Originally built in 1896 in Glendale, Marc’s home was moved to Hollywood in 1937. The house still has many of the original architectural details and Marc has added another level of depth to the architectural character with his choices in design and decor.

The classic Victorian home sparks conversation when creatives in the art and entertainment industry gather for an evening party.

Marc contains to furnish his home with new found objects and art that inspire his everyday living.

Apartment Therapy Survey:

My Style: Modern with primitive accents

Inspiration: My grandmother’s home

Favorite Element: The individuality of each of the various rooms

Biggest Challenge: Defining the function of all the rooms

What Friends Say: The house and decor reminds them of New Orleans.

Biggest Embarrassment: The lack of air circulation. The home gets extremely hot in the summer.

Proudest DIY: Replacing the kitchen sink and hardware.

Biggest Indulgence: Master bed and side tables

Best advice: There is no need finish all the decorating in the first six months.
