an eclectic little (big) house in los angeles

i saw this little house tour the other day over at design*sponge (a daily read) and there is something about it that is so eclectic, so artsy, and a little moody... that i fell in love with this house! i just had to share.

the owners are husband and wife, ramin shamshiri of commune, and donna langley who is a co-chair of universal pictures.

they tried to keep the spanish feel of the architecture throughout the home with little touches that stay true to the home as well as the eclectic couple, such as an all time favorite of mine... spanish tile!

my living room is a large rectangle with a fireplace right in the middle, just like this one... which makes it hard to arrange furniture sometimes. i like how they used the bench on one end to keep the room open when you walk in and not feel boxed in by the seating area.

more great tile in the kitchen that extends outside, designed by commune.

i am so in love with this yellow sofa. i want it. brings a nice dose of color as well as presence. i bet 6 or 7 people could fit on it!

the outdoor room off the kitchen isn't bad either... ahh to live in california :)

all images are from commune. you should check out the others in their portfolio... very talented design firm.
