lombardi house

It’s been a while since I have updated any progress from The Lombardi House. Well , lawdy lawd knows I love some “before and afters” and I have some MAJOR ones to show off. First I must say that this project was definitely a labor of love. When I first walked in, the house was in quite a mess. There was random furniture everywhere, yucky lighting, un flattering paint colors, and just overall the inside was a total disconnect from the outside. The building was so charming and the whole property had such potential, I just knew it was going to take a lot to get it right and return the house to its original lovely self! Trying to design a Vacation rental friendly space, that doubles as an event space on a tight budget, was no easy task, but one I gladly took it on.

Luckily in the end, I couldn’t be happier with the way it all turned out.

The house is split into 4 apartment units in the main house and then an incredible event space/barn in the back! There is NOTHING like this anywhere in Hollywood and I am so proud and honored to have had the opportunity to be involved!

  1. This is so gorgeous! Can you share what paint color you used on the walls? It is the most magnificent grey and I need it in my life immediately. Thanks so much!

  2. WOW! So crisp, clean and inviting. It evokes the feeling of being on vacation – makes me want to stay here!
    Are you able to give the source of the sconces in the bedrooms? I’ve been looking and so happy when I saw these – they’re exactly what I’ve been looking for!
    Beautiful job. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Wow! What a beautiful transformation! I am such a fan of your work, I could live in anyone of your designs and be happy for life! The last “after” photo of one of the bedrooms, where is that comforter from? I L O V E and need it :)

  4. Hi Amber,
    I’m such a fan of your work and aesthetic, the house is just gorgeous. I especially love the green leaf printed curtains, do you supply the fabric by the metre?
    Keep up your fabulous work,
    Clare Xx

  5. Holy huge project!!! That is one massive whopper you have pulled off there. Not surprising at all, everything you touch turns to gold. I love your work! My brother is a musician (ever heard of Sleigh Bells? He’s Derek, the main dude) and I completely feel your pain AND joy watching someone you love experience the super highs and super lows of that industry. Listened to the Duck’s tunes – great stuff! Lots of love!! Kara
