Kitchen confidential: Silver Lake artists piece together a colorful home

Mosaics are not readily recognized as a legitimate art form, Silver Lake artist Jolino Beserra says, largely "because you can go to the store and buy a little kit to make a mosaic pot."

Extremely wonderful entry, definitely useful information. Never considered I’d find the tips I need right here. I have been hunting everywhere in the internet for some time now and was starting to get discouraged. Luckily, I came onto your website and acquired exactly what I was browsing for.

I'd like to visit these gentlemen and photograph the house for my webpage, 'SILVER LAKE ARCHITECTURE"! Will someone please introduce me?
