This is the best ever house book!!
He's never quite captured the same feel in the subsequent editions.

I love that you've chosen the crazy bachelor pad with the girl in her knickers watching a saucy movie on his kind of bed-come-couch. Great image. I also love the exteriors of all the London houses. And the seventies kitchens. Whenever I flick through I always end up cooking a very seventies casserole that night...

So nice to see this online! Maybe I'll do a post with my fave pics too!


*adding House Book to Amazon wish list immediately*

Do you think it will be hard to move to a more remote area after living in LA and NYC? Can you tell us the story of how this move came about?

Also, I bought Vintage LA on my recent (first!) amazing trip to Los Angeles. It was the best souvenir that I bought and is now on the shelf that contains my favorite books.


I recently came accross your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I dont know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.




This is my favourite book ever! I have my mother's original copy- I used to look at it obsessively when I was little and it totally is the basis for all of my style interests now.

I'm so jealous you're moving upstate! That's mine and my boyfriend's dream!


Hello Jennifer, whoa ,first name basis like i've known you for years... does feel like it though because we sure have a lot of things in common. I even have the House Book! Anyway, you just left a comment on my blog" the simple yet complex world of the collector" and that was a pleasant surprise from the author herself=) love the book sincerely and lovin' the blog. Should keep me updated as i live in Manila and i'm busy with my small independent record label. I'm definitely still into vintage and collecting though for sure. There's another entry on my blog called "One man's trash, another man's treasure" that might interest you as it's about thrifting here in Manila and reflects on how much i miss the L.A haunts like St.V near San Fernando=) email me and i'll send you some mp3s from my label. You might just like some of the artists on it. Later.
