Madeline Stuart has long been a leader in the Los Angeles design community and has made an international name for herself with her sophisticated home designs. Her company has been listed in the AD100 since 2001 – the same year that Forbes named her one of the best interior designers at West Coast. In 2010, Madeline was listed as one of the top 25 designers in the country in the inaugural edition of Elle Décor’s A-List.
Stuart‘s design firm, Madeline Stuart Associates, is known for both interior design and architectural restoration and remodeling, with a focus on repairing damages in properties caused by time or carelessness.
HOLLYWOOD REGENCY, LOS ANGELES
Be welcome to an epic home! Every single detail takes our breath away. Designed by the very respected architect John Woolf, this home is a marvelous tribute to the Hollywood Regency Style.
A dreamy living room that enhances the original style of the house. We have mixed but good feelings about this space: we want to sit on the couch with a really good book, enjoying the natural light coming from the large windows, and at the same time all the greenery we see from outside makes us want to get to know the outdoors right away.
No sooner said than done, we jumped to this gorgeous garden and what comes to our mind immediately is that this space seems an art piece, a frame, something we would stare at all day. Do you feel the same?
The library is highlighted by hand-painted wall panels and features Madeline‘s custom cane-backed Hamilton Sofa. Perfectly and skillfully composed, the multi-layered interiors of Madeline Stuart are firmly rooted in the great design fundamentals of scale, proportion, balance and, above all, beauty.
CASA CASERIO, SANTA BARBARA
This historic bungalow in Santa Barbara, California, was renovated by Madeline with a simple idea in mind – weekend getaways to share with her husband, writer Steve Oney. And it is one of our most loved projects from her, maybe because she took her identity genuinely inside the home and we love how it looks like!
In the inviting living room, you can see her Parson Russell terrier – Mr. Peabody – resting on a Madeline Stuart Collection sofa.
Despite loving all the interiors of this home, we fell in love with the outdoor environment. The garden was designed having in mind a series of rooms that lead us up to a fireplace area that features vintage rattan furniture and a custom stone table. A perfect spot for cocktails and conversation any time of the day!
How about dining at dusk under the newly constructed pergola? Now we understand why Madeline is always so attentive to details before getting into the big picture, the outcome is so worth it!
Because of her meticulous attention to detail, Madeleine Stuart is one of the most talented and prominent personalities in the design world and an outstanding tastemaker living in Los Angeles.
Madeline Stuart is brilliant when it comes to taking her elegance to her projects. Every single thing you see inside a home has her classy and refined identity. And that never goes out of style! Every detail counts and that’s why the big picture always looks so phenomenal!
