Music has a way of defining a person’s particular lifestyle. From leather jackets to bell bottoms, the trends that have emerged from musical styles are proof that music is meant to be seen just as much as it is meant to be heard. In the 1960s, teenagers plastered their walls with posters of the artists they worshiped and record covers became collector’s items. The idea of designing a space around music paraphernalia is often relegated to college dorm rooms, but it can be curated in a way that elevates the design

Wrapping up our Art Weekend LA Series is Doni Silver Simons, who practices from a Santa Monica studio and recently exhibited her work in LA’s Startup Art Fair.

Over the next few days, Los Angeles’ burgeoning art scene will be celebrated with Art Weekend LA — a biannual exploration of art fairs, galleries, and museums across the city. With Los Angeles being Laurel & Wolf’s hometown, we are constantly interacting with our neighboring creative communities and we’re excited to see how the city manifests itself in this year’s work.  Recognizing its undeniable crossover with interior design, we believe that art has the ability to alter the way a space is perceived, and similarly, interior design has the ability to influence the way in which art is

When your wardrobe consists of over 250 articles of clothing (yes, we counted), even the most meticulously organized closets can feel like a big, beautiful disaster. Sure, identical wooden hangers, a spacious dresser, and stylish jewelry displays work wonders, but purging yourself of items you haven’t worn in ages is often the least glamorous, yet most impactful part of the process. With the help of her Laurel & Wolf Designer Jessica Today, Lexi did just that and created a space as fashionable as she is. “It’s important for me to get creative with the clothes and accessories

Though the new year has just begun, 2016 has already made history in the interior design world. For the first time ever, Pantone has introduced not one, but two Pantone Colors of the Year. When paired together, delicate Rose Quartz and soothing Blue Serenity create a sense of tranquility and strike a harmonious chord between warm and cool tones.

We all know someone who has put our needs before their own. For many of us that person is our parent, who was always there to lift us up or make us feel better when we were ill, or a friend who showed us how to laugh again when we were at our lowest. At Laurel & Wolf, we thought, wouldn’t it be great if we could give back to someone who has been generous with us in a big way? The holidays present the perfect chance to acknowledge the
