We’re heading to Los Angeles, to see the colorful home of acting couple Emmy Raver-Lampman and Daveed Diggs. Emmy and Daveed bought this new-built house in 2018 and together with designer Mandy Cheng did they turn this house into a personal ánd colorful home.
The modern farmhouse-style home is located in the San Fernando Valley neighborhood of Sherman Oaks and is designed to fully embrace the California indoor and outdoor lifestyle.
Thoughouth the home we see colorful design touches such as green kitchen cabinets, an ochre yellow sofa, and green wallpaper. But the home also features some subtle (vintage) bohemian accents. All of this create a fabulous home with many interesting design features.
One of Emmy’s design wishes was to have swing chairs hanging from the ceiling. Now she has two Serena & Lily rattan hanging chairs in the cozy sitting room with ochre yellow sofa. The room is decorated with baskets that Emmy found all over the world.
The star of this home is this green kitchen with black & white Clé Tile geometric backsplash. The custom kitchen cabinets are painted in a green shade by Dunn-Edwards.
Instead of upper cabinets they added a combination of shelves in this kitchen. And with such a large kitchen ánd a walk-in pantry you don’t need more storage space.
While the ground floor is one big open space, you can see clear seperate rooms in this space. The sitting/tv room floods into the dining room which is attached to the smaller sitting room with hanging chairs.
In true Californian style there is a great connection to the outdoors.
The dining room has an RH dining table and chairs from One Kings Lane. I love the wooden ceiling in this room to create a warmer look.
The space under the stairs is used the house the record collection of Daveed Diggs.
The staircase is decorated with large burlap coffee bags stamped with their contents’ countries of origin, which Emmy found at London’s Brick Lane market.
The staircase runner is made of several rugs that were sewn together.
The powder room has the Flavor Paper’s “Bay Area Toile” pattern. On the wallpaper you see silhouettes of iconic Bay Area celebrities.
The Monkey Room takes its name from the wonderul Cole & Son wallpaper of a forest scene, featuring monkeys, birds, and flora.
The home office’s black & white walls are painted by Emmy Raver-Lampman. The wooden desk is by West Elm.
The master suite has a boho touch and from the balcony you have a view over the mountains.
The master bathroom is luxurious with custom-made cabinets, a double sink, and a make-up table. Above the freestanding bath is a panoramic window overlooking the surrounding landscape.
The guest rooom has a custom mural by Feathr.
The modern backyard includes a sapphire pool with a Baja shelf, spa and waterfall feature, built-in lounge area, and bar with a custom fire feature, BBQ, and refrigerator.
