We’ve been invited into the homes of some truly special people this year. As 2017 draws to a close, we’re looking back at some of the amazing clients, memories, and spaces that made 2017 a magical year of design. From a TV star’s new family home to a retro vacation pad in Palm Springs, these are the makeovers that made our year! A special thanks to those that helped along the way, and every other design we did – we love them all! Gray Malin’s Coastal Creative Studio Gray Malin’s

Picture this: An umbrella-studded beach on the Italian Riviera. An aerial image of boldly hued life preservers floating placidly in a pool. A pair of llamas donning pink balloons on the surreal salt flats of Bolivia. This is the work of fine-art photographer, Gray Malin. Even if you don’t know him by name, you’ve probably seen his wanderlust-inducing photography. His shots evoke a feeling of beautiful sunny days and unforgettable vacations. They’re an aesthetically pleasing distraction from the chaos of everyday life. To put it plainly, it’s the kind of

After five years on the hit ABC show Scandal, actress Katie Lowes is saying goodbye to her role as Quinn Perkins and prepping for her biggest one yet. She’s been doing her research, changing her wardrobe and bonding with costar Adam Shapiro. Their new gig? Parents. Ahead of the baby’s arrival, Katie and Adam decided to bid farewell to their funky Hollywood Hills bungalow in favor of a more family friendly home. But the change wasn’t easy. “The night before we moved in, I was crying. There’s something about when

For many, working from home is a constant battle between household distractions and actually getting work done. But for Ashley Villa, an attorney-turned-entrepreneur, home is where projects see completion. After leaving her in-house legal job in 2015, Ashley launched her own talent management company, Rare Global, which offers digital media contracts, strategic relationships, and brand management to high-profile YouTube stars. Her most recent endeavor? Designing a new domain to function as both her company’s office and her personal living space. “I currently run my talent management agency from home, and

Los Angeles native, Genevieve Wong is no stranger to the spotlight. As a four-time Emmy-nominated producer, New York Post journalist, and part-time actress, she has done everything from interview serial killers in Alaska to manage the news desk at Access Hollywood. And with a schedule that consists of countless hours on set, it’s no surprise that creating a comfortable place to come home to took a back seat. After purchasing a fixer-upper set against the Hollywood hillside, she knew that she had her work cut out for her if she

Let’s face it — most influencers aren’t that relatable. According to their Instagram accounts, their lives consist of lavish vacations, a photographer on-call 24-hours a day and an endless supply of expensive outfits. Their lifestyles often seem unattainable and unrealistic. But that’s not the case with YouTube content creator, Sarah Belle. Though she’s incessantly on-trend and her makeup is always flawless, the twenty-four-year old speaks to her audience with wit and sincerity. “As you can probably tell, I’m sitting in a very aggressive peacock chair,” she says in the intro for

All of your hard work and long hours have paid off and you’ve finally reached the ultimate level of adulthood: buying a home. While you’re probably inclined to take any gem on the market that your heart (and wallet) so desires, making an important decision based on emotions and eagerness is, well, not an approach we recommend. So, from budgeting to understanding your new financial responsibility, a couple homeowners from Laurel & Wolf are sharing what every prospective homeowner should know before purchasing a

Image via Architectural Digest When you have your eyes glued on Orlando Bloom in the latest Pirates of the Carribean movie, it’s pretty easy to forget that he’s a father. But that’s one way that celebrities are just like us — they have families. They also have homes. So in honor of Father’s Day, we’ve rounded up the homes of some of our favorite famous dads and their families. Though they may not be able to tell a Dad joke like your old man, they do have some serious style when it

By now, it should come as no surprise that the state of our minds is directly related to the state of our spaces. Feeling scattered and stressed out? Well, your home is probably right there with you! Feeling like you’re on top of the world? Chances are your home is in tip-top shape too (nice job!). And if anyone knows this principle be true, it’s art therapist and yoga instructor Jessie De Lowe of the popular lifestyle blog, How You Glow. Jessie recently enlisted the expertise of Laurel & Wolf interior designer Ryen Conley to turn a blank

Sometimes all it takes is a little imagination (and A LOT of elbow grease) to transform an eyesore into a treasure. Just ask Laurel & Wolf’s own VP of Design Marketplace, Aisling Mittman, who used her design cred to see the potential in an untouched, midcentury-meets-traditional ranch house on a quiet Los Angeles street. In a real estate market as competitive as L.A.’s, finding the beauty in a beastly house can pay off big time. When you see these Before and After photos, you’ll know exactly what we mean!
