Glamour Abodes

Duo extraordinaire Ron Woodson and Jaime Rummerfield were featured in Angeleno Interiors last month for their work in the home of Good Day L.A. reporter Suzanne Marques and her tv producer hubby Robert Dourisbourne. They took this smallish Laurel Canyon house and turned it into a glam retreat. Andrew Myers reports with photography by Angie Silvy.

The majority of the living room furniture was designed by Woodson and Rummerfield including the black and white cabinet, coffee table and green Maharam velvet armchairs. Hmm...those peacocks look familiar, see post below. I do love the Boxer dog statue, a nice twist to those ever present Greyhounds. I also love the canary urn vessel on the coffee table, it's such a nice pop of color. Wallpaper by Florence Broadhurst.

Could these too be more adorable? I just want to grab Ron Woodson and make him twirl me around and dip me while drinking a mint julep. Woodson's father was a Jazz musician and took him to the homes of Ella Fitzgerald and Doris Duke as a kid to accompany him on gigs. Woodson would develop a pension for design through these experiences. Jaime Rummerfield brings a girly aesthetic to his masculine sense of home. Woodson and Rummerfield painted the stair vestibule in Sherwin Williams Spa.

This is not only a great photo, it's a great mesh of kitchen meets dining area. A Saarinen Tulip table is complimented by Empiric vintage chairs and a Jonathan Adler Greek key rug. Speaking of Empiric, it is one of my favorite stores to drop in on. Annie has a great blog too, check out Relish Small Pleasures for more. The side bar cart is very Mad Men, no?

The bedroom is a mix of vibrant patterns including Robert Allen's Odyssey on the curtains and headboard. The couple also hosts an extensive and sensible art collection including Andy Warhol, Shag, and Tim Burton. Woodson and Rummerfield co-own the design firm W and R Design and are enjoying the launch of their recent book, High Style.
