Part of a charmed group of creatives who float between LA and NYC, Sophie Buhai is a former fashion designer (remember Vena Cava?) who lived in NYC for almost a decade. Not too long ago Buhai moved back to LA to launch Sophie Buhai , her new jewelry/home accessories line. Interesting fact: She designed some of the pieces during a residency at Villa Lena in Italy; "it was like an international art camp," she told Frederick Vercruysse. "Paradise!" Her Spanish-style 1932 bungalow in Silver Lake, which she shares with her husband, a lawyer, is furnished with finds from Palm Springs estate sales, as well as hand-me-downs from her parents and her own sculptural pieces. Join us for a tour. Above: The living room opens onto an outdoor patio. Photograph via Rip + Tan .
