When Amber Lestrange Mosier and Cary Mosier first toured this dreary house in Laurel Canyon, they only had to look up to see its potential. "It was very dark and dingy, but it had these beautiful exposed beams on the ground floor ceiling," remembers Amber. The house had originally been built in 1958, but ensuing years and owners had created a "mishmash of seventies and eighties" styles throughout, says Amber. "The ground floor was the original dwelling. And then I think 10 to 15 years later, they put on the top level, but they didn't stay in the original design brief."
