Alan Silverstein, Vice President of All Los Angeles Painting Company, Inc. 310-470-9218, has studied historical home restoration and interior design for over 35 years. Silverstein has noticed and appreciated Los Angeles' architectural heritage since he was young.
Homes built in the earlier part of the last century had proper scale, balance and proportion. They were beautifully and elegantly made and outfitted; they radiate a sense of calm and history. It's a shame to see beautiful homes from the 1920's, 30's, 40's 50's and 60's visually ruined with poorly designed upgrades from the 70's, 80's, 90's and now. An historic house has a unique personality; it's beauty and grace come from it's being architecturally respected.
Alan Silverstein knows how to return a vintage house back to it's original charm. It is done by removing poorly done contemporary remodels and replacing them with original tile schemes in the bathrooms, original cabinet designs in kitchens, installing vintage antique light fixtures throughout corresponding to the years the house was built, finding and installing wheel-etched bathroom and vanity mirrors, replacing mismatched moldings with consistent moldings as they would have been installed originally, and many other details that return a house back to its original glory.
In Alan's over 35 years of work on vintage/historic homes, he has developed a long resource list where he has access to vintage items and period items appropriate to older homes. Understanding how important small details are is one of the secrets of restoring historic and vintage homes. We easily locate historic house parts and have many old home resources.
Silverstein's vintage home design efforts focus on restoring a home's natural beauty by utilizing existing architectural elements or finding and restoring salvage items that are appropriate to the time period of the house or finding new condition vintage items.
Alan has overseen restoration projects in Hancock Park, Westwood, Hollywood and Pasadena, California.
