A favorite era
Walking into the 1920s West Hollywood bungalow owned by Heather Taylor and Alex de Cordoba, you’re entering a home filled
not with Jazz Age glamour or sturdy Craftsman charm, but with the spirit of an era not universally beloved by those who lived
through it: the 1970s.
Maybe it helps that the 30-something couple view those years with the affectionate nostalgia of early childhood. “Stylistically, it’s one of my favorite decades,” says Heather, who co-owns an art gallery (taylordecordoba.com) with Alex and designed their home’s interiors. “I love the films, the fashion, and the look of the whole era—those warm, earthy, funky combinations of colors and shapes, the handcrafted vibe.”
And the house demonstrates how the best principles of that time—mixing old with new, heirloom with handmade, patterns with more patterns—can look just as fresh today.
