    Default Old England meets modern L.A.


    ( Lawrence K. Ho / Los Angeles Times ) In thoroughly modern Los Angeles, artist Lisa Borgnes Giramonti is dedicated to old England. "I'm a huge Anglophile," she says. "I've always wanted to go back to England, but it's not going to happen, so this is how I'm re-creating that." And by "this," she means almost every aspect of her life: her much-followed blog; her art, which involves presenting old-fashioned embroidery as a modern-day form of social commentary; and perhaps most of all, her Los Feliz house, which exudes British gentility and the elegance of a bygone era with a contemporary sensibility.

    how does this tie in to England? See sometimes I'm just clueless. Overall I'm not feeling the decor.....too loud and busy.
