Commune, LA

A brief perusal of the March issue of Architectural Digest, the first under the helm of the magazine’s newest editor in chief, Margaret Russell, was enough to convince me to subscribe.ย  There were so many truly amazing interiors. My favorite, was by the Los Angelos design collective, Commune.ย  Wouldn’t living in these spaces be just like inhabiting one of Tom Ford’s sexiest ad campaigns?ย  Just the type of aspirational escapism I look for in a shelter magazine…

  28. It would be the perfect backdrop for an independent film, perhaps a about a couple who rents this place to reignite their long lost flame, only not to be able to make that happen instead secrets are revealed…hmm I have way too much imagination..

    I could really use a little retreat into any one of these images. I think I'd come out a better person.

    Now you've got me thinking seriously about picking up AD again.

  45. I am in LOVE with commune. They were recently in House Beautiful as well – which seems a little off their track, but it was one of the principal's houses. They have such a great style and cool concept for a firm.
