My LA: Designer Shannon Wollack of Studio Life.Style
See the City of Angels through Shannon's educated eye.
Since getting its start in 2009, West Hollywood-based design firm Studio Life. Style has quietly become a leading proponent of California style today. Founder Shannon Wollack and her partner, principal designer Brittany Zwickl, have crafted a portfolio of hip homes for Hollywood types and family retreats farther afield (like this gorgeous home in La Quinta), as well as cool commercial projects like Sugar Paper in Brentwood, the Little Market in the Palisades, and Facile skincare in Pasadena. It’s no wonder they were tapped by Hilary Duff to help with the redesign of her LA home. (You can see the Better Homes & Gardens feature here.) This week, we’ve asked Shannon to take us around “her” LA—read on for her list of the people and places that should be on your radar, too.
Arts & Culture
The Marciano Art Foundation, because it’s small and intimate. The Pantages Theatre—it’s an old, beautiful building. A throwback to the best performances in LA and the closest you can get to New York. And the Hollywood Bowl. It’s quintessential Los Angeles: Old Hollywood, outdoors and family friendly.
Brentwood. I love the community aspect and that it’s family friendly, in addition to having great restaurants and shopping. We end up spending most of our time at the Brentwood Country Mart.
On Giving Back
The girls at This is About Humanity are near and dear to us! We try to be as involved as possible by hosting trips down to the border and by raising money for the foundation. We also work closely with the Violence Intervention Program by hosting their bi-annual events as well as raising money for the foundation. We love being hands on with both.
