We randomly stumbled upon Courtney Haas' fantastically feminine Los Angeles condo featured on Mimi Read's blog. This pretty home was decorate by Joe Nye who did a lovely job of mixing Hollywood glam with a touch of traditional Americana and eclectic patterns. Take a look at some of the photos after the jump!

Two kinds of chairs cluster around the dining table --Regency-style end chairs and 18th-century Italian painted chairs. The curvy hurricanes are from Charlotte Moss. In the dining room a pair of 19th-century engravings hangs above one of a pair of black painted antique armchairs from Nathan Turner. Regency-style end chair is covered in Empire Bee from Lee Jofa.

Left: A club chair by Landon Cole in the corner of the living room. Pillow fabric is Trixie from the Albert Hadley Collection. Turquoise lamp from Downtown.
Right: The entry sets the mood of the house, mixing antiques and flea market finds in an ebullient color scheme — turquoise and raspberry. A 19th-century Chinese chest acts as a beautiful pedestal for treasures, including a Chinese lamp and an anonymous painting.

In Courtney Haas's living room, an antique mahogany daybed is flanked by a pair of floor lamps from Downtown. Throw pillows covered in Pali from Manuel Canovas. Painting over daybed by Robert Frame.

Left: In the powder room, the wallpaper is a Taschen costume book cut up and glued to the walls. A famille rose lamp and vase of flowers rests on a footed tray table. Diptyque candle from Hollyhock.
Right: In a corner of the bedroom, a round table with an elegant table skirt of Manuel Canovas's Bragance fabric in taupe. Double-gourd pink lamp by Christopher Spitzmiller, available through Hollyhock.

Left: The cocoa-brown color of the study is a dramatic departure from the rest of the house. Nye wanted to give his client one masculine, subdued room for a change of pace. Walls are painted Benjamin Moore's Shenandoah Taupe.
Right: Haas sets the table with a mix of antique and modern pieces. English handmade charger plates from Deborah Sears. Salad plates from Bardith, New York. Dinner plates are Antique Davenport from Hollyhock. Turquoise bowl from Evans & Gerst.

In a feminine bedroom that Nye sums up as "Christian Dior in Palm Beach," walls are painted Benjamin Moore's November Skies. The bed is from West Elm and the bed linens are from Williams-Sonoma Home. The French settee came from Chapman Radcliff. Double-gourd pink bedside lamp was handmade by Christopher Spitzmiller, through Hollyhock. The lavishly patterned window shade fabric is Manuel Canovas's Bragance in taupe.
