This Los Angeles Airbnb Pop-Up Stands Out with Eclectic Moroccan Details
Take a peek inside this compact space with lovely details that you'd want to have in your own home, too
Located in the heart of Los Angeles’ Art District, this Airbnb Pop-Up home by Justina Blakeney pulls inspiration from East L.A., North Africa, and American actress Lake Bell. The tiny house features aluminum sidings and a Moroccan theme of bold colors and interesting geometric patterns. Aside from the beautiful design, what makes the house truly special is the fact that it was actually curated by and collaborated with Lake and her mom, designer Robin Bell.
The pop-up consists of one living pod which houses the bedroom and peppered with interesting pieces of furniture. An entire wall features sliding glass doors that bring in plenty of natural light.
Off to one side is the entrance made of more glass doors that open out to the side deck and a separate pod for the bathroom.
The bed itself is a Moroccan beauty. The dark brown frame of the bed and the headboard highlight intricate details that complement the bed linens chosen by the designer. While the canopy adds to the lavish feel of the space, the accent wall that features orange geometric patterns plays off the light from the glass doors really well.
Blakeney added pieces that pay tribute to the different cultural communities around the area. The metallic origami-shaped chair is a nod to the nearby Little Tokyo area, while the floral tray is a reference to the Latino community.
A play of geometric patterns can also be appreciated outdoors. Moroccan tables were strategically placed within the area to give the people outside a feel of what to expect inside. The Bougainvillea trees add more color to the space and give it a refreshing vibe.
The eclectic Moroccan pop-up is part of Airbnb’s "Hello LA," a hospitality experience which highlighted the most interesting people, places, and events in Los Angeles back in 2013.
