thank you kishani perera

i'm all about being thankful this week. 2009 has been a great year; i started writing raenovate and found my creative outlet. i'm so very thankful for the fabulous designers and architects that send me stories and photos of their work. without them i would have no material.
today my big thank you goes out to kishani perera interior design. she recently wrapped up the redesign of 1920's spanish home in the beverly center area of los angeles. the home was full of charm but in a state of disrepair. with loads of TLC perera transformed the residence; she updated the bathrooms and refurbished the brick fireplace, vintage hardwood floors, and oh-so-quaint built-ins.
the decor is inspired by the home owner's favorite retreat, the parker palm springs, and his globe trotting lifestyle. by incorporating his trinkets from around the world and mixing in several craigslist, ebay, and vintage finds, his home exudes warmth and modern eclecticism. thank you, thank you, thank you!

i'd especially like to thank rebecca johnson of kishani perera interior design for taking the time to send me the goods for this before + after. i'd also like to credit jean randazzo for shooting the stunning afters.
