Sarah Hilbert

Sarah Hilbert is a Southern California transplant who is passionate about historic homes and preservation. She has restored two Craftsman bungalows and now lives in a fabulous 1933 Spanish Revival "casita" that features amazing original details and an over-the-top Art Deco tile bathroom.

When Hilbert's not writing, she gardens, reads, scopes out vintage finds at thrift stores and flea markets, and spends an inordinate amount of time fussing over her three cats.
