Avila Adobe cir. 1818


candelabra, LA, Lillibridge

This was in the Avila Adobe, the oldest surviving home in Los Angeles. I was so struck by the beauty and simplicity of this candelabra in the dining room. You could just picture family meals and all of the bustling activity in this home. The candle shadows from the flames on the deep adobe walls would’ve been just stunning. The space was so cool and quiet with a lovely central courtyard space filled with citrus trees. The way the home was build felt like a real refuge and protected from the outside world.
