Eastside Property: Bring a big down payment and paint brush for this Silver Lake house

This “unconventional Spanish” (as opposed to emotional Spanish)”  at 1842 Edgecliffe Drive comes slathered in the bold colors that many Silver Lake home and store owners favored or experimented with during the last 20 years. But is time for Silver Lake to tone it down? That terracotta (or is it watermelon?) and green color scheme seems out of date as other homeowners adopt shades of tan, sage and gray, and formerly primary-colored storefronts – such as Rowena Chiropractic and the Coffee Table – have embraced neutral tones or closed down.  A check inside this three-bedroom home, listed for $899,000, reveals the owners were more conservative with their colors.


  1. Seems really weird to me that you’re suggesting someone conform to a neighborhood’s so called ‘color scheme’ after buying a home. If you’re going to shell out close to a million bucks on a house I say paint it polka dots if you like. What if my favorite color happens to be watermelon?

  2. Um, I don’t think the Coffee Table closed down due to having bright primary colors!

  3. Commenter reading comprehension and interpretation skills sorely lacking.

  4. What’s up with the recent hatchet jobs on unique looking homes in Silver Lake?

  5. $900k for THAT? New paint job or not…eeek.
