deeply cool silverlake/echo park home

Silverlake/Echo Park is an area of LA that is near and dear to our hearts. And Rachel and I just had the opportunity to stage the sweetest flip house at 1418 Coronado Terrace in the sweetest Silverlake/Echo Park neighborhood. 

We staged this home using a lot of vintage and Mid Century Modern pieces from our collection — along with some vintage finds we sourced specifically for this staging. It makes you just want to move right in, doesn’t it? Photography by Michael Hillman.

Come on in. Let us show you around.

The living room features a kilim rug, a modern sofa, an antique Middle Eastern Druze chest, a vintage deacon’s bench, old oil paintings, a handmade vintage driftwood lamp, ethnic textile and faux fur pillows and a yellow Mid Century Modern chair.

The dining room is lit by a modern pendant light over an IKEA DOCKSTA table with three Tolix chairs and one bentwood chair with graphic B&W upholstery. Simple Heath-style stoneware, wood bowls and a trio of vases hold court atop the table.

A view into the kitchen, which was remodeled in a tasteful gray, taupe and white color scheme. We added earthy, vintage touches like African baskets on the wall, a wicker-wrapped demijohn and wooden utensils.

Details in the kitchen include a modern lamp and a Charley Harper bird print.

A vintage food scale and an open cookbook invite a culinary adventure.

The master bedroom wears a soft palette of taupe, dark brown and bright white. A vintage Indian shawl lays across the foot of the bed and a flokati rug warms the feet below. A simple polished nickel floor lamp and a glass lamp atop a teepee base Mid Century Modern table flank the bed. Another of the bentwood chairs occupies a corner. The walls needed no more than a couple of vividly colored vintage oil paintings.

The guest bedroom is bathed in white with linen curtains, an all-white bed with a challis shawl and vintage orange pillows. A mock fur rug, Mid Century Modern lamp and bedside table complete the scene. On the walls, a quirky mix of original art.

Guest bedroom detail shows the vintage deer figurine, alarm clock and art.

We placed vintage Jack’s Sugar Shack posters in the hallway, attached to the wall with metal clamps.

The bathroom is a study in gray and white with a minimalist and naturalistic style.

The den, off the master bedroom, is a true dude-cave complete with a rough plywood desk on sawhorse legs, an Eames molded plastic chair, a trio of globes, a lounge area complete with a Moroccan tray table, knitted pouf, Indian pillows and a starburst mirror.

We found a vintage 1962 newspaper for the desktop.

The room reflected in the starburst mirror.

A few bright colors are all it takes to show the lounging opportunities on the back patio.
