Jenni Kayne's Home in Los Angeles
Just a quick peek at who Jenni Kayne is…Jenni Kayne launched her eponymous label in 2003 at the tender age of 19. Her refined yet edgy sportswear quickly built her a favorable reputation. In 2007 she opened her first retail boutique in West Hollywood.
Jenni Kayne applies the signature laid-back aesthetic of her popular fashion brand to a striking contemporary house in Los Angeles.
In the living room, a fireplace surround made of board-formed concrete anchors the space, while reclaimed-oak beams frame the glass walls and salvaged-pine siding lines the ceiling; the pendant lamp is by Treasurbite Design, the artworks are by Alison Van Pelt, and the throw is by Hermès.
A vintage Eames chair and ottoman sit next to the custom-made walnut bed in the master suite, which is distinguished by reclaimed-oak ceiling trusses; the half-dome hanging light is by JF Chen, the large painting is by Van Pelt, and the watercolor portrait to its right is by Kim McCarty.
Kayne and Ehrlich purchased the property, a five-bedroom residence in Beverly Hills, six years ago. Enticed by its scale and proportions, they undertook a gut renovation to erase problematic details that loudly proclaimed the structure’s early-1980s vintage, such as unnecessary 45-degree angles and overabundant stainless-steel accents.
The Family Room is designed with clean lines and wide, open spaces, Kayne’s digs have a distinctly modern feel, but natural elements like wood ceilings and reclaimed-oak beams keep it warm and welcoming.
The children in their playroom; the cabinets were custom made by Standard, and the baskets are by Roost from Jenni Kayne.
On the rear terrace, Summit Furniture armchairs are upholstered in a Perennials outdoor fabric. Landscape architect Pamela Burton conceived the grounds.
