Exotic Touches
When designer Jennifer Dyer was tasked with restoring a 1940s Hollywood Regency home in Los Angeles, she sought to add modern glamour through simple, luxurious furnishings (March/April 2011). An unusually tall, Far Eastern-inspired lamp and two crane sculptures add international elan to the guest bedroom's sleek black-and-white dresser. Hanging, fringed lanterns are an unexpected and exotic touch that combines a Moroccan aesthetic with contemporary sensibilities.
