Isn’t there just something mysterious a gate? You never really know what’s on the other side. They can be inviting, foreboding, or pretty, or ugly, but one thing’s for sure– they make a huge difference in your “curb appeal” and can change the feel of coming home.
Saw this charming gate in West Hollywood, fell in love. The home’s owner told me a friend gave it to her and that it was really old. She didn’t seem to care about its beauty– she simply wanted to keep folks out of her back yard.
This beauty had serious style. It reminded me of the South of France. Love the vines with the iron. Not much privacy, but once the plants grow a bit, it will be GORGEOUS!
Ever since my parents moved to Santa Fe, I’ve been pretty much obsessed with anything even remotely mission inspired. I love this gate even more because it reminds me of Canterbury Tales.

I love breathing new life into furniture on its last leg!
I went to UC Berkeley for undergrad and am currently a graduate student in the Communication department at Pepperdine University in Malibu, CA.
I started getting into collecting vintage things while I was in college at Berkeley. It all started with vintage designer samples, and hunts for "new" things led me to more and more stores that carried vintage crystal and china (loving this stuff is in my DNA-- I'm southern!) Looking for china led me to stores and markets that also carried furniture. As a college student, I couldn't afford ANY vintage pieces that were high quality, so I started buying stuff and fixing it up. How did I learn? Trial and (lots of) error.
This isn't my first venture into the blog-o-sphere. After undergrad, I modeled and wrote the blog The Model Who Eats in order to document the foods I loved during my travels and promote a healthy lifestyle.
I love rehabbing pieces for the spaces I design. Check me out on Instagram @chair_candy and @RoadsideRehab
