COVID-19 could have curbed inside designer Linda Engler’s solution-sourcing outings to Los Angeles. But as it turns out, the time to keep at property could not have been greater. California was on her intellect every single action of the way as she remodeled the 1956 Edina rambler she shares with her partner, Dave. “I’ve always been intrigued by the architecture, the landscape, the color palettes, and the product use of the West,” Engler suggests. “It’s much more peaceful and much more organic and natural, with much more fashionable forms. It’s much more me.”
The seem can take form in the home’s thoroughly clean-lined envelope, which the designer stuffed with temperament and pops of color. “It’s midcentury, but it’s obtained my riff on it,” Engler suggests. That riff includes a pair of daring orange desk lamps identified at Retro Wanderlust in Hopkins a decade in the past. “If my dwelling had been on fireplace, I’d save my partner and pet and all those lamps,” she suggests.
Those people lamps could be a person-of-a-form, but Engler has plenty of other California-inspired style suggestions to share. Listed here are her top 5.
