Fashion and Beauty Blogger’s Serene California Condo

Fashion and Beauty Blogger’s Serene California Condo

Fashion and beauty blogger Sydne Summer wanted her 740-square foot home in West Hollywood, California to be an extension of her blog and Instagram.

With the help of her designer, Jean Luxe, she set out to renovate her home to create a soft and modern aura as well as to radiate her personal style – feminine and polished.

Let’s tour the home and see what it turned out to be after three-month-long renovation.

Sydne no longer rents studio spaces as she does all her shoots at home, thanks to her condo’s open concept space. The space is also great for entertaining. It feels cozy and serene, thanks to the soft velvet furniture with faux fur accents.

The inspiration for her condominium was mixed metallics with blush and marble accents. They crafted it around the photo that includes wine.

Sydne lives with her rescue pup, Bunny Bell. The all-white walls and a spacious balcony makes the 740 square feet condo feel large and airy.

The kitchen features Reno Modern Classic Counter stools from Kathy Kuo and a copper teapot from CB2.

The artwork is Sydne’s best DIY. She made the oil painting above the couch. And with the help of her photographer, they created the lemon photo that hangs in the kitchen.

When it comes to home renovation, Sydne advises that you should double your time expectations. Her renovation took over three months while she initially thought it could be accomplished in just about  6 weeks.

She points out to her custom chandelier as her biggest indulgence. She spent a fortune on it when she first moved into the home. It started to tarnish after ten years. So she had it cleaned and rethreaded to restore its original look.

The Tiffany Chairs and Saarinen Table are products of Room&Board. And the all-white bedroom radiates a cozy and serene aura as the rest of the home.

Being a fashion and lifestyle blogger, Sydne always has stuff coming in and out of her home. So she had to find places to hide stuff. She accomplished that through custom closets and cabinetry.

She also kept the mirrored walls that previously existed in the home. Her designer devised the creative solution to frame the mirrors to give them a more modern and fresh look.

The vanity table is her favorite piece in the home. It is a gift from her late grandparents. She refinished it with a glossy white, installed new knobs, and reupholstered the seat to make it blend in.

Your eye can’t miss the “Shoes in Bathtub” print. It is a work of Michelle Kyle, her photographer.

The Ice Round Bistro Table on the Balcony is from Compamia while the Clear Accent chairs are by Fine Mod Imports. The animals in glasses pillows are the work of Kavka Designs.
