Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas

British singer Leona Lewis is selling her Los Angeles house for $2,500,000. She bought this beautiful house back in September of 2009  for$1,850,000 and it seems that the three times Grammy winner has changed her plans about staying in Hollywood Hills.

If you’re a fan of a beautiful voice, you’re probably a fan of Leona, or at least can appreciate her success through real talent, so rare to find in the music department these days. She’s been a vegetarian since age twelve and started being famous since 2006 when she won the British X Factor and became one of Simon Cowell’s favorite voices. Later, she signed a multi-million dollar contract with legendary music producer Clive Davis.

Leona Lewis’ house was built in 1999, measures 3,946 square feet and includes 4 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. A paver-stone motor court separates the main house from a guest house that sits above a detached one-car garage. There’s also a beautiful pool for the sunny days. The house was totally renovated soon after she bought it.

I wonder why she has decided to sell it so soon after buying it and renovating it all. Did she get tired of all the white? Is she moving back to the UK or trying to find a better place in LA? What do you think?

 

 

Then

Leona’s old flat in Hackney where her ex-boyfriend electrician Lou Al-Chamaa lives.

Now

This is where Leona Lewis lives, but not for too long.

Aerial Photo

The house seems to be very private.

Gated

This house is located in a gated community.

Dining Room/Foyer

The walls and most of the furniture of this house are white. You tell me if you like it.

Crying for Decor

I think Leona wanted this room to be her inspiration room for her music. That’s the only explanation I can find to not decorate this beautiful living room. I love the chandelier and the iron staircase. This room has so much potential.

Kitchen

Yet another room that was totally renovated when Leona bought this house. This kitchen used to have an old Mediterranean feel.

Like it or Not?

Do you like this kitchen?

Family Room

It has an old-world charm and I think it feels really cozy.

Arches

This house has so many rooms with beautiful arches. That’s a positive for me.

Upstairs

From an interior designer point of view, I think this bookcase is not correctly centered and should not be used as a linen closet. It’s for books or accessories.

Master Bedroom

I can see a romantic side of Leona here. This is my favorite place in this house. I love the little balcony off the bedroom.

Master Bathroom

I really like the mirrors and the chandelier.

Guest Bedroom

Maybe she doesn’t like having many guests over, or maybe she didn’t have a good interior designer, but this bedroom needs help. It would be so easy to fix.

Second Guest bedroom

I like the ceiling, but overall this room feels very “blah”.

Pool

I think this is the selling point of this house.

So, what you think of Leona Lewis’ house? Did you like it or do you think it should have more color? I can’t wait to hear from you!

I hope you guys had a great weekend. We tried a new restaurant and it was a big disappointment. Don’t you just hate that? There’s this new place in town I wanted to try for a while because a friend of mine mentioned saying it was pretty good. We go there, not only my husband didn’t like but also my kids. It was a place where you’d expect the best from, but even the bread seemed to be 2 days old. I felt so frustrated. What do you do when you go to restaurant that’s “supposed” to be good and turns out to be one big bad experience? Do you say something or never come back again? The worse part is getting that big bill at the end and feel like a fool for eating there! So, that was my weekend. But it’s okay… Now we know to never go back to that place ever again! Have you had a similar experience? Share!

Have a blessed week!

  1. Yes, on the house being blah but I like the chandeliers and the beautiful pool. I have indeed, gone to a restaurant where the food was off but it has been rare. I don’t go back.

  2. Hi Luciane, No… I am not loving this house. And funny but the kitchen is too white even for me (surprise!). Yes, I agree…so disappointing when you go somewhere where it is supposed to be so great (and especially if it is expensive) and it is not great.

    The place needs color and a some detail with furnishings and accessories. It does remind me of our place, so I can say it has huge potential! Just give me a few days with it and I will make it something that many of your followers would love….that it what I love about your blog…it inspires me to create or recreate a space….big hugs to you hubby and the kids! xxoox

  4. Ann said,

    I’m not really feeling the furniture nor the way the interiors are designed. But the property might be in a really good location, hence the price.

  5. The enchanted home said,

    Hum….there is no curb appeal but I hoped it would get better inside, sadly it did not. Its just not very appealing…there is no architectural integrity to the home, almost no moldings, interesting trim work, its very “blah”. There is not one room that excties me and it just appears to be a very “building spec” quality house and the furnishings don’t do it any justice. Not loving it…but wish her luck in finding someone who feels differently:)

    i like the dining room and the pool. Happy new week to you, Luciane

  7. Tiffany @ Savor Home said,

    Hmmm… I don’t like much about the house as is, but I think it has lots of potential. I usually like white kitchens, but this one is quite steril and cold me to me. I’d definitely warm up the space a bit…

    I’ll stick with the summer cottage inspiration house 🙂 This one does nothing for me….agree on the pool, that is about it. Have a great one! Kim

    Beautiful home, Luciane.
    I would like a little more color, but I could settle here.
    I hope that our week is off to a great start.

    I think the entire house is “blah”. Don’t get me wrong, even an all white house can be a stunner, but this is a dud. I hate seeing people with means that can’t get it together to beautify their surroundings. Maybe it isn’t important to her, that’s possible and absolutely her choice. To each their own, I suppose.

  11. michele@hellolovelyinc said,

    the house itself seems fine. but they should leave all those unflattering interior photos out of the listing! cold and very much looking like a rental.

    what a disappointment when a restaurant can’t deliver. you might want to call the manager, let them know about the experience and ask if they would like to try again to replace the meal.

    hugs.

    Maybe she never even lived here, or barely at all – between touring, vacationing, and living in London I think that explains why the house is painfully boring and the guest rooms are a joke. It was probably just her “crash pad” once in a while when she was in LA. Still, this doesn’t explain why the decorator went for “unappealing” instead of “simple.”

    This house is pretty awful..
    A disappointment…like your restaurant experience (Sorry).
    HUgs for a great week!

  14. Sharon said,

    Hello Luciane,

    I like the outside structure of the house and the pool, but not the inside. L.L. should’ve enlisted in your help with your decor services.

  15. Luciane at HomeBunch.com said,

    Oh, Sharon! You’re so sweet! Thank you! I’d be happy to help her! 🙂

    I lived in LA for 35 years… it’s not for everyone. This house? Typical nouveaux riche. Talent and money does not good taste make. Apparently it doesn’t help you to find a good Decorator either.

  17. Sheila Zeller said,

    The one thing I like about this house is it’s more reasonable size compared to so many of the grandiose homes of the R&F. But I have to agree with the ‘blah’ crowd – inspiration is not to be found here, at least not for me…

  18. Marianne {Style For Living} said,

    Hmmm… this one is very blah. She definitely needs to hire a designer. I agree with Alexandra, just because you have money does not mean you have good taste.

  19. Carmen Achados de Decoração said,

    Oi minha querida, tudo bem? Espero que sim, linda!

    Sabe o que eu amei nessa casa? A mesa quadrada com as cadeiras transparentes! meu sonho é ter uma mesa quadrada, mas aqui em casa não cabe! rsrs

    Ola Lu,

    Old bread?? No, that does not work. Sad…

    The house is pretty, I love her. She’s a great singer.
    Enjoy your week, my friend.

  21. Meera @ firstsense said,

    Nice house but lacking personality, I think. No soul there, despite all the money. I wonder where she’s moving!

    Ah, sorry to hear about your disappointing restaurant experience. I hate it when that happens. I used to just keep quiet before and simply never return, but now when I’m paying a lot of money and it doesn’t deliver, I speak to the manager to sort it out.
