Outbuilding of the Week: A Study in Black by LA Designer Alexandra Angle

September 19, 2014

Los Angeles-based designer Alexandra Angle worked in event design and wrote an entertaining guide with her husband, Eliot, called Cocktail Parties with a Twist, before setting up her interior design practice. For this Los Feliz guesthouse, she combined midcentury Scandinavian pieces with a Southern California palette. To see more of the firm’s work, go to Alexandra Angle Interior Design.
