Our Editorial Director Just Curated the Vintage Décor Collection of Your Dreams


Stephen Busken

Since joining the MyDomaine team nearly three years ago after relocating to L.A. from Australia, Sacha Strebe has been infusing the site with her elevated aesthetic and keen eye for beautiful design at all price points. Serving as the brand's editorial director, she's quickly become a fixture in the Southern California city's thriving design community, bringing her own fresh perspective to the table of tastemakers and creatives keeping things interesting in the industry. Kicking off the New Year, Strebe co-hosted a special lunch with Anna Brockway, the co-founder of online vintage marketplace Chairish, to celebrate this inspiring group of design leaders. In addition to co-hosting the intimate lunch at Spartina on Melrose, Strebe was called upon to curate a special collection of all her favorite vintage pieces from Chairish, described as a monochrome collection showcasing the high impact of a single shade.

"I have stuck to an all-black wardrobe with hints of white, gray, and neutral for almost a decade now, and so naturally, this aesthetic has followed through into my interior choices too," explains Strebe of her monochrome leanings. "This tonal palette doesn't subscribe to trends, making it a cost-effective choice because you'll never tire of it." Creating an understated—though no less striking—foundation allows one to freshen up a look with seasonal pieces or bolder elements. "You can still play with trends; just ensure the foundation is fairly neutral," Strebe advises. "Then you can add any color or metal on top, and it won't throw off the balance, because it keeps everything grounded."

As she tells us, Strebe's favorite pieces to coordinate for a monochrome look are a vintage designer sofa—"I love the clean lines of Danish design either in black leather or an ecru hue"—a timeless timber table "to add warmth to the color-averse space," and a textured area rug "to anchor it all." To finish off a room, Strebe notes that "a hint of metallic always brightens it up a little too, either as a pendant light or in your decorative accents."
