This architecturally unique Mid-Century Modern home in the heart of Silverlake is a visual wonder, representing idyllic LA mid-century living. With plenty of indoor-outdoor living spaces, lush landscaping, views to Catalina, and massive floor to ceiling glass windows and doors and architectural features, the house maintains its warmth by its touches of whimsy in the art and décor. Nestled in the hills of this picturesque neighborhood, the home uses its generous natural light and wooden interiors to provide a seamless transition from indoor to outdoor.
Why this space works: A collaboration of the architect with artist and landscape architect owners produced a uniquely handcrafted property. Custom designed steelwork, walnut cabinetry, and distinctive brise soleil, combined with environmental sustainability created a cutting-edge home with a classic mid-century feel. Set in the Silver Lake hills, this south-facing home is bathed in sunlight with views of city lights and beyond to Catalina. Texture plays an important role in adding new dimensions of playfulness and character to the space. For example, the designer opts for a double layered carpet with soft, muted patterns to contrast the stark, geometric linearity of the paneled wood ceiling. While natural hues and materials serve as the base for this house, the designer does not shy away from using bold colors and patterns. Abstract art and wall-sized paintings steal the show when it comes to the living room, but more unconventional décor makes an appearance, tucked away in more hidden corners of the house, but all the while drawing an eye to them.
The bookshelf carved into the wall of the sitting room is a custom display of curated literature and LA writing that serves as the statement art piece of the room.
