Step Inside Our Very Own L.A. Editor's Eclectic Apartment

Wait! Before you jump right into the glorious snaps of our L.A. editor's swanky mid-city home, here's a bit of background: The Omaha, Nebraska native hightailed it to SoCal over ten years ago, not knowing a single soul (USC was the number two journalism school in the U.S., at that time). Since then, Brenna Egan has been a busy bee, working with some of the biggest names in the biz, all while looking nothing short of fabulous in sky-high heels and wild frocks.
Fast-forward to 2012: While her wardrobe is pretty telling of her personality ("off-the-wall, bonkers, eccentric"), her abode is a bit, well, eclectic. Stunning chandeliers (which she hopes to hang in her granddaughter's home someday) and a custom-made Louis Vuitton daybed sit alongside flea-bought tchotchkes and overcrowded inspiration boards. But, with a new rock on her finger (Mazel tov!) the single gal is ready to say buh-bye to her bachelorette pad, and hello to a new spot for her, her soon-to-be hubby, and their rescue pup Mick Jagger.

Before she relocates (Venice folks, keep your eyes peeled!), Apartment Therapy snapped some pics for all of those in need of major décor inspiration. Unless, of course, you consider yourself a minimalist, then prepare for something a tad unsettling.
And, don't forget to visit Apartment Therapy to see the entire spread, including Egan's collection of miniature owls!

"Up to this point, I've worked backwards — I've just bought items that I felt passionate about and then attempted to make them all blend (or purposefully not blend) together."

"To be perfectly honest, I've never been that girl devouring tear sheets and décor books (well, I love to ogle, but the implementation never happens with my insane schedule). I like to just do what moves me in all aspects of my life. My whimsical approach would probably make a decorator go insane!"

Brenna's puppy, Mick Jagger! In case you're wondering, she thinks he's a Cavalier King Charles-Dachsund mix (he was a hot dog last year for Halloween!).

"The inspiration boards in my office have become such Hoarderville, they do just the opposite of sparking ideas. Panic-attack central! But, please don't misread me, I'm so grateful for what I have, and the oddball eye I've been blessed with. It's just finding the time (someone please tell me when?) to make it feel more whole."

"Even though I've lived in my apartment for five years, I've always had this nomadic sensibility like I could be moving any minute. I guess that's a total twentysomething comment!"

"I like to joke that my overall style is like Anita Pallenberg meets Phyllis Neffler (of Troop Beverly Hills), but I don't think I could ever truly categorize my look because it's ever changing depending on my gravitational pull towards a specific piece!"
