It’s certainly no marvel that people are nevertheless captivated with Mark D. Sikes, and his home within the Hollywood Hills. When we first "met" Mark, it changed into through the pretty praised cowl feature of his domestic in a 2012 House Beautiful. Soon after he turned into designing for excessive end clients, and redid his domestic for a feature in Veranda. Now, the house has been redone for a third time within the area of seven years for a characteristic in AD, some thing I’m certain became a long time aim for the designer.

The new room is very specific from the old, even though lots of the furnishings was reused and repurposed from other regions of the residence. The couch with its ruffled skirt as an instance, became once used on the foot of the bed in the main bedroom. The floral settee in front of the large picture window became wrapped in leather, used both in the dining room in the first decor, and in the living room inside the 2d, paired with English roll arm chairs – one we see here upholstered to suit the couch.

New pieces in the space include very expensive, high-end Bonacina wicker chairs and ottoman, Galeries des Lampes floor lamps, a tuxedo/parsons coffee table from his own (now discontinued) line from Henredon, and bookcases that are exact copies of the late Oscar de la Renta’s home in Punta Cana. They’re even styled similarly.

Hundred of heaps of greenbacks went into the redecorate of the house, and whilst there are different rooms that saw large modifications, this publish is for the ones of you who asked about the living room in a look for less post. So we can stick to that!

Here it is again. And here we cross:

Above you will find very similar pieces to the ones in the AD photo. However, you may not discover the sofas. It’s hard to copy the sofa and chair. Nothing like that simply exists available on the market, and these were portions Mark had that had been customized to include the skirts. The closest element you may discover for short buy are slipcovers.

Frankly, having lived with each white slipcovered furnishings and white upholstered furnishings – I would urge you to take the slipcover route ANYWAY! Again, purchasing this room in all fairness clean if you’re inclined to ensure concessions – or when you have a big budget. There’s not anything honestly out of attain, due to the fact past the artwork over the fireside, there is nothing that hasn’t been mass produced. It’s a rely of budget, and definitely the pieces I’ve related above are in the scope if you’re trying to overhaul your space, or just upload a few pieces here and there.

And if you’re not ready to make the leap, but wish you could have a little laid back California in your home, I highly recommend the Pacific candle from Wax & Wane candles. Small batch soy candles that are hand-poured into mason jars, provide a glorious scent throughout your home. This one smells nothing like the smog and marijuana of LA air, more like the fresh ocean breeze in a northern California jasmine field. A new favorite of mine . Try it out!

That’s all folks! See you soon! Now Go SHOPPING!
