It only takes one glance at Anine Bing to figure out that the fashion designer has style to spare. When we shot her airy and bright Spanish-style Los Angeles home, she greeted us in black vintage jeans, a vintage Bing tee, and black patent boots—chic. As it turns out, her sartorial prowess also extends to interior design. Her home, a Spanish revival home tucked in a leafy Los Angeles suburb, is an elegant mix of periods and styles—channeling a certain effortless bohemia that's harder to achieve than it appears.
Bing's décor recipe may appear mysterious, but it isn't without a pattern. Wrought iron lighting is often paired with iconic midcentury furniture and washed-out vintage Oushak rugs. She has a penchant for black-and-white photography of Brigitte Bardot. She loves ornate vintage mirrors and brass accessories.

Anine Bing's airy Spanish-style home opens up to a large entryway adorned with an oversize Louis Philippe mirror paired with a small Barcelona bench by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. A wrought iron double hook hangs on the wall. Given the arched walkways typical to Spanish-style homes, it's fitting to add a mirror with a similar arch.
