I am so excited to give you a tour of my largest design project to date, Oeste, with my dear friend Yayo! Today we’re taking a look at the living room.
One of the main ideas behind Oeste was not only to be a place to stay and host events, but for photography and photoshoots. When it came to the design, we looked to one of Los Angeles’ most famous locations, the Philip Dixon house, so we wanted to make sure the spaces were really adaptive, and the living room became one of those spaces. It has fresh white walls and sleek concrete floors and, though simple, is still architectural and interesting. An example being the built-in couch/bench that’s inspired by the built-in furniture at the Philip Dixon house. We connected with Concrete Collaborative to install it in this lovely terrazzo and we really loved how it looked and felt so we ended up weaving it throughout the house because it’s an important part of Mexican design and architecture, which reflects Yayo’s heritage and the inspiration behind the home.
