Design Crush… a house in the hills

I have a blog crush on Sarah’s very fabulous blog a house in the hills, so I was excited to see her and her husband’s home on Design Sponge!  Check it out!

Photographers Lou Mora and Sarah Yates moved into this Los Angeles home with their two dogs, Ruca and Eleanor, just over a year ago. They’ve managed to create a little haven from the craziness of the city — at night they can even hear owls and coyotes. As photographers, their work takes them all over the world. Lou specializes in environmental portraits and lifestyle photography, while Sarah is a wedding photographer and founder of the wedding photography collective Birds of a Feather. But when they’re home, they love to walk the dogs, cook and entertain (all of which, Sarah writes about on her home blog, A House in the Hills) so it was important that their house feel cozy, warm and welcoming.

The table is reclaimed wood on metal legs, the yellow Eames chairs were an eBay steal and the metal wire chairs are from CB2. The chandelier is Patrick Townsend 

She found this womb chair at a flea market! So jealous…

The desks are from Pottery Barn, the rug was a sale find at Anthropologie, the giant framed print is Shepard Fairey and a gift from a client.

These shelves are old wine boxes that her husband nailed together to create shelves. Genius.

Their precious pup…
