continuing with our tour of all things california, today i have a special peek into the home of our visual manager for the west coast region! she lives in the silver lake section of LA with her boyfriend (who is in the band sea wolf) and adorable puppy claude, and describes her home as “mid-century vintage with a heavy dose of southwestern/navajo objects tossed in. we are also inspired by our love of the desert and have about 20 beautiful, thriving succulent plants potted on the porch!”

sounds awesome! let’s check it out…

left: “I try to run 3 or 4 times a week around the Silver Lake reservoir. This is one of three giant staircases to run up on the way back to my house, which is located on a hill in Silver Lake!”

right: the front yard



front yard and porch.


“the living room…we have no tv, by choice.”


“This vintage chair was given to me many years ago by my dear friend Kelly. The chair has moved from Athens, GA to Madison, Wisconsin to New York City to Los Angeles. I’m still in love with it and can’t believe she gave it to me!!”


left: vintage cougar lamp; right: nesting dolls and lead figurines that her grandfather made the mold for.


“A collection of objects in tiny jars that I have created over the years!”


left: vintage book collection and shoe mold; right: her parents in the early 70s.


“Books, books..we can’t get enough. I’m obsessed with photography books (obviously)! The vintage cameras were my grandfather’s.”


“I swear I wear that vintage leopard scrarf almost every day. Ted got the alligator head on tour somewhere. Bracelet is FP!”



“The dining room table is vintage, bought in Brooklyn. Chairs are antiques from Anthropologie and the little chair covers we bought in Joshua Tree, where Ted and I fell in love!”



what a gorgeous home… thanks for letting us take a look around!

I felt like they were showing my home. Wow!! I even have the alligator head and the Haeger Pottery glossy puma sculpture. Amazing items and congratulations on making a house; a home.

fp naomi -April 19, 2011, 2:16PM

One of our designers actually sources them all in India by going around to markets and such. Sorry I can’t be more helpful!
