After getting a glimpse into Johnny Depp’s world we decided to review his former home he shared with Amber Heard, a penthouse loft in one LA’s most prominent historic landmarks the Eastern Columbia Building. Read on to see our interior design thoughts.

Entrance to the Home

Upon entering the inviting interior of the house, it is made clear that this house has been designed to accommodate even the most contrasting of guests – it is the epitome of comfort. The excellently selected furniture echoes somewhat of a country, yet contemporary feel, due to the sheepskin pillows and the rich mahogany floor. To our surprise, the designer chooses to take a leap of faith as they bravely decide to pair the warm aspects of the house with cool, industrial components, which range from stainless steel kitchen tops, red-brick walls and a large staircase.

Despite this being such an unusual pairing, these different aspects all work together to complement one another and ultimately build an enticing appearance.

Tall Modern Windows

Look to your right and you are greeted with the tall, modern windows which are cleverly lined with an eye-catching black frame, allowing them to stand out from the blank canvas that the walls create. The bright rays of light invade the room, revealing the details that hide in every corner of the room as they fight to make us aware of the futuristic side tables and lamps.

Colourful Sun Loungers

Upon walking outside, the decorative use of the natural environment quickly lures you towards the delightfully coloured sun-loungers which form a playful atmosphere. It is evident that the designer has found the perfect balance between comforting and thought provoking as the variety of different patterns form a sensory experience which is tamed by the neutral colours we see in the furniture.

Overall, we like the height of the space but find the industrial steel finishes a bit too much. We would change the kitchen cabinet doors to a painted finish and paint the air vent tube near the ceiling white so it doesn’t stand out so much, or integrate it into the wall if possible. We would change the blinds to a linen to soften the windows a bit. A feature wallpaper or different paint colour could be added to the high wall by the sofas to add interest. Overall, some more art and plants could be included in the space.
