Carefully designed for urbane modern living, this single-level West Hollywood condominium features two bedrooms and sun-drenched open-plan living and entertaining spaces. Tastefully remodeled, its 1,482-square-foot floor plan is replete with subdued organic hues—from white walls and stone surfaces to wood floors and kitchen cabinetry—that allow furnishings, art, and the southerly view to take center stage. The stylish Palm Terrace building offers a pool and spa, a recreation and fitness rooms, parking for two cars, and four additional spaces for guests.
Chic Chelsea Condominium
On the top two floors of the famous Brooks Van Horn condominium building, this impeccably designed residence exudes a sophisticated flair. Highlights include a bright, fluid living room, dining room, and lounge; an open cook’s kitchen; a skylit primary bedroom with custom closets and an elegant en suite bath; and an upper-level loft with one bedroom and bath and access to a 700-square-foot rooftop terrace. Throughout, neutral tones—often augmented by eye-catching patterns and textures—create a striking contrast with richly hued wood.
Stylish Southwestern Contemporary
Minutes from famed Canyon Road and Santa Fe’s historic downtown Plaza, this chic contemporary home is anchored by an open living room, dining room, and kitchen ideal for effortless living and entertaining. In addition to a breezy portal with a sweeping view of city lights, sunsets, and mountains, it offers two restful bedrooms and an office or third bedroom with its own outdoor space. Soothing natural tones—including surfaces of elegant Neolith sintered stone and white art walls—contribute to the undeniable sense of modern sophistication.
Enduring Easygoing Style
Perfectly sited on an elevated corner lot on one of the most desirable streets in Echo Park, this compelling three-bedroom midcentury modern home has been impressively updated. Light organic materials—including crisp, clean walls ideal for displaying art and blonde hardwood floors and cabinetry—contribute to its self-assured style. Covered and open-air outdoor spaces allow for enjoyment of Southern California’s sunny days and temperate nights. Across the yard, a freestanding 542-square-foot structure would make an ideal garage or studio.
