Home Tour: 'Organic modern' in the hills of Glendale

March 27, 2010 |  6:12 am

It's hard to imagine, but not too long ago this stunning, light-filled home with views out to the San Gabriel Mountains -- to slip into real-estate-agent speak -- suffered from pink plaid wallpaper in the kitchen and gold shag carpeting in the living room. But attorney Christophe Burusco saw beyond that and bought it up for just under $500,000 in 2001.

The above photo is just a taste of what he did to the house during years of careful restoration, creating an effect that his designer calls "organic modern," which incorporates grass cloth wallpaper, cork floor tiles and plenty of indoor-outdoor living space.
