Tour Kelly Oxford’s LA Home

 

“Half of our texts were about furniture, the other half were attempts to make each other laugh. Let this be a lesson to all of us that if you want someone to work super hard for you, tell them a joke!”

—Orlando Soria, Creative Director at Homepolish

I’m excited to announce my first post as a Martha Stewart Contributor! When the Martha Stewart team asked me to write for their website, I (nearly had a heart attack) knew I had to find a home tour worthy of the Martha Stewart caliber. I also wanted it to have the distinct aesthetic found in Savvy Home house tours—so I turned to Homepolish‘s endless gallery of projects.

Kelly Oxford’s Los Angeles house was an obvious choice. The mid-century Palm Springs inspired house tugs at my heartstrings for obvious reasons: aside from the fact that Oxford and I share the same bar stools (remember the One Room Challenge reveal?), I just love the brightness and boldness of the space; and the quirky accents layered throughout. A few favorites: the Bludot Strut console, the dining room chairs and the show-stopping triptych by Ben Medansky.

Oxford’s house was designed by Orlando Soria, West Coast Creative Director at Homepolish, who oversees many of Homepolish’s bigger projects and celebrity clients on the West Coast. With over 600k Twitter followers and one New York Times bestseller, you can safely assume that Kelly Oxford falls into the latter category. This speaks highly of Homepolish’s increasingly stellar portfolio of clients, ranging from big names like Leandra Medine and Rumi Neely, to anyone in need of a little decorating help. With over 250 designers (and counting) under their belt, you can only expect more great things from Homepolish in the future!

Inside Andrew Bird’s LA Family Home

 “When you have a design sense, it’s almost easier if your house starts out not right. It helps to looks at a space and think, ‘We can begin again.'”

—Katherine Tsina

You have to admire the sense of minimalist restraint that reigns in the Los Angeles home of Andrew Bird and his wife, fashion designer Katherine Trisha. The 1920s-era residence fosters less-is-more quality-over-quantity sensibility: Aesop bath products, Waterworks bath fixtures, Nickey Kehoe ceramics, Byredo soaps, Workstead light fixtures, Astier de Villatte pottery, Milo Baughman antique sofa, Farrow & Ball Pointing white walls…

“Statement pieces are selected with the same thoughtfulness as a potential roommate.”

The West Village expats bought the house on an impromptu house-hunting trip to LA—seeking a sense of calm and space and a better work/life balance. With the house’s soaring high ceilings, an in-house music room for Bird and a design studio for Tsina, I’d suggest it was a successful move.
