One of the things I love about our Silver Lake community is the freedom and joy that is often expressed in the decoration of our homes. If you’re in the area, you won’t be able to miss this simple ranch house (on the west side of Micheltorena Street, South of Marathon). The owner has taken great care to embellish every available surface with rich shades of cobalt blue and terra cotta, painted and glazed in mosaic patterns and symbols. A feast for the eyes.

I was delighted to read Vincent Brook’s article in the August 20078 Edition of the Los Feliz Ledger describing Lea Lim’s ‘House of Art’ a ‘domestic masterpiece…how every flowering shrub, every mosaic tile, every filigreed staircase, every painted mural, roof beam, piece of furniture, and canvas (inside and out) fix together in shimmering and transcendent harmony.’ 

The House of Art is located at 1303 Micheltorena Street.
