Crafty Creatives

Husband and wife Anica and Jonpaul Douglass bring their photography and design talents back home in their well-curated Los Angeles space.

Clean But Warm Minimalism

Light oak wood is a favorite feature of Anica and Jonpaul Douglass’s home design. That unfussy minimalism featured in their home really gives key details like this credenza and contemporary photograph at the top of the stairs more impact. Natural wood brings a warmth to a space that might otherwise read as too cold and stark.

Neutrals and Pastels

A refined color palette of neutrals and soft pastels gives Anica and Jonpaul Douglass’s home a cohesive look. Their pug Stella reigns from her pillow perch on the couch. Among her many accomplishments, Anica runs a regular Los Angeles Pug Meet Up.

Light and Airy Modern Kitchen

“Light oak wood is our kryptonite,” says Anica. That light wood balances beautifully with the white walls in the couple’s Los Angeles home, and provides continuity between the rooms in this open floor plan.

Clean and Simple Dining

The pony with a pizza art is by photographer Jonpaul and makes for great dining room punctuation and an amazing conversation piece.

Perfectly Matte

One of the reasons Anica and Jonpaul’s design works so well is they keep it simple with matte objects and streamlined artwork that all work in harmony to create a cohesive look.

A Magnetic Attraction

Another lesson in keeping it simple and paring back is on display here. High design doesn’t have to cost a fortune. It’s all about paring back and only highlighting objects in your house that you truly love as with this well-curated group of photos and mementos on the couple's fridge.

Add Color with Plants

Green plants are all this subdued palette needs to add warmth and color.

Outdoor Cacti

Coordinated containers and a high whimsy factor in these vertical cacti keep even Anica and Jonpaul’s outdoor design scheme looking chic.

Oversized Mirror

An overized mirror really enlarges this bedroom.

Clutter-free Beside Table

Jonpaul and Anica’s home is a compelling argument for keeping things orderly and neat. This bedside table keeps it simple with a fragrant candle and a plant. All other necessities can be hidden away in the bedside table drawer.

Art With Attitude

A funky artisanal wall hanging is all this workspace needs for a touch of edgy attitude (oh, and a ceramic pug to amp up the fun factor).

Bookshelf Tableau

The necessities of life: plants, art and an L.A. city guide make this bookshelf tableau a study in thoughtful simplicity.

Pony Photograph

Jonpaul’s pony photograph commands pride of place in this hip couple’s creative home.

Pug Palace

Stella, chilling out in her favorite spot.

Cacti Chic

Handmade pottery with its rugged, earthy feel makes for the perfect vessel for these cacti.

Flea Market Accessories

Plants, art and artisanal ceramics and pottery picked up at the Rose Bowl Flea Market are all constants in the Douglass’s design scheme.

Details Count

While some clutter up their coffee table with oversized shelter books and tchotchkes, the Douglass’s table—and pretty much every facet of their home—is a study in minimalist cool.
