Take a Lap

It's summertime in L.A. and it looks as though our overcast and drizzly skies are finally fading. Fittingly our imaginations turn to swimming pools and movie stars.

For your consideration, the July-August issue of Veranda magazine showcases Southern California designer Danielle Eber who turns out a pool-house worthy of reflection. Located in Holmby Hills, the Norman Style home needed an addition that would also serve as a private get-away for its residents.

Ms. Eber mixed traditional finishes with mid-century and french furnishings to create and cohesive yet slightly whimsical space. Take a peak and see if this enchanting addition doesn't inspire you to put your suit on...or take it off entirely.

Above and below check out the Missoni wave patterned fabric on the vintage Maurice Pre chair from L.A. shop Downtown. Also notice that the black built-ins in the photo above are finished with cabinet doors and sconces mounted into the brick surround. While below things are still a work in process.

Concrete wave - also from Downtown.

Where does this idyllic path with roses, delphinium, foxglove and daisies lead?
Back to the pool I'm guessing.


I could live in the pool house, happily.
