As the worlds of fashion and interior design become more intertwined than ever, our new series takes you inside the stylish homes of men and women with a real eye for design. Next up is Barry's Bootcamp CEO Joey Gonzalez and his airy villa in West Hollywood.
Gonzalez bought the property in 2016 for his parents. The bright, Mediterranean-inspired home, available to rent via One Fine Stay, was influenced by Gonzalez's Italian mother, who - since moving to Chicago - has dreamt of a warm climate with indoor and outdoor living. The couple were inspired by Spanish colonial architecture, combining baroque elements with modernity, reflected in the white stucco exterior, wood beams and ornate tiling.
Here. Gonzales talks us though his interiors influences, from key pieces to colour concepts.
The Dining Room
"The washed blues and greys of the dining room, mixed with the ironwork and wood were inspired by the Andalusian coast."
The Sitting Room
"This shot illustrates the circulation of air throughout the home. At the far end, the front courtyard opens to the dining area, which flows all the way through the kitchen and family room out onto the pool."
The Sitting Room
"This perspective shows the completion of the flow."
"The kitchen was designed to feel wide open and clean. You can see the kitchen from every single communal room and it is truly where all parts of the home intersect."
The Living Room
"One of my favourite rooms - the living room. The vaulted ceilings mimic the arched window which we redid in a contemporary black steel. What you can't see, is that behind the photographer, the old original wooden arched window was converted into a mirror and hangs directly opposite the new window. It's an amazing room that juxtaposes the style of the 1920s with a touch of 21st century."
"The backyard is truly California. We optimised space with a perfectly sized pool, which left room to plant a garden of herbs and vegetables to the right (not pictured). The design is meant to serve as a space to entertain as well as functionally serve its homeowner."
The Master Bedroom
"The master is meant to feel outdoors. Not only does it feature an accordion sliding door which removes the wall between outside and in, you can actually see several elements from the comfort of your bed: water, fire, and earth."
The Master Bathroom
"We call this bathroom 'shabby chica', because the obviously Spanish design included combined new items that were distressed to achieve the appearance of antique."
The Entrance Level Bathroom
"We thought it would be nice to pay homage to the era of when the home was originally built, by embracing the art deco style with a splash of luxury and pinch of glamour."
