Leave it to a jewelry designer to have the edgiest house in town. After she and her husband, Pat, purchased their two-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath cottage in Pacific Palisades, L.A., Amanda Thomas, the mastermind behind accessories brand Luv Aj, averted her eyes and creative endeavors from ear cuffs and body chains to wide-plank wood floors and French doors. After four months of renovations and months of décor shopping, the couple created an open, airy, and hip home, which she aptly describes as a “love den,” thanks to its shag carpet accents, fireplace, bookshelves stacked with firewood, and romantic Moroccan accents.
