Get the Look Decor: Antique Eclectic

Jan 15, 2012

by Christine Domanic handmade and vintage goods

This weekend’s Get the Look Decor is inspired by the incredible Los Angeles apartment designed by Jared Frank and Sam Jacober, the stylists, interior designers and art directors behind Topsy Design and the Etsy vintage shop of the same name.

The Mediterranean-style apartment complex was built in 1929 and was once called home by James Dean and Rock Hudson. Since this Silver Lake apartment is fully furnished, Jared uses the guest room as bait to lure East Coast friends to the Left Coast.

Describe your home decorating style.
Antique eclectic. Buying vintage is both a moral and aesthetic choice. We waste enough in this society; home is the one place you can control, so living in a more sustainable way is very important to me. However, this isn’t health food, it’s real food: vintage and antique objects made before the industrialization of home furnishings were constructed so much better than the contemporary alternatives. The organic materials of wood and metal last and can take damage without looking worse for wear. Old objects tell a story, and I love surrounding myself with things that have depth. I often think about my furniture’s past lives.

That said, the last thing I’m interested in is living in a home that’s like a museum dedicated to a particular period. I like to mix styles from different eras. When you do this, you find that pieces have underlying philosophies that make them go well together. In the kitchen nook, I have an Arts and Crafts chair for my military field table. Even though their makers’ backgrounds differ enormously, they were both intended to function with utilitarian simplicity and constructed from materials designed to last.

Did you decide to decorate in this style or was there an evolution to your decorating process?
There has definitely been an evolution to my decorating process. I used to be primarily attracted to simple, masculine objects, but over time I grew bored. I became inspired by nature, and my female partner Sam encouraged me to open up my personal style and bring in feminine, delicate, curvaceous, ornate objects. In the study there is a metal table with a Victorian wicker chair in front of it. I love how the curvy lines of the chair play against the hard ninety-degree angles of the table.

Where are your favorite places to shop for home items?
My favorite places to shop are the flea markets of Los Angeles; the big ones are Long Beach, Rosebowl, and PCC. However, these experiences can be overwhelming for the uninitiated, and it takes a trained eye to make off with the good stuff at the right price. I work as an interior decorator and personal shopper for those seeking vintage and antique pieces for their home. (For more information, contact me.)

What inspires you when it comes to decorating?
I am most inspired by the needs of the rooms and my lifestyle. It should be possible to both work and chill in every room of the house. I never want friends to come over and not know where to sit. I want my life to flow seamlessly from contemplation, to production, to play.

What is your favorite part about your home?
The southern-style deck that overlooks Sunset Drive. If Sunset was a river and not a street, I’d stay in this apartment forever.

Does your home hold any strong memories?
The strongest memories this home holds are those I share with my business partner, Sam. We moved here and decorated the home together. We’ve recently parted ways, but we still work together. This home still holds our love and our history. If it wasn’t for her, it wouldn’t look the way it does, and it’s a constant reminder of our enduring relationship.

    I absolutely ADORE the eclectic decor! And I completely agree; your home is your own personal nest and you can manipulate it however you please. There’s certainly more to decorating than aesthetics. It can represent endless amounts of values, ideals, and personal nostalgias. This home is rich with inspiration! I’d love to take my cup of tea over there for the morning! ;-)

    ah i love these features! I love super eclectic homes that always seem to come together somehow. I used to live right next to this place, now my love and I live in my favorite apt I've ever had in Toluca Lake just over the Hollywood hills. I think all of my creativity goes into my crafts and writing and acting and very little of it into being able to cleverly decorate my home. I need to start shopping at garage sales and antique stores and leave my beloved ikea behind. this is good inspiration!

    Love your thoughts on vintage-- the workmanship and quality inherent in older objects and the way in which decorating with vintage supports recycling and reduces waste. I also admire your sense of play--xing different styles and periods together. Your home is expressive and genuinely delightful! Thanks for sharing your home with us! Thanks for a wonderful feature Christine!

    i like the use of colour-darkish and interesting.american interiors can be quite heavy or dark, you have used sombre tones and with fine edging which lifts it and makes for an elegant, interesting interior.
