We know a couple who toss around the idea of moving if only they could find the right place: a stylin' midcentury space in Silver Lake, a well-equipped kitchen (they're both dedicated foodies) and, perhaps, a garden where they could grow flowers and vegetables. The articles that caught our eye in this week's Los Angeles Times Home & Garden are dedicated to them: a beautifully remodeled home in Silver Lake, the opening of the Sub-Zero and Wolf showroom at the Pacific Design Center, a tour of privately owned midcentury homes and a look at fragrant plants for the garden. Links to these articles and more, after the jump!
A Silver Lake remodel drenched in light: We remember a meeting we took at a studio with an executive who impressed us with his out-of-the-box thinking; a look at his home shows us that his creativity extends to all areas of his life. A look at the Silver Lake home of producer Mark Gill and screenwriter Hanna Weg.
Luxury refrigerators, ovens get a home: This month we've been talking a lot about kitchens. When it comes to dream appliances for the kitchen, a Sub-Zero refrigerator and a Wolf stove are at the top of many people's lists. Now at least, you can get to drool over them in person at their newly-opened showroom at the Pacific Design Center. (Unplggd also attended, but was distracted and diverted by the Arclinea Dream Kitchen).
Gardening just for the smell of it: Oh do I love this time of year in LA. There is nothing like stepping outside and catching the strong smell of jasmine that permeates the air. Flowers to me have always been about fragrance; what is the point of flowers that have no smell? One kind of heaven would be a garden of fragrant flowers.
