JDP Interiors Infuses Character into a West Hollywood Bachelor Pad

The living room pairs a custom-made sofa upholstered in Rogers & Goffigon fabric with a bespoke coffee table designed by JDP Interiors and made by Spivak Designs. The rug is a vintage Oushak rug from Lawrence of La Brea Rugs. Photography by Jeff Mindel.

Joyce Downing Pickens of JDP Interiors looked to chic Los Angeles design boutiques, The Apartment by The Line and Garde, as well as her client’s collection of surrealist art for inspiration when piecing together the design of this 2,421-square-foot bachelor pad in West Hollywood. The home, a new construction, lacked character, so Pickens sought to insert a fresh sense of style and character throughout by adding statement lighting and mixing vintage furniture finds with customized pieces. Choosing pieces that “complimented and infused subtle surrealist notions,” and setting everything against a neutral backdrop, Pickens expertly juxtaposes delicate pieces with chunkier ones for unexpected pairings that seem perfectly balanced. “I love to incorporate warmth into modern spaces by adding texture and mixing materials such as leather, metal, and fur,” she said. “Mixing in unique furniture finds and sourcing vintage pieces also really helped bring this project to life.”

Key pieces like a Flag Halyard chair by Rove Concepts and vintage items sourced on 1stdibs and from flea markets help create a sense of character that the home had been lacking. Photography by Jeff Mindel.
