Glenalbyn Drive

An aerie is described as “a house, fortress or the like, located high on a hill or mountain.” An art aerie would have to be a house high on a hill filled with art. That’s exactly what the house on Glenalbyn Drive in L.A.’s trendy Mt. Washington area became once we staged it.

Working with amazing canvases from local Eastside artists Carlos Nieto and Michael Rascon, we brought a Mid Century modern vibe and jolts of fresh color into this stunning architectural home with high vaulted ceilings and white gallery-ready walls.

Perched on the edge of a hill on the more rural side of Mt. Washington, the house on Glenalbyn proved the ideal venue for evocative art and modern furnishings.
