While pinning to our new Pinterest board "Silverlake Style," I came across this picture from Elle Decor magazine. Nice, right?
The title of this Elle Decor spread is "Morrocco Moderne" and the residents of the featured home are an American couple who moved from a medina in Marrakech to the city's Art Deco district. They brought with them an aesthetic of French Flair.
What struck my fancy most about this picture was that it seems to sum up what every home in Silverlake currently looks like (or aspires to look like.) Like any well-designed room, this room has a distinct formula. Whether you live in Silverlake (the hippest neighborhood in the US) or the Art Deco district of Marrakech, you can recreate this fantastic look in your home with the help of Casa Victoria. Let's begin!
1. Pair of Club Chairs
Unfortunately, this pair of low back naugahyde club chairs were sold a while back, but it will give you an idea of what kind of chair to look for.
2. Brass and Glass Coffee Table
This 1970s round glass and brass coffee table may be short but it is most certainly sweet. What it lacks in height, it makes up for in sophistication. This table is still available!
3. Vintage Leather Sofa
This 1980s Italian sofa is a beautiful dark green full grain cow hide and is in excellent condition. It was hand crafted in Italy and has a slightly curved back. Still available!
4. Industrial Reading Lamp (or an Arc Lamp would work well too)
This 1970s adjustable chrome reading lamp has a pivoting arm that also extends out. The foot switch allows you to turn the lamp on without moving a finger, literally.
Are they royalty? Are they peasants? One will never know.
