Patio Covers can be Cool Too….

 We have a mid century home coming up for sale in Los Feliz and our sellers wanted us to give the yard a redesign with a cool looking patio cover. So we set to task finding the right look that complimented the home and that it made a statement in its own right. The point of the project was to bring focus to an area that had been somewhat neglected. We searched high and low for inspiration to make sure we obsessively had the highest and best for our clients and then we found this little beauty in one of the magazines and books we were searching through. It possesses EXACTLY the right amount of Mid Century authenticity with its lines and horizontal motifs, it brings a sexiness to the yard that was desired and finally, YES once we penciled it out it fits into budget YEAH! So she will be built and will be inspired by this blessed photo and we are all convinced it will be a roaring success. Hopefully so will the buyers!

Saloma boldly proclaims who she is with just a hint of rebellious teenager and a potent thimble of attitude. Not one to blend in Saloma “struts” her stuff with the confidence of an Amercian Idol contestant infusing more than a hint of the Baleric Islands and the palpable atmosphere of the Spanish isles to boot. Chillin’ at the the pool you almost feel like you could snap your fingers and a barely clad server would whip up your blended desires in an Ibiza minute. Not such as stretch as the owners are both from Europe and have managed to transplant their authentic vibe in a manner the same as a heart surgeon with his scalpal as do they with their taste.

As the light changes into the golden afternoon glow so does she, now playfully wrapping you in a softer side and with a downward dog breathe out connotation.  Open plan bliss with care and attention going into each corner of the home making Saloma your own personal national geographic volume. Make your pals gawk and ease into the groove as you sip on the perfectly chilled Pinot. Where are we again, oh yeah LA, that’s right, at Saloma she sends you to wherever you want to go with ‘blissed out’ state of mind as she she gives you a wink and a nod as she whispers – de nada!
