In a pink tile kitchen of the 1970s during the pandemic, famous chef Ludovic Lefebvre could cook remotely with Selena Gomez, his family home had undeniably to make a substantial improvement. The gourmet from Las Angeles and his wife, lawyer, and business partner Krissy Lefebvre found it much more intensive than anticipated to know the hillside home they bought at the end of 2019.
After all, due to the constant lockdowns the couple spent much more time at home, so there were unexpected complications in the renovation process. However, the enthusiasm of the couple was not affected by the difficult conditions.
Houston-based Marie Flanigan and Melanie Hamel For the second time, Marie Flanigan Interiors worked with the couple to re-imagine the Spain Revival home of four bedrooms. “They’re so fun with Krissy and Ludo,” says Flanigan. “They add a great deal of personality and a distinct view of design.” The property has only been occupied by one family since it was built in 1973, designed by the Los Angeles architect Johannes Van Tilburg.
But Ludo considered the kitchen (obviously) to be highly personal. “I like my personal place. “I like it. I don’t have to see my couch or fireplace while I’m in the kitchen,” he says. The open plan and huge family island of his previous home he did not want to repeat.
Luca, Rêve, Ludo, and Krissy’s parents, 10 years old, knew what they could do alone. “The renovation deals with the preservation of bones because they are so gorgeous,” explains Krissy. During the 8 weeks of its autumn 2020 renovation, which is overseen by Patrick Ahounber of MODAA Construction, the floor plan remained consistent. The floors of the terra-cotta tile, the textured stucco surfaces, arches, and most of the iron forged chandeliers all shaped well.
A formidable hand-sculpted custom-constructed wooden board was perfectly laid down in the primary bedroom, which was made in 1973. The design team of Marie Flanigan finished it in a darker tone, to anchor the updated palette and still honor the history of the house. Krissy came from Akupanel’s Acoustic Art Concepts, adding a different dimension to the wall of one bedroom as a subtle homage to the Santa Monica Proper Hotel of Kelly Wearstler.
