Inside The Home of One Kings Lane's Susan Feldman

The home decor merchant mastermind shares her Hollywood Hills home and secrets to creating the perfect living space.

THE DOSSIER: NAME: Susan Feldman. TRADE: Co-founder and Chief Merchandising Officer of One Kings Lane. VIBE: Warm and cozy, but steeped in style. ABODE: Traditional 1930's Hollywood Hills home in Los Angeles, California. It seems only fitting that one of the masterminds behind the addictive shopping site One Kings Lane would have a home that's the stuff of décor dreams. Susan Feldman and her family fell in love with the Hollywood Hills house the moment they stepped through the door. "We were like, this is it! The house just has really great bones and a certain kind of warmth to it," she says. With some help from interior designer and friend Kenneth Brown (and her OKL shopping habit), Feldman filled the space with pieces that reflect her eclectic, vintage-meets-contemporary aesthetic, and created that cozy, inviting vibe that suits her love for entertaining friends and family. ENTERTAINING AN IDEA After living in Manhattan, Feldman wanted space to entertain--and though the house had plenty of party potential, she realized with a little creativity, she could have a range of versatile venues. "I can fit about fourteen people in the dining room, but almost two years into living in the house I realized we have this sunroom area that I could remove the furniture from and put in two or three tables instead--last year I sat 30 people there for Thanksgiving." BUILD CHARACTER When it came to decorating the space, Feldman embraced her décor mantra: design is never done. Starting with a more neutral, classic look she layered in decorative accessories to bring color, texture, and character to the rooms. Feldman also filled the space with items she's brought back from her travels, adding "I usually don't come back from a trip without buying some unique, interesting box. You can never have too many accessories, so you can keep buying them and changing things up." COMPLIMENTARY COLORS  "I have this theory that you should decorate with colors that you look and feel good in, like with clothing," Feldman says of picking the palette for the home's interior. And, as with dressing, she identified what her walls would be wearing before she started adding accents. "Its great to do the wall colors and the floor and window treatments first, and then everything else kind of comes along with that."
