Los Angeles CA
After 13 yrs in the design business, Kenneth Brown opens a brick and morter shop. Appropriately called HOME, it's a quaint little space the size of a modest 1 BR apt.
I have a confession; for me, styling your house and decorating it to perfection is a matter of pure instinct. I'm not an interior designer. I've never studied interior design or decorating yet I have always admired those who do. I drive by Kenneth Brown Home at least once a day and think "what a delightful little space"!
Kenneth Brown is well established in the design world, and known for creating thoughtful and warm atmospheres. He opened his own design firm in 1997, and made a name for himself with television shows on TLC and HGTV. Kenneth has worked with such celebrities as Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens and Kristen Bell. Trying out a new adventure, he and his design team have opened up a retail space.
The intimate and cozy shop sits half a block off of the busy La Brea Design district- Kenneth explained to me that he preferred to have a bit more privacy than the usual busy foot traffic. Another thing I noticed immediately is the high vaulted ceilings that create a sense of openness, as the space itself is reflects the size of a modest apartment. Kenneth also explains he wants to bring southern charm to Southern California living. Adam Straus and Min Cha, his two assistants help run the shop, were quite helpful at making me feel right at home.
