About Alyson

Alyson Pitarre is a native Californian, author/blogger, introvert, foodie, amateur interior decorator, architecture geek and “a recovering perfectionist,” as she claims. She grew up around real estate—her father was a builder in Central California and her brother is a real estate agent in San Francisco. She has lived in Los Angeles since 2000, spending most of her free time doing one of these four things: going to the movies, watching Los Angeles Kings hockey games, drinking Pinot Noir or flipping through the latest issues of ELLE DÉCOR and Previews Homes & Estates, waiting for the day she can afford her dream home (a modern vineyard estate in Santa Barbara wine country).
