Enter House TourAT Survey: Our style: A work in progress and an exercise in cooperation. My wife has more classical taste while I lean more towards rustic, industrial, or modern. Inspiration: Eclectic versatility. We have moved around a bit over the past couple years. So we like things that travel well and we can use in a variety of situations or environments. Favorite Element: Artwork, some of our art we have acquired while traveling together, it always reminds us of those experiences. Biggest Challenge: Clutter and Storage. We’re both collectors. What Friends Say: It has a museum quality. We have high ceilings and lots of great molding. The house was for a period of time owned and renovated by iconic Interior Designer William Haines. A lot of his influence and designs still remain today. If anyone is interested start at www.williamhaines.com Biggest Embarrassment: It’s not too embarrassing but this is the first time we’ve not had a second bedroom. We really enjoy having family or friends stay with us so it can be a challenge. Proudest DIY: For me it’s our garden although I didn’t shoot it for this tour, unfortunately. Monica is the architect and she did an amazing job. (Apartment Therapy readers, we'll do a follow-up on their outdoor space soon!) Biggest Indulgence: Our sofa. It is a custom piece I designed and had made here in LA. We spent a little more, but the quality is excellent and we supported local artisans. Best advice: Be patient and find the things you’ll love and enjoy for years to come. Sometimes it may mean spending a little more, within reason, but you’ll have something you won’t grow tired of. Eventually, if you want to change it up, you may be able get some kind of return. Dream source: Just one? Les Puces Paris, LA: I love Blackman Cruz, Blend, Empiric, Orange, Lawson Fenning, Bourgeois Boheme, and of course Gibson.
