Interior Inspiration


Tour a Designer's LA Bachelor Pad

When Derek Mattison, the designer behind the Los Angeles-based label Mattison, bought a two-story, three-bedroom villa in the Hollywood Hills, it was something of a fixer-upper. He worked with Commune, the same design studio who built Mattison's slick West Hollywood shop, to revive the house's original character and modernize it for today. The look is equal parts rustic bohemian cabin and sophisticated modern loft.

The house was originally designed by famous Californian architects Buff & Hensman.

Exposed beams and a sparse, industrial staircase add some modern vibes.

Panels of reclaimed oak wood cover the interior walls.

A mix of clean lines, vintage furnishings and bold patterns make for a cool contrast.

The glass walls of the living area open out onto the terrace.

A sunken deck and a ceramic wall mural up the sex appeal of a simple backyard pool.
