Hollywood Hills, Los Angeles, California
We bought our lovely home in the end of June 2011 and have been making it our own by adding our modern meets nature style with a touch of glam and humor to it. The home was built in 1961(singer Joe Cocker was one of the original owners).
Tucked away in the hills, you can hear a calm stream flowing outside yet inside has an urban edge to our decor. This balance of city vs. nature theme in our home matches our love for the city yet the need to escape to a calm environment. We pay homage to the origins of our home with some mid-century modern pieces along with DIY projects, art from local Angelenos and other fun objects from fave retail stores.
Some special problems we had to overcome:
-existing fuchsia book shelves (nothing wrong with fuchsia, but too much of one thing isn't always great!)
-modernizing existing fireplaces on a tight budget
- brightening up the main living space without taking out any of the existing dark gray flooring
