This Insanely Chic L.A. Home Will Give You Goosebumps

Most of you would be familiar with Ginny Macdonald's work under the impressive design umbrella of Emily Henderson, but now the talented young designer has branched out on her own, and we're so glad she did. In fact, we think Macdonald is one of the best new interior designers to watch. She has perfected the art of the modern traditional mix, balancing the conventional with the uncommon and a youthful flair.

Case in point: this Valley Village home in Los Angeles. It has a contemporary approach with a traditional touch and a pinch of California cool without straying too far into boho territory. Perhaps its Macdonald's British roots, but this 1929 home certainly evokes the style of a charming English cottage. "The clients wanted the house to feel charming and sensitive to the era it was built, but they also wanted it to feel modern, fresh and cool," she says. "They are a young family, so didn't want it to feel stuffy and closed-in as it previously was."

Macdonald tells us the house was completely remodeled in 2016, including the kitchen, two bathrooms, master bedroom, living room, dining room and loft space. Take the tour and discover her style notes along the way.
