Los Angeles, California
Design, Remodeling & Decorating by Erika Winters
Rebuilt and decorated.
The conditions in which a young couple were purchased this property was totally abandoned.
Draw from it the best use of space not to be monotonous or uncomfortable.
Basically we started from the concept of bringing in the garden and make this area to be an integral part of the house through a deck built with wasted poles.
The decor is contemporary but I must say restoring some items and furniture from the personal collection of the couple was important too.
I also looked specific antique furniture like the Vanity, by its narrowness contributed significantly as a functional element to the only one room.
For the couple was important: first the living room was not offhand, second to be able of seating down in front of a TV, reading a book or have a nice talk with friends and third, to have a sofa comfortable and convenient enough to use as a bed for guests.
I designed a pice to fit the space and with these three characteristics.
Today the small living room looks great.
The floor is a vintage purple and gray vinyl. I also used in the bathroom in shades of orange.
There are repetitive elements such as Carrara marble like kitchen cover and tables. Vintage vinyl, white tile Subway type and colors palet as plum, gray-green, white and orange, guides and sectioned the house into two parts. Starting with the plum in the kitchen including just the kitchen ceiling, it becomes gray-green, ending with warm colors like orange on the floor bathroom.
The small guest house is now fully live!!
