If These Walls Could Talk
The Interior Monologue of Ura Bode
I feel so empty. A home cannot live by modular, self-assembled furnishings alone.
Behold! An elixir to quell my existential angst: interior designer Isabelle Dahlin’s new Echo Park boutique, DeKor.
The well-edited blend of vintage finds, global curios, and custom furniture can perk up a gloomy domicile.
Hand-tufted organic cotton Chandra rugs will warm my cold, hard floorboards. My walls will no longer stand stark thanks to I-damast’s colorful hanging textiles and an array of artwork (antique etchings, Banksy and Diane Arbus prints, Diva Zappa mixed-media paintings).
Vintage pendant and ceramic lamps will light up my life. I’ll couch my abandonment issues in an elegant teak living room set by midcentury modern master Grete Jalk.
It’ll be dwell on earth.
DeKor, 2145 West Sunset Boulevard, at Mowhawk Street, Echo Park (213-375-7627 or dekorla.com). Prices start at $30.
