Galina Sobolev’s Los Angeles Home

Galina Sobolev’s dress line, Single, has been worn by A-list celebrities like Eva Mendes, Katy Perry and Eva Longoria. Naturally, her Los Angeles home exudes style. “I love luxury for the home,” she says. “I used a lot of natural silks, and my drapes are mostly silk velvet, which I find is soft and very sexy. We have cashmere blankets and Hermes cashmere pillows everywhere.”

Staircase

A grand staircase with a dramatic chandelier sets a luxurious tone for the home.

Fireplace

When decorating her home, Galina was inspired by the comfort of modern hotels such as the W and Four Seasons. “I love the idea of dark African wood floors mixed with a color and a touch of whimsy created by such great talents as Philippe Starck,” she says.

Family-Friendly Kitchen

Galina says her kitchen is her family’s hangout space. “We love it and spend quite a bit of time in it,” she says. “It is a family gathering place, and is the spot where my husband and his friends who love to cook do their Sunday cook-outs.”

Kitchen

“The kitchen was designed by my husband – I only make salads!” Galina says. “However, the design of the cabinets and the details of the appliances I had 100 percent input in. The backsplash is made of metal chips in stainless steel, and set up in a modern brick pattern.”

Dining Room

Rich textures – such as the red crocodile wall in the dining room – are a major element in Galina’s home decor.

Artwork

“I love a pop of color in a room, whether it is an accent wall, or it is done through accessories,” Galina says. A bold piece of pop artwork serves as an eye-catching focal point above this fireplace.

Lighting

Delicate yet glamorous pendant lights illuminate the room.

Bathroom

Galina’s master suite features a spa-like bathroom with a one-of-a-kind tub. “It is by Pinaforini and was made in the factory that makes Ferraris,” she says. “There are only four of them in all of the U.S.!”

Patio

The fashion designer’s property encompasses an acre on Mount Olympus in Los Angeles. “We have a stunning view of L.A. city lights, and on a clear day all the way downtown,” Galina says.
