    It only took one look at Rumi Neely's amazing home for us to see that the folks at Homepolish — the interior geniuses responsible for the fashion star's home makeover — know what they're doing. Whether it's a total renovation or finding the perfect finishing touches, Homepolish designers work by the hour to create balanced spaces that just work.

    Do you ever dream of a beachside home full of perfect vintage pieces and sunshine? So do we, and so did Homepolish designer Vanessa de Vargas. When it was time for a change, Vanessa knew she wanted to focus on sophisticated comfort and a great layout for hosting friends. A house four blocks from the beach begs for simple vibes and comfortable decor.

    Vanessa stuck to that credo while personalizing her space with metallic accents sprinkled around the bungalow. As a furniture designer and interiors master, she has the knack for properly utilizing spaces and items on a budget (often with custom pieces). Many of her purchases are actually sourced from vintage markets — she refurbished the zebra-print chairs herself! Those chairs, a comfy couch, gold highlights, well-hung art, and an all-white backdrop make this home the perfect place to lounge around after a day well spent on the Venice boardwalk.
