“This architectural home is perched on the hillside in the Doheny Estates neighborhood bordering West Hollywood and Beverly Hills with sweeping views of Los Angeles from downtown to the Pacific,” designer Jeff Andrews tells us. The home was designed for a Manhattan-based surgeon and serves as his West Coat outpost for relaxing and entertaining.
Andrews, author of The New Glamour: Interiors with Star Quality, took the interior decoration job with the intent of striking a balance between warmth and comfort while honoring the modern architecture. To date, they’ve completed the upper level of the home which includes the open living room and dining area, kitchen, lounge, and main bedroom suite, as well as the outdoor spaces.” We added Modern Glamour through textures, patterns and colors,” he explains. “Some of my favorite additions to the space are the new lighting and wallpaper, which is from my own Re-Glazed collection by Astek Wallcovering.”
In the kitchen, Andrews relied on a unique mix of materials. “I love that it’s very open and contemporary and quite unconventional, but a little cold,” he says. “The statement light installation adds a handmade element to the space – the multiple pendants were made by Heather Levine Ceramics, a personal favorite local artisan of mine. We also added the stools by Thomas Hayes – as always, they were a perfect choice to bring this room to life.”
The lounge is all about comfort. He lists off a few key details: “The base of the room is the Brushstroke rug from my collection with Mansour Modern. The custom sectional is by A. Rudin, which I paired with my No. 861 Lounge chair from my collection for A. Rudin. The lamps are by Victoria Morris, another personal favorite.” Just adjacent to this space is the dining room, which has a beautiful rock crystal pendant by Christopher Boots. The table has a custom oak top and is surrounded by LBD chairs from Natasha Baradaran.
In the living room, the designer’s love of symmetry shines bright. “It’s a necessary element to ground the open floor plan,” he says. “I started this space from the ground up with a custom hide rug by Kyle Bunting, which also set the tone for the color palette. The pair of sofas are my own No. 2860 design for A. Rudin. There is a generous mix of fabrics from Rubelli, Nobilis, and Pollack. The coffee table is from Jean de Merry, which we had custom made as a circle. The painting over the fireplace is by S Keeney and sourced through Lucca Antiques.”
As you head upstairs, you’ll see another Jeff Andrews for Astek wallpaper—Chiseled—and a two-story chandelier from Zia Priven. Here, simple furnishings like a sculptural bench by Caste Design via Holly Hunt and an abstract painting sourced through Daleno Gallery add an impactful touch.
The private spaces are all about luxury and relaxation. In the primary bath, Andrews added a chic console from Jean de Merry and a No. 852 chair from his A. Rudin collection to the marble-clad space. “The vessels on the console are personal favorites by Heather Rosenman,” he shares. “In the bedroom, we oriented the painterly striped wallpaper from Nobilis via Kneedler Fauchere horizontally and layered with the ‘Armando 2017’ abstract painting sourced through John Wolf.” Other details include a bed and bedside tables by Lawson-Fenning, a custom jute rug is by Anthony Monaco, and again, the pair of side chairs from the designer’s collection with A. Rudin.
While certain spaces might be a lesson in symmetry, the entire home is a lesson in balance. The public spaces are made for a party, while the private spaces call for supreme rest and relaxation—it’s the best of both worlds. Take a closer look in the slideshow.
