Designer Jeff Andrews had clear directions for this LA remodel: create a design that blends Hollywood chic with Beverly Hills glam and exude just as much star power as its owner, concert director Jamie King (ahem, for Britney Spears and Madonna). It was a tall order, but the result would make anyone in show business proud. The 2,000-square-foot home was built in the 1930s and was in dire need of an update. This was achieved mostly by the removal of interior walls to allow for an open floor plan, which also gave King a cooler space for entertaining guests. The daybed in this room was designed by Andrews himself. Its perfect for the meetings that King holds here. Vintage chairs and a floor covering by the Rug Co. really round the space out. The Schonbek black crystal chandelier serves as the focal point in the master bedroom, mirrored with dark accents throughout the rest of the room. The leather headboard (a masculine touch) was custom-built for the space. Tile, tile and more tile! The mosaic floor tile, multicolored shower tile and limestone wall tile in the master bath are all from Ann Sacks. To achieve a seamless flow between in the indoors and out, the living room offers a full view of the outdoor patio, pool, fireplace and sitting area through innovative pocket window walls. The wood flooring remains as it always has been. There seems to be no shortage of star power in this LA designanother remodel well-done.
