My husband and I found our home in Los Angeles in a very magical and serendipitous way. I was pregnant and wanted to give birth in my native state of California so we were house hunting from across the country. My husband was bouncing back and forth between NYC and LA for work and happened to be in Los Angeles when the listing for our home appeared on the market. Unbeknownst to us, the house happened to belong to a friend of ours, making it all the more kismet. While I was only able to preview it over Facetime, we knew this was the home for us and moved in just six weeks before my due date.
The house was originally built in 1923 by the famous architect Paul Williams. It was lovingly restored a few years ago, which meant we only had to make simple cosmetic changes to make it ours. With my nesting hormones in full effect, we refinished all the floors to a beautiful matte gray and repainted all the walls with a fresh coat of Chantilly Lace from Benjamin Moore. I decided to furnish the entire home from scratch, and under the looming deadline of my due date, I called in for reinforcements from some amazingly talented designers and stylists to help finish everything before the baby’s arrival. Most of the furnishings can be found in my home collection erin fetherston x fragments identity.
