This Hollywood studio, just shy of 500 square feet, is a testament to small space style. LA-based designer, John-Paul San Pedro, wanted to create the perfect space for the owner, who travels in between San Francisco and Los Angeles and needed a simple and inspiring space to stay while working in Hollywood.
John-Paul immediately went the direction of white walls to give the illusion of more space; exuding openness and a crisp look with no-fuss, lightweight furniture, including the Dot & Bo Geometric Median Table . When addressing the walls, keeping it minimalist was key to John-Paul, and he used an angular geometric piece from his own incredibly cool Etsy collection, JPSPDesign.
The final reveal was a gorgeous, light-filled home with key pieces and an amazingly calming look. We loved hearing about the inspiration and process behind this clean, contemporary studio - so we had John-Paul share his answers to our design questionnaire!
How would you describe your personal design style? Understated design. Simple and often minimal. A mix of modern and period pieces anywhere from 17th century to midcentury.
Did you have a specific look in mind when selecting new pieces for the project you were working on? No specific look, but wanted to incorporate thin profiles and lines, geometric but not busy. Light and airy.
Is this project finished? Or are you still designing? I’ve contributed my part to the design. The rest is up to the client as they evolve; when the client’s taste changes so does their space. I don’t like to over design because, in time, it allows the client to add more to really achieve that personalized touch.
How did you choose the Dot & Bo piece(s) for this project? The coffee table from Dot & Bo was a practical and good looking choice. It’s light in weight and saves on visual space while packing a punch in style.
