Steal This Look: A Band of Outsiders' Home in Silver Lake, California

Issue 88 · Low-Key Fashion · September 3, 2013

When we first saw the Silver Lake, LA, home of Nicole Cari, the Senior Marketing Director at Band of Outsiders, we admired the thoughtful mix of antique midcentury furniture with textiles and accessories sourced from some of our favorite LA design resources.

Having taken over the home from previous owners Jed Lind and Jessica de Ruiter, Cari has styled her home (patio and pool included) to accommodate her frequent guests. Her own site, Nicole Cari, details the dinner parties, baby showers, and weddings she both attends and hosts (party-throwing is her side passion). For more of her home, go to Refinery29.
