The third of four homes I’m featuring from my trip to LA last year is one of my favorite houses. I love looking at these photos over and over again. The Dwell on Design home tours are a two day event, approximately 6 homes on each day scattered throughout the Los Angeles area. It was one of the most inspirational experiences I have had during my design career and regrettably, only did the Saturday tour. Regardless, I saw some amazing homes. You can see the first two homes I featured here and here.
Perched on a hill, you can barely see this home from the street. After walking up the steep driveway I was greeted by the most incredible lemon trees. It was a welcome indeed and they set the stage for what was inside. Whimsical, personal, and confident with colour, pattern and texture, this home respects family heirlooms, art and mid-century modern furnishings. It’s fabulous and I want to live here!
Collected knick-knacks, bright walls and furniture, mixed with artistic curation and illustrations by White, add a warmth and wonder to this home. With a central courtyard, each room is filled with natural light and cross breezes.
I absolutely love this design style. Mixing modern and traditional, old with new, colour, texture, art and collectibles. It shows personality and warmth while appreciating modern design and paying homage to the past.
Why don’t we all meet out in the backyard and gather around the upholstered ottomans, sip lemonade and admire the view. *sigh*
