The Agenda: Ojai’s In The Field, Hollyhock House, And California DreamingAuthor:Lindsey Shook
90 miles from Los Angeles, the sleepy town of Ojai is getting a decidedly design-centric bent. Husband and wife duo, Channon and Bianca Roe, recently opened In The Field in a Spanish Colonial Revival-style building to bring their well-traveled lifestyle sensibility to this increasingly popular weekend destination. Channon also uses the store as a home base for his budding interior design business. Look for Rachel Craven table linens and Matteo bedding, both LA-made goods that are artfully displayed on plywood shelving and vintage tables.
When: 11am-6pm, Wednesday–Friday; 10am-6pm, Saturday; 10am-4pm, Sunday

Frank Lloyd Wright’s 1921 design was originally built as a private home for oil heiress Aline Barnsdall, but the 5,000-square-foot abode was donated to the city and has just been nominated as a UNESCO site. The landmark building in the middle of Barnsdall Art Park is seeing visitors again following an extensive three-year shutdown to fix leaks, drainage problems, and the restoration of architectural details. This is a rare chance to set foot inside the only Frank Lloyd Wright structure on the West Coast that’s open to the public.
