DIEM Opening Night Party


The annual DIEM event kicked off last week with an opening night party at the Phyllis Morris showroom in West Hollywood. It was great to see design friends in anticipation of the next day's symposium events.


At the opening night party, with (L-R): Christian May of Maison21, me, Sara of Decorative Carpets / Lulu & Georgia, Ryan Farber of the West Hollywood Design District, and his girlfriend Brooke of Brooke Mason Photography.

And having fun with the boys, selfies with Joel of Cote Jardin Antiques and Christian of Maison21.


It was also neat to be featured last week on the West Hollywood Design District blog for my recent Instagram takeover in anticpation for this year's DIEM event, which you can read about here.

Sheats Goldstein Residence, A John Lautner House


I recently had the opportunity to tour an iconic home, designed by famed architect John Lautner, and referred to as the Sheats Goldstein Residence. The house was built between 1961-1963 and sits atop Angelo View Drive in Los Angeles. The original home belonged to the Sheats family and was then purchased by James Goldstein in 1972. The house blends with the landscape in it's organic form merging indoor and outdoor living. A unique quality to the home are the "drinking skylights": the coffered ceiling living room is pierced by 750 mini skylights. The home uses cross ventilation for cooling; there is no air conditioning and the floors are radiant heated with copper pipes. Exterior covered pathways lead to the guest bedrooms and the master bedroom, hence the indoor/outdoor living. The home is currently undergoing expansion work (a club and office spaces on part of the property), which is being handled by Nicolson Architects, the chief architect who has been working on the property since 1994.

The front entrance / pathway.


The living room, toward the entry.


A fully glassed faced living room with views to the pool and the city of LA.

The living room juxtaposes the exterior.

The dining room and landscaped pathway beyond.


The master bedroom master piece: this is it from an exterior view.


And this it from the interior (i.e. bed facing!) view.


I was fortunate enough to get a shot in it.


Then there's the view from the master bathroom sink. Yes, SINK.


And the indoor/outdoor wraparound shower which leads to an open deck.


One last epic view from the tennis court.

Thank you to Architectural Digest and Cadillac for hosting us on an amazing tour. #DrivenByDesign

A Visit To Kohler, WI and Blogger Round Up

Last month I had the opportunity to attend the Kohler Bloggers Conference headquarted in Kohler, WI. We enjoyed two nights at the Kohler owned American Club Resort and got a behind the scenes factory tour in addition to visits to the Kohler Design Center and Kohler Communications offices.

The offices of Kohler Communications.


The chic lobby entrance at the Kohler Communications building.


Color, sinks, and faucets are all on display at the Kohler Communications headquarters.

Thought it would be fun to share some of the posts of the other bloggers that were also in attendance:


Paloma highlighted our factory tour.


Jeanne of Cozy Stylish Chic provided great coverage of the Kohler Design Center.

The McKinley "As Seen on Californication" House in Venice


Last month I attended an event at probably one of the most interesting architectually designed homes, quintessential of California living, in Venice, CA. The home is more noticably recognzied as being featured on the hit tv show Californication. The architect is David Hertz and it is also his home. The event was hosted by Adorne, makers of switch plates and wall plates, that offer a seamless minimal contemporary design, a perfect fit for the McKinley House.

I truly felt very "at home" here!


Beyond the entrance is a living room, with a secondary "sunken" family room area.


Adorne outlets and switch plates are featured in the entire home, for a very seamless look.


A stair detail I love!


The switch plates installed by LeGrand and Adorne.


A fun art gallery wall featuring children's artwork seen in an upstairs hallway.


In conjunction with the interior courtyard, comprised of indoor / outdoor living spaces, is an outdoor bathroom with a sink and shower. The outdoor areas also include a full kitchen and media room.

Outdoor dining and music during the event.


The poolside area is great for entertaining.
