    Default Wallpaper artist Alix Soubiran's L.A. home



    Wallpaper artist Alix Soubiran's L.A. home
    (Michael Robinson Chavez / Los Angeles Times) By Emily Young

    Parisian-born artist Alix Soubiran could live quite happily without a stick of furniture. "A chair can be wonderful, but walls are what you see all the time," she says. "To me, walls that create a story or a mood are the starting point." Soubiran's own wallpaper designs transformed a ramshackle 1923 duplex in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles into the charming home she shares with husband Joe Mauceri, a film and TV director and writer, and their infant daughter, Monica Moonshine. Pictured here: the dining room, where Soubiran's playful side comes out.

    is that a jackalope in the first picture? that's awesome. i want it.
    the rest of the decor isn't my style (though there are a couple of armchairs i want to poach) but the house itself is nice.

    I LOVE the big picture of Roland Orzabal! But that's it.

    I like the idea of wallpaper on the ceiling. Would not have thought to do that. Nice way to add texture without being too overt.

    I feel a seizure coming on.

    I have never liked wallpaper, no matter what the design. And this just reaffirms it for me.

    LOL! How can you tell that's Roland Orzabal?
