Lovely Los Feliz

One of my favorite homes that was published in the old House & Garden magazine was this one in the Los Feliz area of Los Angeles that is owned by designer John Janik. The home was built in 1924 by the architect was A.F. Leicht who was prolific designer in the 1920’s in Los Angeles. I personally love the amazing arched windows and that great staircase I’ll try to add more details about it when I return but for now, I think the photos speak for themselves! Enjoy!

    It’s very serene looking, almost like a chapel! Maybe that is well needed in a city like Los Angeles:)

    I remember this “spread” so well!! Any idea who designed the chaise longue in the living room? Thanks for reminding me of this beauty. I do miss HG–it was the best–photos, descriptions, writing, layouts…..

    What a lovely home. It’s so calm and clean and it’s so refreshing. It’s almost reflective of its environments. I don’t know if a home like that would work in Atlanta…I’d love to try though.

    I think that lounge is OLY Studio. Very weird/cool how they draped and threaded the blanket through it. Kinda makes me think that the stylist didnt like the looks of it though!

    There is so much design diversity in LA – but this home has seamlessly woven classic, midcentury and modern into a cohesive canvas.
