Designer Francesca Grace, of Francesca Grace Home, has worked with celebs like Alicia Keys, Sabrina Carpenter, Hilary Duff, Kyle Richards and more to create stunning homes. But it’s her own homes that are my favorite in her project portfolio. When Apartment Therapy toured her home a couple of years ago, it was a maximalist space with bold wallpaper patterns and a vintage flair. Her most recent home is an extension of that same style, but a little bolder — an absolute reflection of her own personal aesthetic.

“Maximalist treasure trove, vintage eclectic, antique lover’s dream, if a hotel was a home,” is how Francesca describes her home’s style, and this sentiment oozes out of every room of the two-bedroom rental house in Los Angeles’ Silver Lake neighborhood.

Rich jewel-tone paint colors, draped curtains, and layered patterns define a lot of the space (and was no doubt fun to design). But Francesca admits that the home’s biggest challenge was the layout (specifically, what to do with the house’s first two rooms), and wallpaper and color helped form her solution.

“Because of how the front room blends with little separation into the second, I had a really tough time deciding which room should act as the dining room and which should act as the living room. I must have gone back and forth at least 10 times. Eventually I settled on the front room as the living space and the second as the dining room but still wanted to emphasize the separation between the two,” Francesca begins.

“I did this through the use of wallpaper and distinct color palettes. The living room is rich with shades of green, while the dining room leans into a lighter palette complemented by light pinks, hues of rust, and creams. This distinction in color palette between the two rooms really helped make the two rooms feel like their own individual spaces.” 

Her visual solution works beautifully to create two distinct rooms, but the result is also a stunning space that’s undoubtedly enjoyable to spend time in.

“I absolutely love hosting in my home. I probably spend the most time in the kitchen whether I’m cooking dinner for friends or just cozying up with a cup of coffee in the morning. If I’m not in the kitchen you’ll probably find me in the living room. To me this room feels like the lobby of one of my favorite hotels; moody, cozy and inviting. It’s the perfect space to unwind and decompress from the day. And if I’m not in either of those rooms I’m probably outside, tending to my garden or soaking up the sun with my chickens and Daisy.”
