L.A. Mid Century Dream Home

MCM Crush:  This eye-popping 1961 gem built by architect David Hyun, located in Los Angeles.  

“Mustard yellows, greens and oranges set the tone, and each additional pop of color matches perfectly. Every piece in the house is secondhand — nearly all bought at Southern California flea markets and swap meets. Vintage magazines rest on the tables and abstract-shaped mirrors adorn the walls. An old record player sits in the lounge next to dice-shaped ottomans and sunken chairs. Lava lamps, geometric shapes, and Hollywood memorabilia are constant surprises around each corner. It’s a bright one story “L” shaped home, with a pool glistening right outside the floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors. A cabana is quietly tucked away in the corner, large-leafed green plants grow high and cast shadows. Roy Orbison, Chuck Berry, and The Mamas and Papas ring loud through the home’s speaker system. This house is rare, stylish…. Inspiring.” – http://blog.freepeople.com/2015/06/peek-vintage-dream-home/?crlt.pid=camp.Yl1We48SpuW0

We ♥ the Pop Art of Doug Bale

From canvases to throw pillows, we are digging the Surreal, Colorful Pop Art of Doug Bale
Doug Bale: “My art is inspired by my personal meditation and modern spiritual archetypes. The art starts out digitally and has recently shown up on pillows, cubes and t-shirts. The faces are meant to be a “visual meditation” and hopefully hone in on the viewers imagination and personal visions.”
