Designers Karen Vidal and husband Guy, right, turned a dreary Spanish-style four-plex in Silver Lake into a whimsical single-family residence now owned by Edward Kelleher, left. Its easy to call it a Moroccan fantasy, but really its more than that, Karen Vidal says, adding that authenticity wasnt the goal. The Vidals didnt want to replicate a particular place, culture or look, but rather create their own world an imagined retreat unlike any other. Here, a striped stairwell serves as transition from the public living areas on the first floor to the more private quarters on the second floor.
