the view from veranda

the March - April issue marks our annual celebration of the glories of outdoor living. For some of you around the U.S., spring is already chugging along full steam ahead; for those in more northern climes, these pages can be a primer for jump-starting the season (hopefully, it doesn’t come across as a tease). This year, we’ve added a little twist to our lineup with a focus on California. After all, when it comes to homes that blur the line between indoors and out, no place does it better. Our special section and the sun-filled residences in this issue are a testament to living the good life.

spring style guide

Opera diva Ganna Walska sought enlightenment when she bought 37 acres in Montecito in 1941. Intending it to be a monastery, Walska instead cultivated one of the most remarkable gardens on earth, with sections for succulents, cacti, and a rare collection of cycads—which she sold a million dollars’ worth of jewelry to fund. This year, Lotusland will restore its lauded Japanese garden, revamping its pond and making paths more accessible. Consider it paradise found. lotusland.org.

Ever since King opened up shop from a perch in Pacific Heights in 1978, her emporium has been de rigueur for a cultivated selection of home furnishings: china by Marie Daâge, D. Porthault bedding, lamps by Christopher Spitzmiller, ceramics by Astier de Villatte, decoupage by John Derian. The wares are worldly, eclectic, and supremely classic. suefisherking.com. MARCH The brainchild of Sam Hamilton, a Ralph Lauren alum, March is well edited, with a modernist slant and a best-of-the-best distillation of goods from small brands and artisans. Don’t miss streamlined crystal by Deborah Ehrlich, splatterware serving pieces in a rainbow of shades, black ash baskets, and to-die-for Parsons-style butcher blocks. marchsf.com. FOUND BY MAJA After years of globe-trotting to source unique pieces for her clients, interior designer Maja Lithander Smith put down roots with this Presidio…

personal luxuries

it began, as many things do these days, with a blog. Helene Henderson (Swedish native, former model) was working as a private chef in Los Angeles and moonlighting with cooking lessons for friends when she started posting recipes online as an easy way to distribute information. Her elemental cooking, driven by what she plucked from the beds of her Malibu farm, hit a nerve. The classes grew, morphed into an underground restaurant, and outgrew capacity on her property. Poking around, she negotiated a lease for a café, long abandoned, at the end of the Malibu pier—an unlikely spot. “No one went out there but fishermen,” Henderson says. The blog gave her an instant audience, though, and Malibu Farm was an immediate hit, with diners trekking to the beach enclave for Henderson’s…
