Accessorize Chicly

Cavalier by Jay Jeffers


We like to think of ourselves as having pretty good taste. But since we're also modest, we admit there are a handful of people who manage to have better taste than we have. Jay Jeffers is most definitely one of those guys. The San Francisco-based designer has a whimsical style that manages to be both high-style and fun ... in other words, it doesn't take itself too seriously. We were thrilled when we stumbled ...

The "Art" of Real Estate

Frank Lloyd Wright's La Miniatura

Real Estate

A client asked us the other day about Frank Lloyd Wright places for sale in Los Angeles, and it got us thinking again about the masterpiece Millard House, aka La Miniatura. We realized we hadn't covered it for Bungalux, so we decided post-Super Bowl was the perfect time to cover a Super House. La Miniatura, or "this little house" as Frank Lloyd Wright used to call it, is a misnomer. The Pasadena house seems ... Read More

The US's Most Expensive House Sale?

Silicon Valley's $177 Million Non-Public Offering

Real Estate

Poor Silicon Valley. Over the past years we've been witnessing a gradual migration of some of Silicon Valley's most eligible bachelors and young marrieds to Los Angeles. PayPal co-founders Peter Thiel and Elon Musk each bought mega-property in Los Angeles. Ooma founder Andrew Frame did too. According to the WALL STREET JOURNAL, Oracle co-founder Larry Ellison owns no fewer than 27 Malibu residences. And if that's not enough ... Then there's the ... Read More

Picture Perfect in NYC


Real Estate

Long before there were iPhone photos, Flickr, Instagram, Facebook photo tagging and even the digital camera there were … the photographers. And by photographers we’re not talking about your friends who Samsung Galaxy-shoot grainy pics of late nights out for their blogs. (That’s the subject of a future editorial piece.) Instead, by “photographers” we’re referring to the big boys who sat in the studio with actresses and supermodels and carried around heavy cameras ... Read More

And Speaking of 41 Ocean ...

4 Hot Santa Monica Properties New to the Market

Real Estate

We covered hot new members-only dining club 41 Ocean on Wednesday which begged the question: Is it frivolous to buy a gorgeous house in Santa Monica to go WITH your dining experience? We around these parts think there's nothing frivolous about that, and if you're a Bungalux fan we're sure you agree with us. There have been a ton of great listings in Santa Monica that have come on the market lately ... Read More

The Social Membership

41 Ocean Club


Country clubs are so 1980s. What? If that's really the case (it isn't, we're tennis players after all), then what's so 2013? Members-only dining clubs, that's what. Pay-for-privilege-of-dining clubs have popped up in international cities from Berlin to Miami to New York to Los Angeles. Here in LA, they're the equivalent of the Hollywood club scene for those in their 30s through 50s - in other words, for those of ... Read More

What $75 Million in Malibu Looks Like ...

Ferguson & Shamamian's Definition of a Beach House

Real Estate

The blogs and business journals were recently abuzz with the latest in real estate mega-sales: The sale of financier Howard Marks's $75 million Malibu mansion. In what was quite possibly the precursor to another ebullient year for luxury real estate, the sprawling Mediterranean oceanfront estate sold to Russian billionaires in an all-cash transaction. (Billionaires don't go to Wells Fargo to get mortgages like the rest of us; they do complicated things like borrow ... Read More
