    Default A Hollywood Hills remodel

    By Alexandria Abramian Mott


    ( Brian Vander Brug / Los Angeles Times ) Claire Stansfield, co-founder of the high-end T-shirt company C&C California, bought a traditional English country-style house in the Hollywood Hills and set out to remodel it for her family. The project was a delicate balancing act: Keep the traditional elegance, but update it for a modern family. Keep the coziness, but open up the floor plan. Stansfield and her husband, Speaks, owner of Hollywood club Den, called in the architecture firm Marmol Radziner to update the 1920 Robert Byrd-designed house. Today the exterior looks much as it always has. Even the trumpet vine survived the renovation, completed in 2008. But inside, visitors are greeted with some surprises ...

    That bedroom is really dark-like suicide inducing dark.

    Overall I like the bones, the exterior shot, and the view shot.

    I would take it in an instant of course. The things I do not care for decor wise could be easily changed.

    What's with the damn bedroom? The space in there is great, but all that furniture makes it look like a dollhouse. That sofa doesn't belong in there - I fully expect to see "Edith Ann" in there, with her feet barely dangling over the edge.

    That struck me,too. Very odd. This place has a great view.

    The place has some potential with a little more remodeling. Love the bathroom and the view.

    I don't like the cabinets in the kitchen and have never been a fan of wood floors in a kitchen, don't ask me why.

    The view is the only redeeming quality if you can put the smog out of your mind.
