sneak peek: andrea bricco

by anne

Photographer Andrea Bricco grew up in small-town Wisconsin, but these days, she calls the fashion district of downtown Los Angeles home. With a love of Danish designs, Andrea calls her style “modern vintage,” with clean pops of color and a bit of grit thrown in. Despite being a loft, her space is not huge, and the secret to decorating it has been finding pieces that are comfortable without being oversized or overpowering the room. The only thing lacking is more wall space for her love of art! Recently Andrea has been challenging herself with personal projects that make her see in new ways, and her professional work has taken her to Alaska, photographing fishermen, and to Mexico, shooting tequila distilleries, which you can check out on her blog. Thanks, Andrea! — Anne

Image above: Joe Sorren is the artist shown here. My favorite pieces are ones that make me feel a little uncomfortable when I look at them, like something is just a little off. I believe the paint color here is called “New Penny.” I feel energized waking up in this corner.

Image above: This is a Wegner Jalk Eames vintage teak rocking chair, found by the wonderful people at OC Modern. Every chair should be a rocking chair. I picked up the pillows at a handmade boutique shop in Alaska.

See more of Andrea’s loft after the jump!

Image above: Notice the projector on the ceiling. It’s a great way to save space and avoid clutter in a loft. Besides, watching the Golden Girls on a big screen is pretty amazing.

Image above: Gastronomica is one of my favorite magazines. Food is not just for eating.

Image above: The kitchen is one of my favorite places to be. I love the long, wide countertops, and it’s a fun space to be creative. A handmade stuffed turkey lives above the cupboards. My sister found him for me at a craft show.

Image above: I bought this piece during a downtown Los Angeles artwalk one night. The artist’s name is Patrick Haemmerlein. Some of my favorite things have been purchased without 5 minutes of thought. I think art should one of those things — if it speaks to you that quickly, I say don’t question it.

Image above: I love the hints of color on my rooftop. Sitting up here at night with a glass of wine is actually a very quiet setting and a great time for reflection and relaxation.

Image above: Downtown Los Angeles looks very cheery from these angles.
