Home Lust: Airy Mexican Abode in Echo Park

Yet another LA home I can't get enough of. I think I might have grown up on the wrong coast....

By now, you may see a theme emerging in the interiors I most love: white walls, airy spaces, bright textiles, eclectic furniture... And despite being very much anchored on the East coast growing up, I seem to have a real affinity for West Coast style — probably due in part to the climate and indoor/outdoor feel in many of my favorite spaces.

This home definitely doesn't disappoint. I remember stumbling upon this house tour on Apartment Therapy not long after discovering the site and falling in love. Those home tours can be quite addictive ;) This "Cultured Casa" (dubbed as such by AP) is owned by shoe designer and hairdresser Beatrice Valenzuela and Ramsey Conder and is situated in LA's Echo Park neighborhood. Beatrice grew up in Mexico and I adore all the vibrant Mexican textiles she displays throughout the house (not to mention the many touches of turquoise!). 

And I also love how lived-in and loved this home feels, and the obvious emphasis on a "connection with the outdoors and imagining what it would be like living in a foreign countryside" —  the owner's inspiration, as stated on AP. Simple curtains, lovely textiles, ceramic wares throughout, wood details, and lots of greenery... me encanta.

Be sure to check out the original feature for more pictures and details!


  1. Kim, what a beautiful home--it makes me homesick for LA, where I grew up! I love all the textiles, especially that lion one. I want to cover all my walls in the cool things we brought home from Morocco. My house style also leans towards airy with a lot of natural details. Stopping by to say hello from Friends Around the World :)
