Home of the Week: From Mexico City to a West Hollywood backyard
Mexico City lies some 1,550 miles southeast of Los Angeles, but you’ll find a small taste of the vibrant capital in the backyard of this 1930s home in West Hollywood. Working with designer Roberto Sosa, the owner drew from time living in Mexico City when renovating the traditional two-story. Terra cotta planters, handwoven chairs and clay pottery crafted by Mexican artists dot the lush backyard, which was designed as a series of small outdoor rooms. Inside, there are modern updates in the kitchen and period tile work in the bathrooms.
