A fabulous mid-century modern home in Los Angeles

This a-ma-zing Los Angeles Home of stylist Jessica De Ruiter was shot by Pia Ulin for Kinfolk Home - interiors for slow living. How apt. I could do just that in this space - starting with the pool! At first I was struck by the fabulous architecture (the home was built in 1953), and then I peeped inside and fell in love with the decor too.  Formerly an artist's home and studio, the family have adapted the Silver-Lake home to their needs but kept many of the original features. I love the earthy tones and soft textures and will you just look at that built in sofa, nook, and storage as well as the classic mid-century pieces? What a truly inspiring space...

This is such a dream space. I could absolutely live 'slow' here - could you?!

A few items I know and love: Safari chair. Pick up original mid-century chairs at Live Auctioneers. Houseology sells super soft neutral toned blankets like these. White sheepskin rugs/ throws.

Even though I have a tiny garden I still squirrel away lots of swimming pool inspiration here. For that day when... 

More fabulous mid-century inspired homes include a Scandinavian home, a space in Berlin and a Gothenburg apartment. Got to love this style?!

Have a lovely day!


  1. Beautiful interior, I love the paintings.

  2. Oj så fint! Jag skulle verkligen inte tacka nej till att ha en sådan bokhylla i plywood hemma!!!

  3. Gorgeous! I love the mix of white, black, and wooden decor. It's an amazing combo!

  4. Stunning. Each photo is beautiful! I feel calmer just looking at the space. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Any chance you know the indoor plant next to the chair with the stack of blankets?

  6. The wooden details give such a nice warm feel to the home... All white could be a bit stark sometimes...

  7. Was this house used in the movie Hanging Up with Meg Ryan and Walter Matthieu? Looks familiar! Gorgeous!
