City Style: Create a Los Angeles-Inspired Space

Los Angeles style is as diverse as the city itself. See our take on the City of Angels – and the aesthetic it inspires.


If your idea of the perfect weekend involves hiking Runyon Canyon, spin class and prepping for Monday’s audition – and if the verb ‘to brunch’ is a regular part of your vocabulary – you just might be a Los Angeleno.

Chock-full of trendy places to eat, lively nightclubs and buzz-worthy street style (where the ubiquitous yoga pant can be spotted around every corner), The City of Angels and the Land of Overly-Priced Kale Smoothies has earned its reputation as global ambassador for all things trending.

‘LA style’ can mean a lot of different things to a lot of different people, and almost all – from the laidback surfer to the corporate executive – can find something to love about it.

It’s this diversity (and, not to mention, the year-round sunshine and blue skies) that makes it such a beautiful place to live.

Of course, observing this beauty and actually absorbing its culture into your day-to-day are two different things.

But whether you’re living in the heart of the life of the city or watching it unfold from afar...

...incorporating the L.A. vibe into your life can actually be super simple – starting with just a little redecorating!

Pictured below, the comfy textures and laidback colors of a tufted sofa offset the industrial paneling and exposed brick of a casual LA-style loft.

L.A. may seem all-organic, all the time, but it’s also full of colorful characters.

Here, organic meets colorful; bold coffee table books make a statement and bring a punch of color into an earthy vibe.

Flood of Light: the envy of the world, L.A.’s notoriously beautiful weather tends to keep the hiking trails full and the sidewalks bustling, all day, everyday…

…so, draw back the shades – and celebrate the energy of natural sunshine, just like the locals!


Paint it Black

Black accents against a crisp white wall keep it L.A. chic, while clean lines, geometric art and metallic hardware give a city-industrial vibe.
