9 Stylish LA Homes on Instagram
1. Sunset simulation via @clairethomas
This unique dining area at the Yucca Valley property comes care of Claire Thomas, who designed the stunning home around the movements of the sun. Arched doorways and built-in shelving work together with the sunset-hued palette to create an inviting getaway spot for groups of up to eight—yes, this beautiful home is available to rent on Airbnb.
2. Relaxed and light-filled via @kndlsargeant
In Kendall Sargeant’s Venice Beach pad, there are windows galore, hardwood floors, a mint green bathroom, and views over the trees. It is, in short, a perfect home base. The colour palette is muted and cosy, leaning heavily on sage green, classic oatmeal and white, with little touches of turmeric. It was these built-in shelves in the dining room that first caught Kendall's eye initially.
3. Colourful warehouse style via @punodostres
This delightful loft is basically a physical manifestation of both ilovecreatives and owner Puno Dostres' brain. It's filled with plants, pastels, 70s-inspired furniture, and a few vintage Milo Baughman gems — a style Puno refers to as “Danish Tropical”
4. Rustic minimalism via @michaelandpeter
Located in East LA's stylish Silver Lake neighbourhood, this incredible home was designed by Michael Breland and Peter Harper. It's a lesson in how restraint and simplicity in home décor can create the ultimate tranquility. The earthy palette mirrors the natural materials, and the brick tiling is the perfect foil for the city's famous heatwaves.
5. Postmodern luxe via @kellywearstler
Iconic interior designer Kelly Wearstler used an inspired combination of styles and eras in this California bungalow, with an Ettore Sottsass Ultrafragola mirror and clashing floor rugs adding a luxurious yet playful touch to the space, anchored by dramatic dark wood structural accents.
6. Unique and layered via @sacha.strebe
There’s a little bit of everything in Sacha Strebe’s Los Angeles home. The apartment, in the trendy neighbourhood of Silverlake in the city’s east, is a glorious mix of all of Strebe and her husband’s individual tastes. There’s a little California cool (Mid Century Modern chairs, crystals galore), a little of the relaxed, beachy Australian vibe (pale wood, lots of greenery), and there’s even a touch of Europe – courtesy of an antique painting in a stunning gilt frame, Diptyque candles and one big, show-stopping timber column in the bedroom.
7. Artist retreat via @jessalynbrooks
Jessalyn Brooks has lived in this warehouse for years. She has transformed the sprawling warehouse into a creative hub, both for her painting and artworks, and for her life.
Over the past decade, the space has undergone several major renovations, all courtesy of Brooks herself. “It was just raw studio space when I first moved in,” she recalls. “[I] built all the walls, all that stuff. I used to work at an old architectural wrecking yard when I first moved in and the owner was kind enough to give me a bunch of junk to furnish my place with.”
8. Chic and calm via @aimeesong
Fashion and lifestyle influencer Aimee Song best known for 'Song of Style' started blogging in 2008 while studying Interior Architecture in San Francisco. Unsurprisingly, the highly successful blogger, Youtuber, and fashion label owner boasts a beautiful home that's equally as stylish as her. The chic abode features a thoughtful curation of organic materials and shapes, a neutral palette, and luxe furnishings.
9. Beautiful blues via @mrorlandosoria
Interior designer and CEO of long Instagram captions Orlando Soria has made a name for himself creating liveable luxury. His signature aesthetic balances modern style and bold colour with cosy comfort—the teal sofa in this living room gestures cheerfully at the more muted blue wall hanging, created by the designer himself.
