On the heights of Brentwood, a chic and popular district of Los Angeles, a Mid-Century style house is undergoing a transformation. Built in 1959 by architect Kenneth Lind, this single-storey building will be transformed thanks to interior designer Victoria Gillet. If at the beginning the project of the owners was to renovate only the kitchen, it will be completely different in the end. Little by little, the work is done, almost without realizing it. “As the design progressed, we kept adding and adding until we had transformed every inch of the house,” laughs the decorator. The new project is thus taking shape delicately. There is no question of betraying the original DNA of this Californian construction. But what the couple wants above all is to bring joy and lightness to the place. This involves, among other things, color. There is blue. Already present, it inspires the project. Then pink, orange and yellow complete this vitaminized palette. But here, no visual cacophony. These colors are mainly used on textiles, works of art and a few strong pieces of furniture. In order to enhance these colored flat areas, brass plays the part of the journey. A common thread, like a touch of sparkle, which knows how to make its way through the beautiful materials that Victoria Gillet loves so much. Wood, cement tiles, velvet… they all collide and respond to each other in an atmosphere between bohemian spirit and Provençal charm mixed with Japanese notes.
