A Cozy Laurel Canyon Cottage

I’ve become somewhat obsessed with following Homepolish and their designers on Instagram because they have such a wide network of projects that there’s always something new to see. And I have an unlimited amount of room in my brain for pictures of pretty houses. This week they posted a beautiful new home in Los Angeles and Noa was kind enough to let me share it here on D*S today, too.

Matt and Andrew are the owners of this gorgeous Laurel Canyon cottage and they used a mix of family heirlooms and pieces collected during their travels to decorate. I love the mix of old and new in the space – it could have run a little too sparse and white without all of their treasured vintage and flea market finds, but those bits of added texture and pattern really bring it all together. I can’t stop staring at the combo of their yellow velvet chair and a beautiful piece of brown and white mud cloth-style fabric. It’s perfection. I love any home that feels decorated but still lived in and this one does that so well for me. Throw in a cute dog and some glossy black doors and I’m sold. Well done, guys.

    Gorgeous! There’s so much to love here, but I’m really amused by the lamp in the last picture and how it reminds me of the hat in the Devo music videos!

    This space is inspirational. Looks like there’s a lot of natural light <3

    White walls, loads of textiles, and a cottage in Laurel Canyon. That’s pretty close to Eden to me. Bonus points for the cute dog that stays on the dark band of fabric draped across the bed.

  6. Gorgeous, I like the dog looking through the window!

    Any chance of finding out what the green paint in the bathroom is? I feel I’ve been searching for that colour all my life.

    to me, the bathroom looks similar to a color I have used and love, Soft Fern by Ben. Moore. But I didn’t have all those wondows and light!
