When she first saw the words "La Boheme" inscribed above the fireplace, Hillary Danner knew this home was meant to be hers. The massive mantel is a place for her favorite artwork, including a sailboat watercolor by her grandmother, center, a Roderick Smith painting of the Huntington Botanical Gardens, right, and a heart drawing by Danner's daughter that's taped to the mantel and reads: "Dear Santa, please can you wake me up? From Emma."
