Stunning Bungalow Transformation In L.A.

Today we’re touring a stunning bungalow transformation in Los Angeles. The house has 1212 square feet. The designer of this home is Shanty Wijaya.

Shanty loves to travel, and she draws inspiration from elements like a country’s flora and fauna, architecture, and culture.

Shanty and her company, ALLPRACE Homes in L.A., are always looking for a home that can use her expertise for restoration.

Her decision to take on the project of this nearly 100-year-old house was due to how much it meant for the former owner to have his childhood home restored.

Mirrors are another great way to open up a space since they reflect light and give an illusion of a bigger space.

Shanty says a great way to brighten up any living space is to incorporate white or light-colored walls.

She also says that accent lighting should show off your personal design style while creating a sense of warmth.

For a more inviting feel, rearrange your furniture so that nothing blocks the window. And choose pieces that are less bulky.

For a personalized touch, incorporate your favorite home fragrance.

A diffuser is highly effective in a small space and adds an element of luxury.

Plants bring vibrant, lush elements to your home and are natural mood-boosters.

Shop Boho-Style Chairs

This designer likes to add statement rugs for coziness and to tie together the room’s color palette.

Lots of thought went into the design of the outdoor elements and landscaping.

“Every element is taken care of when I work on a project,” Shanty said. “From managing the construction process to hand selecting the finishes.”

She brings in unexpected design elements and maximizes and reformats the layout. Then she builds out the landscaping and oversees the staging and photoshoot.

Her company strives to create an original, curated look in all its projects. She always wants the future homeowner to enjoy the benefits of a custom home experience.
