Walls of glass off the main living area and master bedroom open to an outdoor dining room, living room, lawn and swimming pool. Steps lead from the infinity pool down to a theater, which has velvet seating for nine and a 2-inch-thick underwater pool window. The 4,000-square-foot home also has a sleek kitchen centered on a lime green island, plus three bedrooms and four bathrooms.

Actress Jennifer Aniston has listed her Beverly Hills estate for sale at $42 million. Designed by Hal Levitt, the 1970s house sits on about an acre in the Trousdale Estates area. The indoor-outdoor home of glass, wood and stone was designed for entertaining and for use by an extended family. Restored by Aniston, the redesigned and expanded interior living space encompasses nearly 10,000 square feet. There is a rosewood paneled formal living room, a secondary living room with a wet bar, two kitchens, a gym, five bedrooms, 71/2 bathrooms and a three-car garage.

Your new Los Angeles Times Magazine is a disappointment. While it is considerably thicker than your previous magazine and carries a greater variety of stories, it does not have enough feature articles on homes. I realize that you have to provide wide selection to appeal to different interests. However, I feel that you have not done enough feature articles on homes and gardens. Home was always the first section I read. Please see what you can do about this. Vangie Madrid Anaheim

Acorn owners Maggie Lobl, Erin Tanaka and Laura Tanaka said they wanted to open a home and garden boutique in Eagle Rock because of Colorado Boulevard's amiable vibe. “It's so friendly here,” Lobl said. “People really walk in this neighborhood and favor local indie shops.” Indeed, earlier this week, repeat visitors from the neighborhood stopped in to shop for gifts and peruse the sunny, welcoming space. Packed with terrariums, planters, books and ceramics, the former paintball supply store features a refreshing variety of accessories that won't break the bank: graphic Pehr tea towels ($13.50)

The annual Dwell on Design show returns to Los Angeles this weekend with some familiar features: prefab houses, Airstream trailers, the latest in green cars. But we're pleased to report the contemporary design expo has some new faces too -- furniture and accessories we spotted last month while covering New York Design Week . If you missed them the first time around, you can see the colorful stainless steel indoor-outdoor furnishings by the Salvadoran manufacturer MarkaModerna, inventive accessories by up-and-coming Norway design students, experimental furnishings in surprising materials by the Guatemala-based Fabrica, stunning blankets by Mandal Veveri and, at the end of the day, rest in a prototype of the comfortable reclining leather VAD AS chair. This year's Dwell on Design Artist in Residence is Tanya Aguiñiga , who will be assembling and making furniture and accessories on site for people living in transitional housing.
