I’m honored to have my Los Angeles home in the March issue of Elle Decor (now on news stands). As the story points out, I wanted to utilize the contemporary backdrop of a high rise building with plate glass windows for my art and antique collection spanning 3 centuries and a lifetime of buying trips around the world.
As you can see the antique furnishings have simple straight lines corresponding with the liner contemporary architecture which illustrates how antiques can complement a modern aesthetic.
This project was a departure from my home in Laguna Beach (seen in the November 2014 issue of Architectural Digest) where the antiques found home in a more traditional English manor house environment.
The contrast of the two homes demonstrate the versatility of antiques. I Hope you enjoy the story.

It was a pleasure to work with the talented photographer Bjorn Wallander, and the legendary Robert Rufino Interiors Editor.
