Interior Design Inspiration: European Villa in West Hollywood

 The Inspiration:
A European inspired villa in West Hollywood
looks like an older established home but was
actually built in 2014 as a spec home by its
designer, Leigh Herzig.

The real estate listing noted:

Old World European style meets every modern amenity in this one-of-a-kind, brand new designer home. This house is a complete departure from every other new house on the market. White oak and limestone floors from France, Italian plaster walls, and beautiful, earthy, reclaimed wood cabinetry. 4 warm, tasteful bedrooms and 3 elegant baths upstairs, including master w steam shower and balcony overlooking the saltwater pool and hot tub. The main floor boasts an office/5th bedroom, two living rooms, 2 bathrooms and incredible top of the line, open kitchen. All flows to the outdoor fireplace and pool cabana with additional bathroom and outdoor shower. Smart home system controls lights, music, fireplace, alarm and AC. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for someone with a sophisticated design aesthetic to find all the charm, warmth and elegance of a designer European villa steps from Melrose Ave. You definitely will not see another like this one for a long time!

Why I Picked It For You…
The use of reclaimed materials like wood and stone,
friendly priced alternatives to: European White Oak
hardwood flooring and those black steel windows
everybody wants…


Where I spied it…
I love the home’s backstory which you can
read on Remodelista…in a nutshell, this was
Ms. Herzig’s chance to show off her skills
as a self-taught designer, and she hired a
contractor, engineer, and cabinet maker
to help her create this custom architectural beauty.

Notable Facts…
The 4,000 sf home sold for close to asking in just
2 weeks ($3.2 million) when it went on the market,
and inside you’ll find:

Venetian stucco walls
Old World European Meets Modern Cali style
Steel Look Windows (They’re Wood!)
Kitchen Walls & Ceiling Clad in Waterproof
Moroccan Lime plaster
Interiors Inspired by Axel Vervoordt & Vincent Van Duysen
French Limestone Countertops & Flooring
Reclaimed Oak, Poplar, and Beech Wood
for Cabinets and Shelves
Antiqued Brass Hardware
Wood Floors that Look Like European
White Oak (they’re canewood, engineered flooring
made locally, costing $6-8 a square foot)
The 4 Bedrooms Upstairs All Have Balconies

I love this home’s design so much,
and like a lot of you am getting
very interested in plasterwork…
beautiful examples here.
