649 West Adams Blvd., Los Angeles, CA. c. 1923

". . . located in the heart of the most fashionable district of Los Angeles, and it is made of red brick and tan plaster. Stained glass windows add to the warmth of the color scheme and -- incidentally -- to the old world appearance of the dwelling place."

"Probably the world's most exquisite bedroom. Indirect lighting and everything. The walls are tinted in orchid and green, and the furniture is hand-painted in pale shades of orchid that exactly match the walls. The draperies are of orchid and green taffeta and the rug is a delicate gray velvet."
