With jewelry as insanely gorgeous as Lana’s, can you imagine what her home looks like? Spoiler alert: it’s just as insanely gorgeous because it was designed by Lana Bramlette herself.
Want to see for yourself? You’re in. The March/April 2019 issue of Sophisticated Living magazine gives us an inside peek of her Lincoln Park home in all it’s edgy-cool glamour.
Here are some highlights from the article:Adding to the high-fashion vibe? Lana lounges about her digs modeling some killer designer looks from Halpern, Monique Lhuillier and of course, Lana Jewelry
Shine like a diamond.
Like her jewelry, Bramlette knew she wanted the setting to be bright and simple with a Miami vibe—Lana’s favorite place to escape and design— so that the furniture and accessories could shine centerstage like a flawless diamond on a solitary gold band. Architecturally speaking, the home’s lines are contemporary, with white walls and white marble throughout providing a clean canvas for her decor. The kitchen, for example, Bramlette’s favorite room in the house, is floor-to-ceiling marble.
“My husband was 100 percent against it, but I always win. It’s not practical, but it’s beautiful.”
Bramlette avoided another argument by having the entire house painted while [her husband] Rob was out of town. She chose a shimmering white with hints of glitter…And as you walk throughout the house, the walls do indeed seem to sparkle, an effect that complements the custom glass staircase and balcony off of the living room.
But don’t expect to see family photos peppered throughout the house. While they do display a lot of photography—mostly celebrity fashion and rock ’n’ roll themed pieces sourced from Sonic Prints and Getty Images—Bramlette purposely chose pieces that reflect who the family is without invading their privacy.
“The photography we do display speaks to both my husband and I, and to [my daughter] Blake, in a cool, more conceptual way.”
Art imitates life.
In the living room, an advertisement Lana Jewelry created for Neiman Marcus is blown up to epic proportions, showcasing one of the brand’s best-selling collections of all-time, the Gloss collection. There’s also a pink neon sign of the Luck n’ Love slogan on a wall in the dining room that reflects onto the Swarovski crystals of an opulent chandelier.
“Everything in the house is a reminder of what my family has built together,” says Bramlette. “It’s a global brand that was started from scratch by two people who fell in love. But I also like to look at pretty things at all times, otherwise I get a bit depressed.”
Accessories are everything.
Said pretty things include a modular tufted royal blue sectional in the family room from ModShop in Los Angeles that’s covered with a rainbow of Missoni pillows—“I definitely have a Missoni pillow problem. It’s become an addiction,” laughs Bramlette—an impressive collection of coffee table tomes from Assouline and Taschen, high-back royal blue velvet chairs in the kitchen, and marble trays she scored from Houzz.
“You can always look perfect in a pair of jeans, a black tee and booties, but once you start adding jewelry, that’s when you’re differentiating yourself,” says Bramlette. “It’s the same in a home: The accessories are the stars.”
