I always wonder what it must be like to be a bonafide designer and work on your own space — is it more stressful? easier to source the perfect pieces? just as confusing? probably all of the above! With her tranquil Echo Park dwelling, Homepolish designer Melanie Burstin proves that it’s definitely just as stylish. From finding the perfect balance of minimalism and accessorized to nailing the “warm and comfortable” vibe, Melanie definitely hit her stride in the 650 square foot home.

She told Domino, “My style is modern and minimal, but warm. It’s really important to me that a space feels chic and exciting, but comfortable and inviting. I think, in design, I’m a minimalist—but probably not in other aspects of my life (for example, my wardrobe). Every friend of mine who comes over and sees my home comments on how my bedroom inspires them to want to get rid of all their belongings and furniture. That wasn’t my intention, but I really wanted it to feel relaxing, and like a retreat. For me, that means less is more.”
