Film producer Lyndall Hobbs turned her Spanish-style home in the Hollywood Hills into an industrial-tinged, midcentury-flavored, thoroughly unconventional retreat. Here in the backyard, Balinese umbrellas from Koan Collection on Melrose Avenue lend color to her deck, newly expanded so guests of her frequent summer parties have more room to take in the panoramic Valley view. I wanted these black river pebbles to ring the pool but realized only later how difficult it is to keep them clean, she says. The water leaves marks on them, but you live and you learn.
