HOME IN LA- Alexandra & Michael Misczynski

believe it or not there are sometimes these moments when you don’t know what to say or write because the pictures so perfectly tell the story. the story of Alexandra and Michael Misczynski’s, the husband and wife interior design duo behind Atelier am, LA home!

might i also add it’s not so easy to find new words that i haven’t already shared about one of my favorite interior design teams- i think this might be my third or fourth post featuring them and their work! what i can say is that Alexandra and Michael’s  LA home in the Hollywood Hills, actually not to far from my house, is one of my absolute favorites!

i always come back to them and this house in particular for many reasons, but mostly because of their unique ability to mix 16th, 17th and 18th century furniture and artifacts with very important art and luxurious textiles, however, done in a way that is inviting, comfortable, and authentic!

this is a special week for the blog, seems like the right time to feature one of my all time favorite homes- i could move right in and not change a thing! better yet, it so happens to be the home of one of my favorite design teams! right up the street- home in LA!
