Peek Inside Solange Knowles’ Art Deco-Inspired LA Loft for Sale
When it comes to symmetrical furniture and thoughtful earth tones, Solange Knowles understands how to work both into a living space. And after listening to any of her albums, it’s unsurprising that her home looks as calming as it does.
Seen in Apartamento Magazine’s fall 2022 issue, fans of the singer-songwriter (and of interior design in general) were swooning over Knowles’ Hollywood home, especially its unique Black artwork and Japanese soaking tub. And the question mark-shaped brown velvet couch in the living room seems to have the perfect curvature for a cozy night in or hosting friends. The Saint Heron founder has lived in this apartment since she was 19, so there’s no doubt that the environment is filled with a creative and loving ambiance.
“As my career as a songwriter grew, I wanted to find a place where we could have a bit more grounding, a home life there with more stable roots,” Knowles told Apartamento Magazine in an interview. “I was a single mother and was looking for a building with a sense of safety when I found this loft space in Hollywood. I felt really connected to its ‘20s art deco architecture, its exterior, and all of its original mouldings and details. And the space inside got really good light.”
Although this seems like the perfect home, Solange has listed this apartment and another now-closed property in the South for sale.
Her Los Angeles loft is a creative’s dream residence, and its scenic views of the Capitol Records building is a notable perk of the two-story apartment. Its listing price is close to $800,000 and consists of the loft’s three bedrooms, and one-and-a-half bathrooms.
At the corner of Hollywood and Vine, the luxury building sits above the Walk of Fame and offers a 24-hour doorman, valet parking, a rooftop terrace, dining area, fire pit, and multiple lounges with panoramic city views. The apartment is listed by Daniel Banchik and Amy Dantzler at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties.
Knowles’ second property — her creative hub transformed from an old church in New Orleans — is no longer accepting offers, so clearly the artist’s taste in interior design is catching plenty of attention. Purchased in 2018, the New Orleans congregation area was a former creative space for Saint Heron activities, but she’s still keeping a residence in the French Quarter. And can you blame her? It is New Orleans, after all.
Despite the fact that Knowles is selling her two properties, the design takeaways from her Hollywood loft will remain on mood boards forever.
