French eclectic in L.A.

Posted on Thu, 21 Jul 2022 by KiM

Built in 1924, the historic preservation society defines this house as French Eclectic – a common style following WWI. Soldiers returning home were inspired to build Normandy style houses with steep pitched roofs, casement windows, French doors, and a combination of timber and stucco surfaces. On the interior, these houses often took on a Tudor or Spanish influence – sometimes a mixture of both. Our role was to remodel kitchen and baths, create a guest suite on the ground floor, refresh the house throughout, and then furnish it comfortably for a casual family of three.  For all of the permanent features we took our cues from the existing architecture, and then layered on an eclectic mix of furnishings well-suited to our client’s lifestyles and reflective of their travels and interests.

Working on a Saturday

Posted on Sat, 2 Jul 2022 by midcenturyjo

It’s like I say week in week out. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Mind you you would never have to drag me into work if it was an art gallery. Galería F&deO by Isabel Lopez Vilalta+Asociados.

More from Hadley Wiggins

Back in January I featured some spaces by New York based designer Hadley Wiggins and the goodness continues so here is another look.

Here’s the city house I’m stalking today, an Edwardian house on the southern edges of Epping Forrest in London. Deep greens and navy form the colour palette with a pop of pink in the kitchen. Dark, moody, eclectic and fun with 3 bedrooms and a surprisingly large city backyard. Mornington Road, London E4 for sale via Inigo.
