I get so inspired when I see people live their dream and create a home that truly reflects who they are, and how they want to live. (Hence the name of my blog…LiveLikeYou.)
I read an article about super model Angela Lindvall’s eco home in Malibu and just had to share it. She transformed a piece of land in Topanga Canyon in Malibu to a sustainable paradise for herself and her two sons. The home is in the country side, has dreamy mountain views, yet not even 30 minutes outside LA. Her eco-home has a filtration system (to cut back on bottled water), huge fruit trees and herb plantings, a charging station for her Ford C-MAX Energy hybrid, and solar panels to power the yurt in her back yard, which is used as a guesthouse. And perhaps my favorite part, the airy circus-tent-like canopy made from a re purposed army parachute where she and her yoga instructor teach yoga.

The indoors has a lot of character. A cozy rustic retreat with lots of personal touches.

A yurt as guest house, love it.
Kind of makes you want to move to California, right?
You want to see more on her home and philospohy? Here is a cool video.
