The Barn and the Lantern
Edgar Lyall, a television writer, and Elizabeth Wise, a Lifetime network executive, bought a 1,000-square-foot 1941 prewar bungalow in Studio City, California, that they quickly grew very fond of, but after living in it for several years and becoming intimately acquainted with how the house functioned, the couple felt that they needed to gain some space and light. Lyall says the design concept for an addition was clear: “We had this old 1940s black rotary-dial phone we kept on this funky, modern white spool table. We wanted an addition that would work like that: vintage and modern elements coexisting together. That was really our starting point.”
