BEAUTY: Interior--Dave DeMattei and Patrick Wade
Dave DeMattei and life partner Patrick Wade just took over the clothing company Lucky Brand as CEO and executive vice president/creative director respectively. But in order to do so, the couple had to move from Northern California to Los Angeles, where the brand is headquartered. They bought a five-bedroom, 5,000-square-foot Italianate home that was built in the 1920s and proceeded to renovate and furnish the home with objects and art they have acquired in their travels over their 25 years together. They did a spectacular job and Architectural Digest featured stunning photos of this beautifully appointed yet ultimately comfortable home. Take a look at how they managed to balance an effortless, casual, Southern California feeling with a stylish sense of elegance.
