West Hollywood Apartment of Melissa Warner

Yesterday's 'Featured Designer' post highlighted  the work of an up an coming design firm, Massucco Warner Miller. (Click here if you missed it!) This month in House Beautiful you can see the West Hollywood home of Melissa Warner. Her San Francisco design firm recently expanded, opening an LA office and Warner needed a home away from home. The two bedroom apartment she is renting is filled to the brim with fabulousness! Check it out. . .

Her boyfriend likes to call the apartment 'Disneyland' because it exudes such an aura of cheerfulness! I agree! I could definitely see myself living in this space.

Warmer thinks that pillows should bring something new to a room, whether it be introducing a new color, adding a graphic pattern or a layer on texture. The graphic orange pillows that she used here add that extra punch that the room needed to take it to an entirely new level, in my opinion!

I simply adore this vignette! I am working on a project right now and am considering painting a credenza just like this one!

I love the 'Eat' sign in the dining area, it adds a punch of playfulness to an otherwise taylored room.

All of the dressmaker details that Warner uses really adds to the polished feel of the room.

All I can say about this office space is YES, PLEASE!!!

In the office: Melissa uses a lucite chair and glass top table to trick the eye and give the illusion of more space. She also reversed the original mirrored closet doors (that made the space feel too much like a bedroom) and wallpapered the backs! When she leaves, she can just remove the paper and turn them back around. Genius!
