Steal This Look: A Warm, Minimal Guest Bedroom in LA

February 26, 2019

Los Angeles–based costume designer Gordana Golubovic used her sourcing skills and eye for fabric and layout in designing her Spanish-style home in Los Feliz. The result? A quiet, personal space with tinted concrete, bleached wood, reupholstered Ikea furniture, and everything else sourced from favorite RM LA shops such as Lost & Found, Lawson Fenning, and County Ltd.

Here’s a look at the upstairs guest room and a list of sources both from Golubovic and a few alternatives for those pieces that are sold out or DIY-ed.

Photographs by Lauren Moore.
