PASADENA FLOYD MUELLER PERSONAL RESIDENCE

BEVERLY HILLS BRILLIANT MID CENTURY ARCHITECTURAL
We know the time capsule phrase gets bandied around a bit too much. But we think you'll agree, this Beverly Hills architectural home is quite the specimen. Original rugs, wall coverings and sculptures are ever present while perusing thru this home. We applaud the owners for perfecting the intersection of luxury and mid-century over the past 60 years. And, we can finally have that pink and green bathroom.

All this in the center of the city.
