In LA’s Echo Park, architect Barbara Bestor designed a series of 18 small-lot housing projects, which have come to be known as Blackbirds. The beautifully-designed homes bear an edge of minimalism with a slight Nordic influence, imparting a defined contrast to the bohemian reserve of the surround. Interior designer Natalie Myers, of Veneer Designs, had the opportunity to redesign a two-bedroom Echo Park residence, in said community, and the result was truly something special.
Simplicity is key. This spartanly modern house in the hills of Echo Park was outfitted with the essential furnishings and touches of modern bohemian decor. The effect is maximum style for a bachelor in his first home. Nothing unnecessary was brought into the mix, with each item carefully considered to keep the architectural integrity of the spaces feeling light, clean, unfussy. Less is more.
