Worth a Look: Mae Brunken's Beachwood Canyon Home

I saw this in the Los Angeles Times, here.

It looks like Mae Brunken is going to be on my radar from now on. You can tell just by looking at her: talented.

She bought this 1927 Spanish Colonial house in Beachwood Canyon, and decided to fix 'er up a little.

Nice, huh?


I especially like the bathroom! Such drama.

(Sorry about the lack of verbage....but I am off to the dentist....joy.)

To read the whole thing and see more pictures of this "chic girl and her house" click on over HERE. And to see her Interior Design Talents click HERE (quite a cool site!).

I was trying to 'find' a word to sum the post up and you got it perfect...drama. She has great flair and the mediterrean and desert/middle eastern blend is fun. The gold camel on the hearth is a hoot!

I love her bold use of color. The interior makes sense with the exterior, they are in harmony with one another.

So refreshing with the touches of pink in everyroom.

Well Katie, I am a tad surprised for once at your choice! Mae B's Hollywood house for me is terribly amatuerish and frought with cliches, and all those posters just have to go! Would like to see it again without them. I must agree with your praise of the bathroom, quite stunning and glamorous! I also admire the upper entry ceiling, quite beautifully rendered. The area rug below it? That's another story!

Hi all! And thanks for all of the comments. Always lively!

Hello Gaj. I think there are things to appreciate here (especially that bathroom!) I posted the rooms I liked the best. I do have to agree with you, I was not bowled over witht the movie posters. But if you check out her website, there are projects there that merit a look or two.

My husband has always wanted to move us out to South CA. For that house I would gladly become the Countess of LA County!

Seriously, that bathroom is amazing.

I literally watched this movie again about a month ago and was studying this house, so it was awesome to see it "in person".
