Making a rental truly feel like home takes talent. Unable to make major changes to the space—be it paint colours, wall fixtures, or any desired renovations—you have to hone in on the ways you can show your creativity—curating special pieces, styling each element, and crafting a certain synergy that brings both fresh life and a lived-in feel to your home. Interior designer and former MyDomaine senior editor Liz Foster has done exactly that with her two-bedroom apartment in Santa Monica's Ocean Park neighbourhood. With carefully curated vintage finds that speak to her approachable yet sophisticated style, Foster has transformed her 950-square-foot home four blocks from the beach into a bright, lively space working in a neutral palette punctuated by gorgeous pops of colour. Head below to tour the bright, art-filled Santa Monica home of interior designer Liz Foster and she what she has to say about the space.
