Home Design Returns in LAT Sunday Magazine

HomeDesign.cover.jpg

The Los Angeles Times Magazine, once known as West, returns on Sunday, and the theme is Home Design.

Home away from home, more accurately.

“Home Design” issue is devoted to “The Baja Plunge” and features a special report by senior style editor Barbara Thornburg on five Mexican beach homes purchased and decorated by Southern Californians at various price points with striking home and landscape photography by Joao Canziani.

Mexico City-based staff writer Reed Johnson travels deeper south into Baja California Sur to take the pulse of coastal Mexico’s next big boom spot and examines the costs, benefits and challenges of developing in the area.

Tips and ideas on how to get the Mexican beach house look without leaving town.

A trio of Baja getaways for food and wine enthusiasts with delicious off-the-beaten-track adventures.

The New York Observer had a special section included in the print edition, but not online, The Home Observer , edited by Tim Street-Porter and Annie Kelly. Included were a look at a new book by Diane Keaton and D. J. Waldie, California Romantica, and Wendy Goodman’s book, Tony Duquette. There’s also a look at Jonathan Adler’s beach house and design doyenne Marian McEvoy’s 18th century house in upstate NY. Try to scrounge one up, as it’s fabulous.

FBLA Goes to the Party: Dana Vachon Merges, No Acquisitions

73912075.jpg

Fair-haired wonderboy, Dana Vachon, met a few dozen of his admirers last night at Bar Marmont in honor of his novel, Mergers & Acquisitions. David Kuhn, that powerful gay man, and Anonymous Content were the hosts.

We were thrilled to see Mickey Kaus, who introduced us to Michael Lerner and told a funny story about being on Red Eye. Lerner’s busy with the new national tour of Camelot.

But before we could make intelligent conversation, Thairin Smothers and James St. James mobbed us, eyes all aglow. St. James has a book coming out in May–a sort of “For a Very Young Drag Queen” thing. We can’t wait.

And then we met the most amusing person–one half of mystery novelist P.J. Tracy. Traci has one of those faces that looks pretty and mischievous at the same time, and we could have talked to her all night. She got us to Dana.

He told us about meeting Gore Vidal–the high point of his life, thus far. We asked if Gore made a pass, but it was so noisy, everyone pretended not to hear. We had better luck by dropping the gossipy nugget of Vidal’s voice-over work for Sony on the DVD of Gattaca.

Vachon’s going to China to meet some young guy who’s buying up something or other, and then back to work on book deux. This one is set in Scarsdale/Westchester and explores a different set of themes. Swear to god, he said that, and he’s sincere. He’s the new Michael Lewis!

Then, Jennifer Ramos of Vroman’s appeared, and we clued Dana in on the preppiness of Pasadena. All agreed that Jonathan Adler’s hairy white ankles weren’t remotely top drawer.
