Third Time Is A Charm

I know, I know, my seemingly regular posts about designer Mark D. Sikes start to sound like an obsession (lol) but I take solace in knowing that I’m not the only one (I wrote about his work here, here, here and here) 🙂 Plus, what some people might view as an obsession, I like to see as a healthy admiration of a self-made interior designer, whose design aesthetic is a most beautiful mix of East Coast traditional meeting the casual, easy-breezy California living. The perfect blend!

Mark’s home has been published twice in shelter magazines such as House Beautiful and Veranda, and recently One Kings Lane paid a visit to his lovely Hollywood Hills home and published new photos of its interiors. Some that have never been published before, which justifies today’s post- third time is a charm.

The architecture of the house is Spanish colonial with a strong indoor-outdoor connection that is so typical to Southern Californian homes. The interiors are decorated with some of Mark’s favorite things: chinoiserie furniture pieces, blue and white porcelain and Gracie wallpaper, leather accents, touches of leopard and black, layered natural fiber rugs, vintage dhurries and rattan chairs. So many different textures and design elements come together seamlessly to create one of the most beautiful homes in the country.
