Veranda Magazine featured JLo’s California home and an interview of her interior designer Michelle Workman, who remodeled the house in 2010. She says: “It’s sort of Jennifer in a nutshell—she has a romantic streak”.
The Art Deco 1940s style residence is sun-filled and spacious, the ethereal blue-grays, velvet sheens and shimmering silvers truly captivate.
In another designer’s hands, all of the grays and blues could feel like a cold draft. Workman chose fabrics such as silk, velvet and leather that have a highly tactile and welcoming character. She used chandeliers that warmly reflect light. She also added brass and bronze accessories to raise the temperature in the rooms.
The designer says:”I love to mix gold and silver tones. It’s warm and cool together. Gold is traditional, and silver is modern and sleek. It’s a great marriage of feminine and masculine.”
Old Hollywood glamour is back..
