LM Pagano's Hollywood home( Robert Gauthier / Los Angeles Times )
Paganos home was somewhat of a shambles when she bought it in 1994. Owned at one time by actress Deana Durbin, it was subsequently lived in by Lynda Carter during her stint as Wonder Woman and, still later, by Eric Stoltz. During the 1970s, she says, it was a hippie art colony.
The house doesn't feel like a typical designer's showcase. Pagano's floor lamps have elegant, torn lampshades. A portion of the ceiling is yet to be painted, and in one spot, an antique window frame, now housing a multi-paneled mirror, leans against a wall. The overall effect is broken-down charm and a celebration of imperfect beauty.
