Merging distinct creative approaches, Studio Life.style makes interiors magic

The West Hollywood design firm Studio Life.Style has kept a relatively low profile since its start in 2009, quietly building a portfolio of California-cool interiors, both residential (for young, hip industry types and Westside families) and commercial (modish boutiques such as Brentwood’s Sugar Paper). But partners Shannon Wollack and Brittany Zwickl are due for a bigger spotlight in 2018 with an array of high-profile projects including Hilary Duff’s Beverly Hills home (a mix of “feminine, eclectic and playful,” says Wollack) and a new open-air cocktail spot, The Fountain Bar, at The Grove in Los Angeles.

Introduced by a mutual friend eight years ago—and on a roll ever since—Wollack and Zwickl are strong designers in their own right. “Brittany brings a technical background and is extremely detail-oriented,” says Wollack, who founded the firm. “And she’s the nice one,” she adds. Zwickl praises her cohort’s confidence and strategic thinking. Their signature look blends midcentury furnishings with clean polished lines, sumptuous textures and pops of colorful vintage finds—a seductive formula which will soon be on full display in a modern hacienda in Cabo San Lucas, an outpost of upscale skincare center Facile in Pasadena, and a contemporary sustainable home in Laurel Canyon. “Our partnership adds depth to a space,” says Zwickl. “The balance works.” 424-302-0773; studio-lifestyle.com.
