Las Orquideas Celebration & Preview

Merely minutes from the hustle and bustle of Hollywood Boulevard and nestled in the nearby foothills stands an impressive Spanish Revival compound known as Las Orquideas. The property evokes old Hollywood glamour, and on the evening of June 11th, that spirit was awakened by an exciting soirée. Guests were invited to tour several of the units immaculately restored by the design team of Howell + Padgett. Groovy tunes permeated the air as people gathered on the main patio, enjoying delicious small bites and craft cocktails. Others gravitated towards an upper level balcony, taking in the twilight city view. Las Orquideas is truly a unique and historic property; its combination of charming original details and elegant modern upgrades completely embody the deasy penner podley core tenet of home as art.
