There’s no mistaking Demi Lovato’s Los Angeles home for anyone else’s, with eclectic furnishings and playful rooms that reflect the singer-songwriter’s dynamic personality.

“It’s completely different, the last house I had for myself, because I didn’t have a vision for it,” Lovato told Architectural Digest in a web exclusive of the 8,500-square-foot modern farmhouse she bought in 2020. It was an empty, white, minimalist but comfortable house… I loved living there, but at the same time I felt empty.’

This time, Lovato collaborated with Argyle Design founders Kat Bell and James Drew, who helped fill the home with fun and stylish touches, such as Rania Peet’s color-changing wallpaper hanging below a psychedelic Jen Stark wallpaper. enormous cloud lamp. .

“I was in a place where I wanted everything in my house to be super trippy,” Lovato said. “I wanted it to be kind of psychedelic and super vibey, but I also wanted it to have a good host energy when I have people over.”

Bell has named a few unexpected items, such as butt vases, breast-shaped salt and pepper shakers, and even mushroom-shaped stools, as “LOL moments” to be found among the maximalist interior aesthetic.

Lovato enlisted the help of Eva Seta, director of communications at the Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles, to align her home with the work of artists from underrepresented communities.

In the Gucci Lilies-wallpapered kitchen, a painting of a figure’s legs by Lilian Martinez hangs in the designated breakfast nook, while Yasmine Nasser Diaz’s “Truth or Dare” draws attention to the dining room.

“I wanted it to be a very strange environment,” the singer said. “There’s also a lot of female empowerment, so keeping pieces that are representative of the female image was really important to me. We live in a world that shuts you out from honoring women’s bodies, so I want it to be on your face. My home.”

Evidence of Lovato’s rock and roll sensibility permeates the home. In the master bedroom, Atra’s elegant Beluga chairs (where his guitar rests) sit next to a silver-bronze cheetah. The “Glam Room” becomes the perfect get-ready area, stocked with a bowl of hair salon shampoo and decorated with a neon sign that says, “You’re never fully dressed without a smile.” They even turned the swimming pool into a recording studio, and it was there that he conceptualized his latest album.”Holy Fvck”, according to the publication.

The spacious six-bedroom home also has plenty of relaxing spaces, including an outdoor kitchen, hot tub, fire pit, secluded patio, and a yard with her beloved Yorkipoos, Batman and Cinderella, to romp around.

Delighted with how comfortable it was, Lovato said, “I have no reason to leave, this is everything I wanted in a house.”
