Commune, LA

A brief perusal of the March issue of Architectural Digest, the first under the helm of the magazine's newest editor in chief, Margaret Russell, was enough to convince me to subscribe.  There were so many truly amazing interiors. My favorite, was by the Los Angelos design collective, Commune.  Wouldn't living in these spaces be just like inhabiting one of Tom Ford's sexiest ad campaigns?  Just the type of aspirational escapism I look for in a shelter magazine...

  26. wow, very Tom Ford indeed! right about now, as i've mentioned to my significant other.....i need to get away for a few days before i go mad from the winter. LA would be a fine choice! thanks for sharing, i'll HAVE to pick up their new issue soon ;)

    ReplyDelete
  27. It would be the perfect backdrop for an independent film, perhaps a about a couple who rents this place to reignite their long lost flame, only not to be able to make that happen instead secrets are revealed...hmm I have way too much imagination..

    ReplyDelete
  28. Wow these look fantastic! I love the sun beds by the pool in the first one

  31. I could really use a little retreat into any one of these images. I think I'd come out a better person.

    Now you've got me thinking seriously about picking up AD again.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love the organic feel of this.. it's like living in a nature spa. I'm especially drawn to that fireplace and the skylight!

    Also would like to thank you for being such a great support when I was struggling, getting no feedback at my blog. You were truly one of those whom made me go on with it, not letting me give up and the outcome is beyond words. I´m so grateful, THANK YOU Sue for helping me out!
    Happy new week!

  44. I am in LOVE with commune. They were recently in House Beautiful as well - which seems a little off their track, but it was one of the principal's houses. They have such a great style and cool concept for a firm.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Geesus, this looks like the house in "A Single Man" doesn't it? Gotta grab the new AD this afternoon. Have a lovely week, Sue (did you enter our giveaway?).

    ReplyDelete
  46. This needs to be my next home.
