Los Angeles has always had a reputation of having a unique perspective when it comes to living. This holds true to decor, and the September 2007 issue of California Home + Design centers on this L.A. Style. The cover feature is of a Australian born writer, who asked the creative guys at Sundayland to design his Hollywood Cottage. Sundayland is an LA based furniture design firm known for their inventive and playful pieces (we've featured them on AT:LA before.)
We love the irreverent use of colors and pattern throughout the home. Everything from the unexpected "Briar Rose" dress sculpture by artist Caz Love in the purple/green living room, to the suspended potted cactus coming out of the kitchen wall, to the tongue in cheek 80's floral wallpaper in the dining room, screams fearless and fun, and a great reminder that it's ok to not take everything in life so seriously.
