A good friend of mine brought Mandy Moore’s home to my attention for great reasons. It’s mid-century style, views, natural sunlight, furniture choice and the array of color.
The home is on a hill in Pasadena with views of San Gabriel mountains/valley, was built in the 1950s and designed by Harold B. Zook.
Mandy and her Fiance Taylor enlisted the help of architect Emily Farnham, interior designer Sarah Sherman Samuel, and landscape designers Terremoto to help bring the home up-to-date, customizing it to their needs.
