In this series, Sebastian Mariscal designs a home in Venice, California, that brings the outside in. We track the project from start to finish with resident Michael Sylvester. Part 24, June 2013: Furniture and Accessories.

With construction and landscaping completed, it is time to start moving in the furnishings. We selected Delta Wright ASID, IIDA, LEED AP, Co-founder of Curated, to act as our Interior Designer. Delta and her team helped us to integrate our existing vintage furniture collection with additional selections. In this image the open-plan kitchen, dining and living room space on the ground floor open onto courtyards on both sides of the house.

This ceramic umbrella pot is from Kyouei Design in Japan. The clever design allows rainwater from an umbrella to drain into a plant pot at the base. It doesn't rain very much in Los Angeles so we used drought tolerant plants that can survive between drinks.
