Amber Valletta’s Stylish Home in Santa Monica

amber valletta santa monica

I recently came across a tour of Amber Valletta’s chic home in Santa Monica. If you were also a fan of Million Dollar Decorators when it aired on Bravo a few years ago, you may remember seeing Amber’s master bedroom transformed by Ross Cassidy on the show. It seems that after filming wrapped, Ross and Amber continued working together on the rest of the charming house, which was unveiled in InStyle last year.

The old Spanish-style houses in Santa Monica, like Amber’s are so lovely. There is something really cozy and inviting about the scale, as well as a distinct rustic charm. Clearly, Amber’s home has been modernized and remodeled, but it maintains a lot of the original details which make the house so special.

  1. Great article! Love it all. Thanks for sharing. The blue trim on the exterior is perfect and I am particularly inspired by the hot pink grasscloth with patterned ceiling. So bold and fresh.

  2. I love that you featured the rest of her home! It was one of my favorite features on the show and its always nice to see designers and homeowners making choices in design that are comfortable and stylish – something they actually live with 🙂
