You have your keys to a new home and ideas abound. What next? We’ve compiled a list of who’s who from interior design to home decor. Be creative, be inspired, or buy a set like I did which sounded easier. Maybe you want your home to look just like Jimmy Kimmel’s so you swing by Consort for some gear. Maybe you’re more NorCal at heart (shh) so you swing by Marin Countyesque Serena & Lily. Antique lighting, nouveau chandeliers, boutique rugs and much more await. You’ve got your work cut out for you new renters, have fun with it! Please feel free to email us or leave comments so we can expand the list.

They’re go-tos for A-listers like Jessica Alba and Jimmy Kimmel, and now the Consort interior-design duo, Brandon Quattrone and MyDomaine’s Mat Sanders, are bringing their playful and chic style to you. With partner Marie Goble, they filled their new shop with Consort custom furniture (including the ‘80s-inspired bed on our cover)as well as vintage and new finds. Also look for souvenir-perfect items like locally made ceramics and a brass sculpture of a hand flipping the bird. 6918 Melrose Ave., L.A., 323.930.5688.

RH Modern Gallery
In a move that speaks to L.A.’s design cred, juggernaut Restoration Hardware picked West Hollywood for the site of its first freestanding RH Modern Gallery, home to the brand’s new line of modern furniture.

Serena & Lily
A little bit preppy, a little bit Cali, Serena & Lily pieces are as fresh as an ocean breeze. The Sausalito-based lifestyle brand’s first L.A. design shop sports a textile-swatch wall that inspires you to mix and match colors and patterns, as well as original art, bedding, select furniture pieces and much more. All in-stock items ship within a week, so most finds can be waiting for you when you get home. 8422 Melrose Ave., L.A., 323.852.3191.

This semi-hidden Hermosa Beach gem, owned by designer-builders Steve and Farnaz Reneker, marries modern and Scandinavian-inspired design with contemporary beach living (think durable, clean-lined and cheerful).

This month, also check out work by L.A.-based photographer Jill Paider. 618 Cypress Ave., Hermosa Beach, 310.374.4300.

They do make ‘em like they used to, evidenced by this boutique rug company founded by L.A.-based Erik Lindström. The Venice flagship is a kaleidoscope of hand-knotted and hand-tufted rugs made from fine natural materials in contemporary and transitional patterns. In addition to leading an in-house design team, Lindström collaborates with top artists to create special collections.
