It’s been a while since we first covered the Echo Park Airbnb of two of LA’s buzziest creatives—fashion designer Beatrice Valenzuela and her partner, wood and metal artist Ramsey Condor—but we haven’t forgotten its charm. With summer in full swing, we thought it would be a good time to revisit its sunny and colorful kitchen, the kind that can brighten the dreariest of mornings.
The kitchen is small but highly practical. All the essentials are stored out in the open, on open ash wood shelving designed by Ramsey. The built-ins are all custom, but luckily, most everything else is shoppable.
Let’s take a tour. Then scroll down to steal the look.
