Tomorrow is Today: An Architect’s Home.


I know I’m posting twice today-unbelievable! However, I had to post this home tour(spotted here).  This home belongs to an architect and no it’s not cold. In fact it’s quite the opposite. His name is Warren Techentin (his wife is Mimi Techentin) and they live in Los Feliz, California.  I think  his home is universally appealing and it is bursting at the seams with all of my favourites; colour, books, wallpaper, beautiful lighting, sexy furniture and I could go on and on…However, since I really should be getting some work done instead of posting, why don’t you just see for yourself?Smile.





















Très magnifique, no? XX

  9. An architect who is also a modern art lover, interesting. I am wondering one thing....what the heck is that blue box for at the bottom of the staircase? There under the tread?

  13. Delightful space. I love all the use of colour and yes it has a lot of warmth to it too. And the pool isn't too bad either. ;-) I just love looking at drool worthy homes. Lovely! xx veronika

  15. Stacey,

    Los Feliz sports some of the coolest homes you will ever find. Incredibly chic and laid back, yet just perfectly styled. Chef's parents inherited a small home in the hills there. It is nothing fancy like this and they just rent it out, but the neighbors have some unbelievably interesting abodes.

    Loved this!!

    xo,

    The island in the kitchen, complete with highchairs? I think my heart just melted.

  18. I really love the bathroom and the kitchen. The pink sofa, mixing traditional legs and and modern seating is beautiful!

  19. I love this house Stacey....actually I love that the photos were taken with reality left in.
    There are still high chairs in the shot, there is paperwork left on the bench, both the decorative mat and wipe your feet mat left at the front door and the scrubbing brush and fly swat left in the photos. Real living with style is my favourite.

  22. Oh sweeet Stacy, This is so, so MAGNIFIQUE INDEED! And I somehow missed your other post! I get up SO EARLY so I can capture everyone's new post for the day, but of course some people post while I am at work! I love that orange/honeysuckle settee against the bare white wall, and that kitchen...but those book cases with just a hint of aqua peeking out....OMG.

    Thank you for your kind words; remember being a teacher? Some days were just not good? I had a day like that yesterday....I need to start all over again TODAY!

    CIAO MA BELLE!! Anita

  27. Very cool modern house. Love all the bookcases of course! And the kitchen is fabulous as well as that very interesting branch light fixture!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Though its not my personal style...I really liked the vibe of the house, really well done, happy, cohesive and crisp. I loved the bookcases, nothing like an ultra tall bookcase to make a room. Very nicely done.

  29. They are masters and keeping the space looking calm and almost void of colour and yet there are amazing pops of colour everywhere. Don't tell anyone I said this but I actually like the pink sofa;)...Carol
