I’ve been posting over at AT:LA, coverage of the 1.7 Ocean event. 1.7 Ocean is this new housing development in Costa Mesa, CA, and they recently had an event that brought together lots of local OC design/fashion businesses and the featured attraction were 4 showcase bungalows that were done by local interior designers. Inside one of them, by designer Andrew Virture of Andrew Virture Desgins, I spotted this fun little lamp “hack”. All the homes at 1.7 Ocean come with these Ikea FADO lamps, and Andrew added a little vintage flare to it. He placed a vintage double tiered lamp shade on top. I think it looks great and is a fun idea to customize a pretty basic shape. It worked well with the rest of his vintage/surf inspired decor. I’ll be posting a tour of the bungalow he designed later today… but check out this bungalow from designer Natalie Umbert, and this one from designer Mo Brias.
