Tour Lauren Bushnell's California Glam Bachelorette Pad
If there was a Bachelor contestant who left an impression on us, it was Lauren Bushnell. The Season 20 contestant has impeccable style and taste and a true love for interior design. After her break-up, Lauren moved from Denver to a new home in Los Angeles and reached out to Decorist for design help. Of course, we were beyond thrilled to help! With a busy schedule, Lauren didn’t want to venture into DIY or the time consuming face-to-face meetings with a designer so Decorist was the perfect solution.
In came Decorist Design Director Jessica McCarthy who teamed up with Bed, Bath & Beyond to create Lauren’s dream, Instagram-worthy abode. While Lauren's existing space had concrete floors and industrial finishes, she knew she wanted a feminine, cozy, relaxed look for her apartment. Jessica worked with the minimal architectural elements of Lauren’s apartment and gave it a laid back, comfortable 'California Glam' look—and the results are gorgeous. Find out how Jessica turned Lauren’s apartment into the home of her dreams and see more photos of the glamorous reveal ahead. Also, you can read more about it in PopSugar.
For the master bedroom, Jessica toned down some of the stark elements by adding soft textural materials like a chunky pink throw from Etsy vendor Sarah LouCo, faux fur covered bench, sheepskin throw and linen tufted bed. Contrasting some of the gray undertones, she brought in brass elements which can be found throughout the room in the lamp, night stand, mirror and the pulls on the campaign style dresser. The dark floral wallpaper and charcoal area rug give the bedroom extra glam but also an edgy appeal.
With an open concept living room, Jessica’s wanted the 'California Glam' vibe to shine. And it surely does just that! From the cozy blush colored sectional, to the whimsical wallpaper, to show-stopping “California Dreamin” neon sign, this room has some serious Southern California style.
To soften the space, Jessica layered in area rugs, added texture through throw pillows and sheepskin throws to cozy up the space. A barcart with warm brass details is tucked next to the sofa for hosting the ultimate get-togethers and parties with friends. Lastly, Jessica sprinkled in lots of plants to bring the space to life and create an inviting atmosphere.
The dining room nook offers a balanced mix of natural, sleek and textured materials. A sleek marble tulip table anchors the dining room nook, but it’s the warmth of the reclaimed teak chairs and woven wall hanging from Etsy artisan Little Weave Bird (with a pop of pink, of course!) that inject the space with Lauren’s feminine style. The cow hide rug helps give it a laid back look and adds another layer of texture to the room.
