UncategorizedHome Studios Near the Beach and Refreshing SaladSeptember 14, 2012 By classiccasualhome 34 Comments Recently, I visited my old buddy, Carol in La Jolla (near San Diego), California. This is the ocean view from her front deck. After a long walk on the beach, we had an inexpensive lunch at Caroline’s Seaside Café. It’s located on the University of California’s Oceanography campus but open to everyone, not just students. What beautiful architecture and view! Then, we headed back to Carol and Mark’s house. This is Mark’s writer’s studio in the back garden. It is a one room cottage built in Canada by Summerwood Products. Their style unit is the Sonoma (10′ x 12′) and costs $10k, plus approximately $18k to build & outfit. It is a peaceful, zen-like room and is where Mark wrote his book “Lead From the Heart” regarding advice for successful business management. This is Carol’s atelier in the garage. She has been busy! Even though her studio is in the garage, it comes with fresh ocean breezes and this view just outside! You know it’s a good sign when someone asks you for the recipe…like after I made this easy Herb and Feta Salad for my sister. It’s a refreshing addition to your menu.
