East -vs- West.

I love to peruse the virtual pages of Vogue’s website for inspiration.  I recently came across this feature on Minnie Mortimer’s Malibu home. I was immediately smitten.  I love the sophisticated yet laid back vibe that she has created.  It’s eclectic and fun, but still relaxed and functional.  Art imitating life? The juxtaposition of her style seems to imitate her journey.  When asked if she was an East Coast girl or a West Coast girl, refusing to choose, this NYC transplant replies “Both!”
Minnie has succeeded in her quest to stay true to her roots.  Despite the house’s laid-back Cali vibe, you can spot little tributes to her home back east.  As she states “I’m in a New York State of Mind.”  I love how these pictures depict the tranquil environment that she and her screen-writer husband, Stephen Gaghan have created for themselves and their daughter, Tuesday.
