home in Los Angeles

holiday in the {hollywood} hills

Did anyone catch the this month’s Lonny mag??

I just had to point out the awesome home of L.A. based designer Mark D. Sikes.   It’s insane how effortless a home can appear while remaining so refined in the smallest of details.  While you’re drooling, take note of all the natural elements that give the space a serene and earthy atmosphere.  Here’s a few of the highlights:

I’m loving the neutral, soothing palette.

How cute are these little white mini pumpkins for each place setting?!

This is such a welcoming and comfortable kitchen, especially with the seating area and built-in book storage in close proximity.

Tile + mirror = winning combo

Ahh so cozy.

Striped awning: I see you!!

Wow what gorgeous views!!  And the landscaping flows perfectly.
