Consider the whimsy that frames the hearth in David Edward Byrd and Jolino Beserra's 1928 Spanish bungalow. Clothed in broken ceramics and found and treasured objects, the fireplace resembles an outsize toy. The swirled mosaic pattern and jumble of shiny fun make one suspect it's crowded with spirits. "In fact," says Beserra, "it is. " "We built the fireplace as our portrait," adds Beserra, who in 1997 bought the three-bedroom Silver Lake home with Byrd, his partner of 28 years.

You by the fireplace, your glass of whiskey Set on my mantelpiece, a little frisky As you are speaking of your long success And probing in my depths of idleness, Smooth talker, you, you Shakespeare of men's hearts, Now turned Catullus of the nether parts, I hear the offer you are making me, As crude and brutal as pure sex would be Without the love that should attend it.
