Court” was the home and studio of ageless artist in residence Theadora Van Runkle. Best known as an award winning costume designer, Theadora created the iconic wardrobes for Bonnie and Clyde, The Godfather II, Myra Breckinridge and countless other notable films. She was an intensely and innately gifted painter, with the soul of an artist. Her home was her life long passion, her haven and her inspiration.

Enter through rows of rose covered arches and you are transported to Laurel Canyon circa 1967 - The Summer of Love. Joni, Morrison, Zappa and Lennon - They were all here and their imprint is palpable. The home was a gathering place for luminaries of art, literature and music. The spirit of every artist that ever passed through remains.

In the garden - Vintage statuary, oversized grecian urns, sculpted free standing pillars with griffins keeping watch. Full sized wooden cherubs lounge on chairs, acting as sentinels to greet friends. 

The main house, a 1930’s cottage is as if dipped in white - ethereal and eternal. Chandeliers, floating prisms of light, dangle from rafters like sparkling kaleidoscopes. Artists studio resides at the bottom of a 30 foot barrel wine cask. Separate whitewashed casita was a gathering place for weekly salons and portraiture sketching, attended by like minded artists and forward thinkers. 

Incapable of description, this home is an homage to the essence of the artist who resided here and a true reflection of her eternal spirit.

As Theadora said “This home is my greatest work of art…..”
Offered for the first time and only time in a lifetime.

Redbird :: Chef Neal Fraser's Downtown Spot Inside the Vibiana Church

Redbird :: Photography by Elizabeth Daniels
Finding a home inside the deconsecrated 1933-built rectory, Redbird has become a downtown hot spot since its soft opening in December. Re-imagined by wife Amy Knoll Fraser and designer Robert Weimer, the space is filled with mid-century style furniture, tiles, woodwork, and shapes meant to reflect the late 1800's cathedral. The lounge area features a 360-degree bar, stunning ceiling painted by Guerin Swing, as well as elegant paintings from local artist Nancy Baker Cahil. Chef Fraser's menu introduces New American dishes using everything from Santa Barbara prawns with uni and wasabi snow to Rabbitchetta placed over Anson Mills polenta and pea tendrils. Here's a peek inside.
