    This past October I had the privilege of meeting the dynamic duo Meg and Christos Joannides. Christos is the founding principal of Flat 6 Concepts, a branding and marketing agency that caters exclusively to interior designers, furniture designers, architects, photographers and artists. Meg is the founder of MLK Studio based in Los Angeles.

    Meg’s firm specializes in large-scale renovations and new construction, as well as kitchen design and custom furniture for her projects. Prior to founding her own firm, Meg spent five years with Hugo Boss, Inc., at the company’s New York City headquarters as Vice President of Store Planning and Visual Merchandising. She also collaborated on the concept, planning, and execution of Hugo Boss’s unique 40,000-square-foot corporate offices and showrooms in Chelsea.

    Meg recently sent me photos of an amazing home she designed in the beautiful Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles. “It was a dream project for great clients with lots of style,” she confessed. Meg undertook the three-year project with acclaimed architect Hagy Belzberg. Again, much like the Homewood house I featured last week, this home inspires a sense of order, calm and peace. And, on a grey winter’s day in Scotland, I would love to spend a few days in this wonderful light-filled home.

      What an amazing home!
      Love the ceiling height and the dynamic spaces. All those horizontal lines in the features.. sigh..

      Brilliant pick.

      I love all those little overhead lights in the living room. I bet they cost a fortune, but I wonder if somewhere has a version for the regular peeps? I bet ikea has something! I'm seriously going to try to find some! Gorgeous!

      They select the art with a curator's eye. Incredible, quiet yet strong.

      I absolutely love this space. Oh, to live in something so chic and cool. My brood couldn't keep it in such fine condition I'm afraid to say. I'm doing an entire week of fabulous white images next week so stop by if the days are still grey there. It will be a lift for us all I hope. We aren't accustomed to the bitter cold we have had here for weeks. Spring come please!

      I totally feel your pain! I grew up in Florida and now live in England. I've noticed in the last year that I'm drawn to pictures of rooms with lots of windows and natural light. Hang in there and thanks for the lovely post and sunny pics.

      This looks like what I would describe as my own Hotel California, with the exception that nobody could get me to leave!
