Tile Inspiration at the Getty Villa

Sigh… what a magical place

Last weekend, I finally visited the stunning Getty Villa in Malibu and basically stopped and gawked every time I turned a corner. The thoughtful layout reveals different angles and views as you wander in and out of the rooms, courtyards and gardens. There are exquisite details throughout – molding, columns, carved ceilings, fixtures and the tile! Oh, the tile! Me and my toes couldn’t get enough.

My ever-patient boyfriend stopped and waited as I photographed every different tile pattern I came across but I’m sure I still missed some. I love that they took the time and effort to install a different intricate pattern in every room.

If, by some miracle, I become a gozillionaire, this is how I would spend my piles of excess money. The Getty Villa is a beautiful, free art space that will inspire and brighten for so many people over so many years. I feel lucky to have it in my backyard – if you’re in LA, you should definitely check it out!
