Emily Ratajkowski’s Boho-Chic Midcentury Home in Echo Park Lists for $2.2M
Making her first modeling debut in 2012, Emily Ratajkowski’s fame has skyrocketed over the past decade. The celeb has walked prestigious runways, had roles in films like Gone Girl and I Feel Pretty, launched a swimsuit line, and written a books of essays titled My Body. The star welcomed son Sylvester last year with husband Sebastian Bear-McClard, but back in 2018 when the couple was still a party of two, they purchased this cool Los Angeles spread. Perhaps having outgrown the midcentury home, they recently listed it for $2.195 million.
The circa-1946 abode is located in LA’s trendy Echo Park neighborhood. Despite its close proximity to downtown, it’s enveloped in trees and greenery and set behind a private gate, making it a quiet escape from prying eyes. Bringing the outside in, natural wood elements flow seamlessly throughout the 1,952-square-foot floorplan, infusing effortless warmth.
Simultaneously minimalist and collected, Ratajkowski gave the home a boho personality that fits the structure well. Currently, it gently balances neutrals and color, funky pieces and white space. Laidback and light-filled, the living room has wooden ceilings and a full-height brick fireplace for keeping cozy. Upstairs past the casual loft area, find the home’s two bedrooms, including the airy primary suite with double-height windows. Here, one can wake up to California sunshine every day.
The lot may only sit on .15 acres, but the backyard offers plenty to relish in. There’s a fire pit, a hot tub, a charming cottage with wood-vaulted ceilings and a bedroom, as well as several entertaining spaces for dining al fresco.
