Modern California Aesthetic
The Golden State is a place brimming with beauty of all sorts, where this light and bright, California-cool sophisticated West Hollywood home perfectly sits.
Believing that a house has a soul and a journey, and that there’s a story behind everything, Nina Dobrev tells of the Zen vibe of good energy in her place in California. History has been kept intact as well as the original character of the 1929 Spanish-style abode, as it was beautifully transformed into a modernized, sleek and cozy bungalow.
Crown moldings on the interior gracefully flare out to keep the mission style architecture. A dramatic arch adorns the living room, draped in linens with soft hues, complemented by pristine white walls and flushed with sunlight. Smart, artistic accents and curated details define her collection, such as a pair of vintage books she picked up during filming in Vancouver, and a lovely pillow conglomeration acquired from Atlanta.
The entire home exhibits the consistency of high-contrast black and white, dark and rich tones, even in the bed and sheets on top of it, and unique film camera X-ray painting from her artist mother, Michaela Constantine. The dining area presents a table with plates, bowls, and glasses forming an artful centerpiece. Extensive construction was dedicated to the kitchen, where wooden floors were turned herringbone white, and silver accessories turned to brass and copper, and the addition of a banquet nook. Head outdoors, and you’ll fall for the breathtaking view of the pool enveloped in nature.
Her inspiration? You might have guessed- social media. The actress managed to get in touch with Mat Sanders from Consort Design on Instagram, whom she’s been a long-standing fan of. She also reached out to street artist Bradley Theodore, who has created the living room’s focal point in a remarkable work of art featuring Dobrev’s idol, Audrey Hepburn wrapped in the glamour of a little black dress.
