Take a sneak peek at the Apartment Theory article.
Actors Bitsie and David have spent the bulk of the past few years filming the television show Grimm and living most of the year in woodsy, sometimes-foggy Portland, Oregon. With Grimm finished, the pair are happy to have a new sunny Hollywood Hills home to spend time in. They found this large house that had been sitting on the market for some time, and Bitsie theorizes it may have been because of poor paint and decor choices. She reports there were ugly light fixtures, rooms painted in shades of brown, and a once-lovely kitchen sporting yellow and green hues. “I think they were going for some French country vibe, but it’s a Spanish house and it didn’t work,” she writes. Undeterred, Bitsie was able to see the potential for their own design and color ideas.
Thankfully, bad paint colors aside, the house didn’t need any major renovations. So when Bitsie applied her and David’s style in the form of new paint and lighting, the house’s gorgeous Spanish architecture was able to shine.
The house is large, but still offers inspiration for homes of any size, thanks to the couple’s appreciation of budget finds and DIY ideas. Updating all the lighting for an entire house isn’t cheap, so the couple went for stylish fixtures at mid-range stores like West Elm and Pottery Barn. Bitsie’s a fan of reusing what you already have, so she spray painted the master bedroom’s existing curtain rods when they didn’t vibe with the room’s new wall paint color.
Complemented by the couple’s mix of mid-century modern furniture—and an impressive art collection—the house is quite a breezy, sunny oasis. Although, something outside the house might grab the most attention: Their home is surrounded by tall luscious greenery and their view of the Hollywood Hills is a great reminder of what they love about living in L.A.
