This week's listing of Norwood Young's infamous "House of David" in Hancock Park reminds how much we love professional organizing the colorful spaces of Los Angeles.
Rumored to be the former house of Nat King Cole, L.A Curbed perhaps describes the house better than anyone can:
"The [House of David in Hancock Park] exists outside the normal boundaries of space, time, and interior decorating. There are fake dogs everywhere, the dining room furniture is invisible and hanging from the ceiling, and there are either oversized chairs in the foyer or the foyer is tiny. The house has seven bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and 19 David replicas on its front lawn. R&B singer Norwood Young has lived, decorated, and pissed off the neighbors on Muirfield Street since the nineties..."
L.A. is indeed a city of excess, big quirky houses chocked full of surprising treasures, movie locations, world-class architects and people breaking every rule in the book when it comes to aggressive collecting, designing and decorating. We are bound to client confidentiality but we can say it's an honor to not only take a peek at secret spaces but to curate each item and ensure collectibles can be displayed, cared for, or neatly stored for easy access-- and do our best to continue the "theme" of the house and to celebrate the life of our clients.
