The Window & Deirdre Keeley - creative producer/writer (The Food Network, BBC, Sony Pictures, etc.) Location: Silver Lake, aka "The Circle Guest House" - Los Angeles, California Size: 1000 square feet Years lived in: 6 months (rent) Boy, I was in for a treat when I visited Greg and Deirdre at "The Circle Guest House;" the guest house that they rent from an eclectic artist. When your landlord is this creative and loves displaying art in the front yard, there is never a dull moment. My favorite piece - the human-size hamster wheel (yes, you read that right).
- The Window...A sweet perk of Greg being a partner at The Window is that we have the luxury of trying out pieces from the store periodically.
- Misc. objects at Tortoise. We love their vibe and aesthetic. Every opening we attend we usually find something magical.
FLOORING Original to the house - cork and marquetry flooring RUGS & CARPETS Our favorite rug was formerly used as a packing blanket by a flea market dealer - we convinced him to sell it to us. It's now in our living room where it happens to beautifully mirror the LACMA California Design catalogue. (the catalogue is striped and thick and sits on our green chest) WINDOW TREATMENTS We're privately tucked away in the hills of Silver Lake and are able to keep our large banks of windows uncovered. Nature pours in day and night, aided by outdoor lighting, which makes us feel like we're in a giant terrarium. BED Nothing fancy... ARTWORK
- First and favorite piece ("Bears Eat Cholo's" painting on shipping palette) - found on the street in Silver Lake/we negotiated with the homeless crew partying next to it.
