Tour home at intersection of La Brea & ‘collected boho chic’


I’m still admiring this West Hollywood home tour that took an encore bow on Apartment Therapy a few weeks back.

It’s the home of LA architect Tommy Chambers and partner Todd Kusy. The pair live in one half of the 1,250-square-foot duplex, and Chambers has the offices for his design business in the other half. He calls the design style of the house “collected bohemian chic.” 

Whatever it is, I'm ready to move in.

I love the look of no blinds at top or bottom on the front windows. It lets so much light into the room while also preserving privacy.

Here’s a close-up of that entry table. What a great idea to organize your essentials on a tray by the door and never forget wallet, keys or shades again.

This view of the living room shows off the floor cushions that match the Moroccan rug, as well as the dresser and the art surrounding it.

Both the ottomans and the couch are Chambers’ custom designs. He suggests making big upholstered pieces neutral and classic “then go to town on the pillows. Most important is to make play with the pillows because they’re the easiest thing to change and have fun with. *Sigh* This is truly a man after my own heart. 


I'd really prefer to hold court in this living room, but I spy...

...more of the blue bobbin-spool chairs flanking the entry table in the dining room. Chambers says the set of chairs was inexpensive, though they were originally painted black. The blue is a fun touch, and the style mixes well with the set of eight mahogany chairs he inherited from his grandmother, which he pulls into service from other rooms when needed.

And I have to include a view of the dining that shows off this gorgeous painting. Chambers features more than 200 works of art in his home and says they’re his favorite part of the entire space.

Decorating options are limited in a small galley kitchen, but Chambers makes the most of what he has with the Persian runner on the floor, Albert Hadley-designed wallpaper on the ceiling, and a burgundy professional-grade stove. The painting hanging over brick wallpaper adds even more character and a bit of cheek. 


Door treatment acts as an invitation to come closer

Chambers converted the double doors into the master bedroom into French-style bulletin boards for posting photos of friends and family, notes and memorabilia. “A daily reminder the LIFE IS GOOD,” he says.

Chambers designed the upholstered headboard. It’s simply two upholstered rectangles that hang on the wall with flat cleat hangers. He found the faux stitched leather on a fabric store clearance table.


Such a fun boho home!
