Mystery Gate Revealed

We were invited to a Fourth of July party in The Malibu Colony. We didn’t realize what a treat this was until we arrived at the gate and chose to walk in instead of using the valet service. We immediately spied wildly expensive cars and unbelievably amazing homes. Although we tried not to be star struck, we were!

Without being too obvious I snapped a pix of a stunning gate.

And a few of the stunning party house, perched on the Pacific.

The tv room had walls that opened wide to the courtyard. I wanted to immediately repaint our house the same color.

And buy all new furniture and change windows and moulding. I have never wanted to redo my house top to bottom, but suddenly I did. One can dream!

Dinner was served buffet style. We had the most delicious salmon cooked on a salt block and grilled lobster. I was photographing this from a deck suspended over the sand and facing the ocean. Wish I had taken pictures of the bar, powder room, living room, master bath and rooftop deck. I couldn’t find fault with anything but I couldn’t pull out the phone constantly.

We were treated to three fireworks displays, including the private one put on by the Colony residences. The evening was incredible from beginning to end and such an unexpected treat. Today I was surprised to see the house behind the turquoise gates featured on Hooked on Houses . The house lives up to the gate, that’s for sure. Take a quick peek.

Very soon I will post about another party and what “casual elegant” attire means in Malibu. Let’s just say it is something else entirely in my world.
